I disagree. If the Gov would end the drug war, these criminal activities would stop. Do you know, the war on drugs is what's causing central American countries to suffer, resulting in them coming to the US?<quoted text>
I will make it as simple as I can for you because you are so deceived and darkened by your dope that you have become a dope.
You say you have smoked for years and never got arrested so in YOUR WARPED MIND that makes what you did okay. You are not hurting anyone. You do it in the privacy of your own home. You are swimming in money. That makes it all better.
Well, some people have murdered people for years and never got caught or arrested.
Some people have raped and not been arrested.
Some have tortured people and not been arrested.
And they are all swimming in money.
You think I am being extreme at this point, I'm sure.
But the truth is that you are complicit in the crimes of all those people that got you your dope. You financed their behavior. Everyone they KILLED and RAPED and TORTURED is on YOU because you financed it all just so you could smoke your dope. And all those kids fleeing the violent drug lords and crossing the border is YOUR FAULT.
Years ago a young man asked me to write a letter to a sentencing judge. He was arrested because he had child pornography on his computer (incredibly horrible stuff). He told me "I was only watching stuff on the computer in the privacy of my own home. I'm not guilty of nothing."
My thought was that if it were pictures of MY children on his computer, then he would have had problems of a much more serious nature. However, "I didn't hurt nobody!" was how he justified his criminal actions.
His family ended up losing their successful business that they had for YEARS over his selfish behavior.
But keep lying to yourself. I don't have a problem. I ain't hurtin' nobody. Yet in fact you are financing a world of hurt for some people
It needs to be decriminalized, at the very least. It is just a cash cow for law enforcement and a paid cot for the prison industry. I am sick of being victimized by the police, to fund the city. You have to watch everything you do, or the cops will rob you.
