Let's put this into perspective people. Drugs are bad, they are bad for ones health, and the need for drugs puts innocent ones in danger Aka violence. Here's the catch, alcohol is bad, it is bad for ones health, and it puts innocents in danger(drunk driver). Cigarrettes are bad, bad for ones health and puts innocent(non-smokers) in danger for the risk of their health. Getting my drift? It's all the same, statistics show if drugs were actually legalized it would: 1. Make our economey do a 360 and in 1month the US would be in a positive stand point instead of a negative. And 2. Violence would go down, the reason drug attics use violence is the fact the drug they are looking for isn't available stat, on demand. Don't you get angry when a store is out of an item you are looking for? You drive to 5diff stores and you keep getting more and more angry. Just saying..
So using your logic we should make prostitution legal so some people would not have to be raped when some sex addict needs a fix, they would be able to get it whenever they wanted.
Pedophilia should be legalized so children won't be killed (violence) so the pedophile can escape prosecution (no witnesses).
Convenience stores should have a till of money so the would be robber can just come in and grab a handful rather than use violence to steal it and risk the clerks life.
Even if I go to 10 stores because I cannot find what I am looking for I have never used violence and stole it from somebody.
Your logic is ridiculous and you don't understand addiction and the ill effects of drug use.

First off, a prostitute uses means of getting drugs that they wouldn't use if it were "legal". Yes there is still going to be violence in this world, that's a given. There would be less of it however if they made everything legal. Of course it should all be monitored just as alcohol is, and of course the effects of it would still be the same. You rarely see or hear about shootings/violence OVER alcohol. Yes, you do see domestic abuse/violence WITH alcohol, but no ones killing ppl over the WANT or the NEED for it, bc if you got a couple bucks you can go into any store and buy it lol that's my point I'm trying to make.

On the sex addict note, I'm not talking about sex addicts, drugs. Yes there's still going to be alot of that crazy sh!t happen, but it WOULD lower the crime rate.

And I do understand addiction, and it turned me into a violent person. I'm clean now, but looking back..other than the fact that I was troubled, and yes it had side effects, I was more violent when I didn't/couldn't get it. If I'd have been able to go down to the local walmart, I'd have kept to myself and no bother anyone. It just makes more sense.

The pros of legalizing drugs are very limited and do nothing but make murderous criminals respected businessmen.

Legalize marijuana and all the drug cartels responsible for murders in Mexico are now businessmen.

Drugs are harmful to society they alter peoples ability to think clearly and result in violence. Do you really think the price of drugs will go down if they are made legal?

Check out the amount of taxes on a pack of smokes, I remember when they were only a buck a pack. Thanks to taxes they are not close to 5 bucks a pack and in some areas of the country close to 9 bucks a pack. This is for the name brand smokes.

Do you think an drug user will control or limit his drug use and be responsible? Look how many lives have been destroyed by alcohol which is a legal drug.

Go talk to law enforcement there is more violence (especially domestic) resulting from alcohol a legal drug.

Which drugs would you propose to legalize and which would remain illegal or do you propose to legalize all of them?

Well see you are missing the point completely! If you legalize any/all drugs, the person wanting the drugs wouldn't go to another person on the street for it(the murder criminals, drug cartels, etc) those guys would be shut down. The govnmt should then put in place unknown people, that has had no previous exp/ in that field to regulate/make and control the sales of it. It shouldn't be put in a public place of business right next to the snickers and soda. It should be in a separate place of business with age being a factor of weather or not you can purchase it. If you use the drug and try to operate a MV, DWI and DUI should still be issued.

I'm mainly talking about marijuana. The others would be much harder to regulate and control. Plus it has longterm adverse side effects. Whch so does smoking/alcohol but it's much more worse.

I'm just not understanding why it's legal to have tobacco and alcohol but not marijuana. And this is coming from a beer drinking, cigarrette smoking person. I hate weed, it makes me sleep, what fun is that?

It just doesn't make any sense. 400K ppl a year die from lung cancer/heart disease. 200k per year OD, 100k per year from alcohol related. 0 ppl per year die from smoking weed. It's ass backwards.

I smoke 1pack of cigs per day and I drink with friends every weekend almost. If the govnmnt would come to terms with these statistics and legalize marijuana. Id lay down the cigs and beer for the rest of my life. I hate this govnmt I hate The Federal Reserve. Hitler was a better person than the shadow govnment (elite) of America is. They put innocent men and women in war, brainwash them to think they are fighting for freedom when all thy are doing is lining the pockets of the elite(Federal Reserve).

The drug cartels have lost close to 5 billion dollars due to the government. Violence will not stop if drugs are made legal. The drug cartels want all the money and don't want the government taking a slice of their pie through taxes. This is the way cartels work. You are either a member of the cartel making the boss money or you are its enemy.

I agree it doesn't make since to have tobacco and alcohol legal either. More and more laws are made restricting the use of tobacco, DDT was banned because they thought it caused cancer.(This is a topic for another discussion, but DDT has never been proven to cause cancer). Tobacco is known to cause cancer and it is legal, you can consume as much as you can afford. Nothing good has ever came out of a bottle of alcohol but it is legal also. I know many lives that have been destroyed by alcohol.

I was once a drinker and smoker (tobacco and weed) but I gave them all up because they all lead to a dead end in life.

I doubt you would quit drinking and smoking if the government legalized marijuana.

I am with you on this one 100%. The federal reserve needs to be completely abolished. A private organization should not control what our money is worth nor should they be afforded the power they have without being elected by the people.

This has been a problem for as ling as I can remember and the same people are dealing. What the story doesn't tell is that of the 27 bust the majority were people who were purchasing the drugs. How about actually now going after the crooked cops and the meth dealers!
yes, users of hard drugs need treatment and dealers need to
be prosecuted..

law enforcement needs to stop harassing drug users and solve the problem by removing the source, the dealer.

it's a waste of police resources arresting minor drug abusers.

we've got bigger fish to fry, don't we?

most especially, peace loving Marijuana smokers should
be left alone, they're not harming anyone either.

Marijuana does not lead to a dead end in life.

Many people drink and smoke tobacco for the thrill.

I want to have a safer option.

I don't want to drink or smoke tobacco.

but if I wanted to smoked pot, suddenly i have a problem?

legalize it.

I dont get it. When the cops arrest them they hand them over to the court systems and then it is up to our judicial system to take care of them. the police are only as good as the evidence they can get. I certainly dont want their jobs nor do i think anyone of us could do any better. Im not saying there isnt crooked officers but there are more honest ones than crooked. So lets support them!

NO, you are missing the most salient aspect of these 'exercises'...the local cops can (and virtually always DO) confiscate any property the want from the accused with NO judicial authority. Even if the victims of these legalized thefts are eventually exonerated it's still almost impossible to get their property back. This is a HUGE nationwide problem...in big cities AND in rural places as well.
