As long as doctors are handing out addictive drugs like candy this will escalate.

Where is your brain, it is exactly the opposite, if doctors would hand out addictive drugs like this the robberies to get them would be un-heard of. Hydrocodone, the drug this guy had got before on a prescription, is cheap something like $ 10 for a bottle and the drug store will have plenty of it, maybe even cheaper than that. However, if you have to buy it on the street you will pay like $8 a pill and you might find it when you want it or you might not. If drugs were legal the guy would have no trouble getting or paying for it.

Drug violence is caused by 3 things, 1- fighting over the money illegal drugs bring. 2. Addicts being denied access to their drugs. 3. People not wanting to go to jail over drugs. All three of these things we brought on ourselves through legislation. Prohibition did not work with alcohol and it will not work with drugs either.

The doctors do receive rebates, trips and things you know. Some have become pill pimps for sure.

Sure if you can not articulate what is wrong with the argument then call names.

Ron Paul loonyism boils down to liberty to make and be responsible for my own decisions rather than let the government make them.

The best theory of the primary cause of violent crime in the United States is a violent black market caused by the War on Drugs today, and Prohibition in the 1920s.

as you legalize drugs, as you make your own decisions, think about or look up the youtube video of the chimp the terrorist gave a machine gun to. You will legalize murder.

I have seen that video and it is a cut from a movie in cause you were unable to figure out it was fake. I don't do drugs but if I wanted to I don't see it is any of your or the governments business. Back when America was free if you wanted to do them you did, if you did not want to you did not. I don't like other people trying to control my life, if this country had been populated by people like you we never would have had a government but what the Crown allowed us.

Yes, you are welcome to be a stoner, I could care less. You all move to California and you will soon be working for the Mexicans. Druggies are not productive people. Only fools put poison in their system.

A drug user is STILL going to have to rob and steal to support their drug habit even if the drugs are legal. They can't hold a job and they still would be subject to drug testing by employers. Your argument is invalid about legalizing drugs.

So if you agree with this war on drugs then you must think the government is in the business from stopping someone from being a fool?

I never said employers could not fire the dopers. That is their business. They won't have to rob and steal any more than a drunk does. The only reason they rob and break in houses is the drugs cost so much because the government created a black market for them.

I am old now and don't know any dopers but when I was in high school and college I knew several and never knew one who robbed someone but I am sure it happens somewhere. Even if it does why do you have to hold that against responsible drug users? Most people agree with the statement that you should be free to do something as long as it does not hurt another person. But the minute you say ok, then it is ok if I smoke weed isn't it they go, oh no, not drugs, drugs are bad.
