Do laws work? It is against the law to smoke pot for recreation, do people smoke pot?<quoted text>So, all laws should be abolished.
It is against the law to cheat on your income taxes, do people cheat?
The point is laws do not work. People do not change their behaviour because of some law somewhere other than to be more careful and try not to get caught.
If guns were completely illegal, nothing would change for criminals as they would still have access to guns in exactly the same way they do now.
All the pot dealers I know are NOT pro legalization because they know should pot be legal that people would buy their pot at the local 7-11 store when they stop off for their cigarettes and beer on the way home instead of going to their friends house or some stranger and risking being robber and sold oregano.
If we are going to have laws we need to acknowledge that they do not work.
Can you think of a law that works?
