    I don't really understand your question.  Could you re-word it?  Here's the deal, the fact that some drugs are illegal in no way or manner make those drugs, by and large, any more dangerous than the legal drugs.

    Some drugs are kept illegal because our pseudo "Christian" populace is an ignorant group-this is why marijuana is illegal.  That, and Mr. R.J.R., Phillip Morris, and the Bronfsman cartel would loose profits, you dig?

    There are drugs that, in my opinion, should never, ever be legal. . . .crack cocaine has absolutely no use whatsoever.  Cocaine does have uses. . . as a localized anesthetic.

    Things like methamphetamine are supposedly illegal, but the truth of the matter is that prescription drugs such as vyvanse are the exact same damn thing.

    The decision to say smoke weed or try cocaine (for example) is that harder to make for a person who has never done such things than is the decision to quit using drugs for a person who is addicted. Which person would find the decision more dificult: the one who would think about quiting or the person who thinks about starting?

    Your question is worded slightly awkwardly, but I think your question is: How hard is it to start a drug habit vs. How hard is it to stop drug addiction? Essentially, you espouse a stylistic way of posing the rhetorical question, in view of the fact that the same person who is addicted is the one who tried the drugs to begin. In short, it is not "hard" to start using drugs, and thus, a drug addict has brought hardship on himself, by himself.

    The question suffers for its poor readability and ambiguity. Are you denouncing "illegal drugs."

    Then, do you agree that 'what is illegal or illicit', and 'what is licit or legal' are questions that have no basis in morality, ethics, or any doctrine as a whole. These are arbitrary judgments. It would help to clarify your question.

    On that note, the question is rather superfluous in that it does not restrain the scope of inquiry, but rather, it is posted in a mocking style, where it's not even clear what the precise matter is.
