Are you ready to end the drug war yet?


Prohibition didn't work the first time....unless empowering a black market was the actual goal. It is beyond clear to all but the most pig headed that prohibition hasn't worked the second go round either. Most all of these drugs existed long before drug laws did, and more and more of them will appear - simply because of human nature. Also, making a thing illegal makes it more attractive. So, when will you decide that the world's largest prison population is not what you want here? Are you ready to end it? We have the power, government has no power unless we give it to them.

    Paula, the mixing of "Hollier than thou idiots" with vulture capitalists was a devil's mix for sure!

    Well, there is a difference between legalization and de-criminalizing the whole deal. Were it just de-criminalized, that would maybe be the best solution.

    You've very much missed the point.

    All of these drugs existed before drug laws - drug prohibition is what made them "sexy."

    Absolutely, Sir!

    Most of the times I've been arrested...I deserved it.

    But not everyone is so lucky as I. I've been out of my mind thousands of times and had the wherewithal to not get arrested, and I shouldn't have been arrested either.

    WILLIE!!!!!!!!!! While I can honor the sentiment of your comment - I'd wind up homeless were I to move in that direction, the landlord (Mr. Shaw) would say I was trying to ruin his upstanding reputation, or something like that. He's not Mr. Reason.
