No.

scumbag informants don't have the balls to hold their own amongst the dealers OR the balls to join the police

No stupid. I realize that this is the age of Rap, so all you little nit wits think that being a drug dealer, a pimp, or a "Ho" is a valid career choice, but let me clear up your confusion.
Drug dealers are scum, pimps are scum, and hos are scum. They do not deserve respect, nor are there any rules of behavior that protect them.

There is no special code of behavior that anyone needs to follow in order to turn in a drug dealer. You don't have to confront them first, you don't have to give them any special consideration.

I know your musical heroes tell you otherwise, but here's a bit of information for you; the folks in charge don't live by the scumbag rules of the street, we don't think that drug dealers are heroes, and we don't have to follow any of your stupid rules when it comes to how we treat drug dealing scum. They have no honor, and they get no special consideration.

Drug dealers are only heroes in your little fantasy world. In the real world, they are considered scum, and will be treated like scum. And if one piece of scum wants to turn on another piece of scum, they don't have to do it according to some stupid concept of honor, because neither side has any.

no, asinine... dealers are not all scum, they are like anyone..... some are bad some are okay.
hos, certainly are not scum, and it too is a valid occupational choice... it's called a service, just as any service, people want drugs or sex they pay for what they want.
informing is the adult equivilent of telling teacher, and like those little brats that did that they are only out for themselves, either getting themselves out of trouble or thinking they're some special thing because of it.... well of course you don't have to confront them, if you did, then you wouldn't because of your lack of balls
not scum ~ service providers...... and myob as should everyone when it comes to what anyone else is putting into their bodies/using for their minds .....or if they are paying for sexual services......prostitutes are not scum, just people trying to earn money........ a few will screwyou over, but that's the case with anything in life involving money

Eactly what I was talking about. Illiterate high school drop outs who think crime is somehow a valid career choice.
That's ok, its not your fault that you were raised by scum, and surrounded by scum. But let me assure you, prostitutes and drug dealers are not heroes, and they dont have legitimate jobs. They are criminals.
I understand that everything you see and hear in music and movies tells you that these scumbags are just regular folk trying to earn a living, but they are not. They are scum.

Clueless Joe King...... I'm not a drop out and I don't get my views from music or movies. I am not scum or been raised as or by scum...... enough assumptions on your part I think..... something you could try... instead of accepting the conventional stereotypes.
I know a few prostitutes and dealers .....it's against the law... but that doesn't mean it should be....... laws can and do change when it's realised that they are wrong or no longer considered appropriate. As said, some are scum, but some are not... just as in any walk of life.
I think most would rather have a prostitute around than a mugger....... and as for dealers..... people want drugs or there wouldn't be dealers..... why should a bunch of adults tell another adult what they can or can' put into their bodies. If legalised there would be less need for dealers to be in cohoots with organised crime .....they could for a large part be separated from victim crime....... and the police and other resources could be used to combat that instead of pissing about with tell-talers and individual drug sellers

...yeah, I do write like a chick after all ...:)
don't necessarily think like one though

people want drugs... that's why there are dealers
informants are the scum... no integrity
legal drugs would take the power out of drug crime

so would you inform on a dealer or kit his az ?

logical sane arguments..... here I go again with the circle
one more time, round we go again..... you read it this time please pal

if drugs were legal~~
~they would be affordable and so reduce crime as users could afford them by legit means.. it's the dealers keeping the costs so high, the actual drugs and production is not expensive
~not relying on street dealing would take profits away from the drug cartels and from organised crime and have a knock on effect on all those other crimes the same people are involved in
~it would allow police and other legal resources to stop mincing about drugs and smalltime dealers... and to concentrate and redistribute resources onto genuine crime... where there are actual victims
~the substances could be pharmacologically regulated, reducing the bad health side effects, the incidences of accidental overdose, and the related instances of blood born diseases
~taxes etc, could be paid just as with alcohol/tobacco and be put into available treatment for those who want it [yes there would still be a black market just as with alcohol/tobacco now, but that is almost unavoidable and just like with those it would be minor compared to how it is currently]
~going back to legal resources, prisons freed up, court time, vice squad time.. all freed up to be better spent elsewhere
#and most importantly, it is not the business of any government what an individual chooses to do with their body and what they choose to put into it

am I making sense? or do I need to read my own 'chick' post?

None of your arguments are valid. Your rationalizations about what would happen if drugs were legalized are a fantasy.

Heroin, cocain, and most other drugs were already legal once. It didnt work out well, and thats why they are illegal now.
We already did this. There is no mystery about the outcome, all you have to do is check and see what happened the last time all these things were legal.

There is nothing as foolish as your pro-drug fantasy. It will never happen, it should never happen, and you should grow up and work on something worthwhile instead of desperately arguing for a horrible idea that has already been tried and failed. There is a reason these drugs are illegal, and no amount of ridiculous rationalizations will change the fact that drugs are not a valid choice, and neither is advocating for their legalization.

Really, grow up. People like you are a HUGE pain in the ass.

Not fantasy.... entirely possible.

There was no dire outcome of before when those drugs were legal.... the nation did not become addicts. just as now, some were, some even od'd...... the world did not go to ruin. We could learn from mistakes of the past and ensure any mistakes do not repeat... improvement is a worthy aim and goal. The real problems started when criminalisation came into play...... that's when the drug gangs started, crime, needless od's. And, the continuation of illegality is the fantasy here.... the war on drugs has not worked and never will..... it's believers in it like you who need to do the growing up. I don't see why you'd call me the huge pain, when people like you are the ones keeping crime up, allowing users to die/od, allowing crime gangs to continue, tying up resources which could be better employed elsewhere, giving users of drugs criminal records. Take the power out of the hands of crime syndicate dealers and back where it belongs... in the choices of individuals.... take the "help" out of legality and place it into health/pharmaceutical professionals

Incorrect, on every level.
Legalizing drugs is a very bad idea, it would have disastrous effects, and it will never happen.
Supporting the idea of legalizing drugs is insanely stupid.

no disastrous effects would happen..... what do you think everyone would rush out and become addicts.... that's nonsense...... alcohol and cigarettes are legal..... not everyone drinks or smokes, or ever wants to...... there are addicts to them but they are few
people are going to use drugs legal or not, whether anyone likes it or not... that's the reality
people having been making use of drugs from time immemorial ....caveman no doubt chewed certain leaves/flowers knowing their effect
legalisation would not change that [not long term, sure there could be an initial peak in interest from the curious, but that would dwindle] all it would do is make everyone [users and the victims of addicts' crimes] safer
never happen? perhaps not, but then again who'd a thought pot would be legal in some places
supporting legalisation goes some way to keeping the issue in people's minds, and thereby keeping it in the minds of policy and law makers....... at the very least it goes some way to adding support to decriminalisation

You state your speculations as if they were facts. The only fact is that drugs destroy lives because of their negative effects, not because of their legal standings. Making drugs legal would not remedy this.
And as someone who works in a detox I can tell you that if heroin were legal there would be a huge increase in the number of users. That isnt even debatable. Common sense needs to triumph over wishful thinking and idealistic fantasy. Legalizing drugs would not create a population of enlightened individuals who are in touch with the cosmos. It would take an existing population of helpless addicts and triple it. And in case you dont know this, detox and rehab are only successful in about 5 percent of cases.
Its usual just a temporary solution. Increasing the number of people who need these services would be insanely stupid. Making these drugs legal would only eliminate the legality aspect, which isnt the most devastating element of drug abuse.

And here's an additional element that you have a misconception about.
Out of the 97 people who have been to our detox in 2014 so far, only 6 had drug related arrests. The other 91 clients had no arrests related to drug possession. Their legal issues related to their behavior while they were on drugs, or they were related to what they did to get the money to buy drugs.
As far as legalization driving down the price, these people werent going to work to earn their drug money, so cheaper prices wouldn't have made a difference to them. And, heroin is already cheaper than its ever been in the Boston area, and it hasnt had a positive effect on the drug problem, it had made it worse.

'what they did to get the money'

legalising would reduce the price greatly....... less crime to fund

'behavior while they were on'

same can be said for alcohol

'weren't going to work.......heroin is already cheaper than its ever been'

non- working people usually can afford legal things like cigarettes and alcohol so they could afford drugs too with that same money. some would still commit crimes just as some do now to get things they want other than drugs
even cheaper it's still relatively expensive compared to the cheapest tobacco & drink

many speculations, yes. also, facts, people do od in instances where if the product was pharmacolgically regulated that could be prevented. people od when they haven't been able to obtain for a while.... if they could have a regular supply that wouldn't happen. people get unnessary ill health from the carp dealers use too. these are facts.
I realise making drugs legal would not be the be all and end all answer, there isn't one.
I know what drugs can do and about what addiction can do........ point is keeping them illegal is not helping to the problems it's adding to them

I beleive it's crazy to say legalisation would triple addicts/drug use. why would it ?
sure, to start with there would be a number of 'tryers' and that might have an initial increase in users/addicts, but then that would peter out. those who don't want to use won't do so just because it's legal. same with alcohol/smoking, not everyone does it, many have never and never will, and those young people who 'try it' will do so, legal or not. least legal they won't be getting carp for their money they have had to gain illegally too
like I said, the vast majority of those who are wanting to and going to use are already doing so. most aren't going to just because it's legal. handled appropriately in the media/education, there will still be the aversion to druguse [similar to what there is now to cigarette smoking] and most won't want anything to do with it

As I said, the majority of the legal problems that our clients face are not related to possession. The legality of the drugs is not the issue with most of these people, its not the reason they are hung up and have to live in a detox.
