    before anybody starts saying ANYTHING, i highly recommend you watch this clip of University of Chicago economics Milton Friedman stating his views on thematter. Its definitely worth watching.

    at least not without other laws to curb the natural byproduct of harm done to other people by those under the influence

    No.

    You can legalize drug usage but not selling.

    Selling results to a lot of young people trying the drugs and getting addicted. I'm talking about 14-17 year olds who might think they are ready to makethe decision but are not.

    They'll just come out with something stronger, better, that will get you higher and more damaging! And everybody would want that drug cause it'sillegal. So the whole cycle will start all over again.

    No, it already ruins thousands of lives a day and its not legal. Just imagine the chaos legalizing it would do

    look man...this country is on some iRobot type business.

    I don't care if you smoke Meth until yo eyes balls pop out...I don't care if the next person does cocaine till the point they Od and kill over, dead asa door knob.

    like I said this country is on some iRobot type business

    it would be good for a law to prevent children from doing drugs...but adults should be able to make their own decisions

    I could honestly care less if drugs were legal or not. Even if they were legal, I wouldn't use most of them. Besides Bud.



    I'll smoke bud everyday when it's illegal. How would things change when it's legal?

    I agree. Yall should read John Stuart Mill's On Liberty. In it he discusses the individual and actions in which the individual should not be heldaccountable for the harm they do. For example with drugs when someone uses them they consent to the risks that the drugs can cause and therefore there is noharm done.

    Also I think if the government oversaw the drug market than there would be less violence.

    yeah....like DUI checkpoints.
    being able to jail and book ppl under the influence for DUI
    being able to seize cars (eg NYC) for ppl driving under the influence.
    being able to sentence those with multiple DUIs with harsher penalties
    being able to revoke the driving privileges of people with multiple DUIs

    so yeah..... those things.

    The wisdom is in their parents heads and not in the kids heads. Or do you claim that all 14-17 year olds always make the same decisions theirparents would make? That's what I meant with the "who might think they are ready to make the decision but are not" part.

    I'd hope a kid who's about to do Crack would at least take a second to think about it. But maybe I'm crazy...
