why?
    #1340115 - 02/27/03 10:41 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

why have drugs become illegal in the first place? why shouldnt consenting *adults* be able to do what the want to do? if they knew the risks, why should any government want to stop them. theyll only be hurting themselves. i just dont get it. hopefully the u.s. will decriminalize marijuana. i mean, were one of the only places around the world with such harsh pot laws. when i traveled to europe in the summer, people would smoke joints out in parks in the middle of cities in the middle of the day! i would be scared shitless to do that........our country is really messed up.......

It doesn't matter why or even HOW drugs have become illegal.... what matters is why they SHOULD be legalized, and HOW :wink:

thats just my opinion tho..

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

first drug laws were used as a weapon for racism. they targetted black jazz musicians, and mexican migrant workers. it then progressed into fuckin with the chinese, and their opium. slowly, we deteriorate every other culture in the world, until we make sure that everything has become fuckyou watered-down capitilistic consumerist americanized bullshit.

prepare for mass propoganda...

The government used to sell opium too, along with England. Hell, they used the money to help build the first railroads! ( Why do you think so many Chinese workers used to come here to work on it? Rice wasn't the only thing they were getting! ) And when China got pissed about us smuggling opium into thier country, the US and England basically told them to "fuck off"! Drug laws are totally whack, and they WILL eventually change.

Seriously, I think the drug laws highlight the disconnected relationship that humans have developed with the earth.
Modern society has majorly weakened the bond I believe we used to have with our Mother amidst a flurry of technology.
We've gone so far into our own heads and projected realites that we've decided certain plants should be condemned and the people who use them be shunned and locked away.

Conspiracy theories aside, it all comes from ignorance.
Ignorance = fear.
Unfortunately over the years we've chosen to elect some of the most fear driven individuals to the highest offices.
Why?
Because they're good liars?
