War on Drugs...
    #4546827 - 08/17/05 03:31 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I agree the war on drugs is fucked up for the fact that I don't agree with innocent people being thrown in jail for being in posession of a substance.

However if the war on drugs was ended a lot of people would be out of business.

Would you rather have the government growing and putting taxes on things such as cannabis or cocaine?

m00nshine is currently vacationing in Maui. Rumor has it he got rolled by drunken natives and is currently prostituting himself in order to pay for airfare back to the mainland but he's having trouble juggling a hairon addiction. He won't be back for a long while.

yea i'd rather be able to smoke in public then hide it like a feign, plus the price would probably end up dropping so the tax still wouldn't be as much as it would to buy it from the streets now. and what the hell do i care about the people who fight for the war on drugs if they go out of business?

if the government were to allow cannabis to become legal there most definitely be a catch, and most likely it would be taxed like you said.

Even if cannabis were taxed it would still cost less than it does now, but the money saved from ending the war on drugs would eliminate the need to tax cannabis.

I don't care if it's taxed or not. I'll gladly pay high taxes on pot if that means I'll finally be able to live without the threat of jail for smoking a plant that grows naturally on planet earth. Hell, if it were legal I'd prolly just start mixing it in food to save on my lungs.

Think for yourself. Question authority.

Forgiveness is the ultimate sacrifice.

You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time.

Those who profit from the war on drugs will continue to support it, regardless of the damage it does.
