The "drug war" is a veiled assult on individual liberty. Not many here support it but I've seen people here write they support the continued prohibition of hard drugs, as if it's ok because they don't use those drugs.

You are correct. There are more than a few here who believe marijuana and natural hallucinogens should be legalized, but that some other drugs from natural sources (opiates, cocaine) should not be. Still others are willing to extend their okay to opiates and coca, but not to "refined" opiates and coca, such as heroin and crack. There are quite a few who are against legalizing synthetic drugs that don't exist in nature (apparently forgetting that LSD and MDMA are synthetics) and a LOT who are against legalizing speed.

Their justifications for continuing the prohibition of some drugs but not all is just as lame as the government's position. There is quite literally no moral difference whatsoever in their positions -- they differ only in the details.

I used to only think weed should be legal, but then once I really thought about it, why not just let 'em all rip.

i say all drugs should be legal (with the exception of bona fide poisons of course). i think there might be one person here who believes in drug prohibition. if anyone.. i'm thinking it'll be that new guy.. that rather shady, blindly 'patriotic' one...

Tis a well noan fact (must be cus duh gubment says its so) that drug use supports terrierism. Either yer fur us or yer agin us. So I support the drug laws. I supoprt the patriot act 1 an 2. God Bless Jorj Bush. To hell wit all ya drugged out hippys. Now let us go kik ass on a tin pot dick taster.

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

The failed drug war seems to be escalating recently with marijuana as its focus. John Walters is scared, he's on the run. But it's big business, they have got to be making a fucking killing on all the money & assets they steal/seize. Add the DEA to Nixon's list of evil deeds. As for marijuana and the law here's a good quote from 'ole Abe.

The best way to get a bad law repealed is to enforce it strictly.

I remember reading a post (it was years ago, I think it was a usenet post) where some guy was saying that he wanted marijuana to remain illegal so he could keep selling it.

That made me angry. Greedy bastard would allow thousands of people to be imprisoned, murdered, and raped so that he could make a buck.

I'm sure there's a few people around here who think like that, but they won't bring it up because a) they don't want to admit to being a dealer, and b) they don't want to be tarred and feathered.

Naturally occurring "drugs" should not be regulated, stuff mixed in your bath tub on the other hand, should be. But I don't see any sort of legalization happening. The "War on Drugs" is America's main exucse for keeping operatives in Central and South America. But such is life...

see... i used to feel that way... that of course... 'natural' drugs should be legal... but not meth and whatnot...but come on... i think people should have the freedom to decide what they put into their bodies, no matter what the origin. the only problem i have with meth is the large amount of toxic waste byproducts.

In a perfect world, i would say that all drugs should be legal, but just picture being able to buy crack and herion legally. Since we live in a capitalistic society, corporations would take over the trade, and find a way to make these things even more addicteive, like the tobacco companies. I think that all drugs should be legal, but only nonaddictive drugs should be allowed to be sold. In my opinion tobacco should be illegal to sell, it's a business built on addiction.

Hell yeah, I support the drug war. I've been waiting for the invasion of Columbia so the price of coke will drop even further.






oops, wrong war
