When it comes to the debate over whether a substance should be legal or illegal, there is no difference between a jar of liquor and a bag of weed. How is it beneficial for one to be legal and the other to be illegal? There is no logical answer to that other than that it's easier to keep the status quo than it is to make changes.

IMO, policies should not be maintained merely to keep the status quo. If changes would ultimately benefit society, then they should be made even if it means difficulties in the present and near future in order to obtain greater benefits in the future.

lol, I appreciate the debate we've had, but this is one of the dumbest things I've ever read in my life:

Making drugs illegal has worked at making some very bad people very rich, accomplishing positive results not so much.

And your ideas about keeping black market jobs illegal for the sake of the national economy sounds like a very weird form of socialism to me. I'd rather tax and regulate and see what happens.

I vaguely remember this cat. I recall that they were very worried about witness/juror intimidation/harassment.

He is not drug lord status, but big for a street dealer. Where does the stuff come from that goes to Nola? Into the port or from Houston?

Of course they don't commute, all their jobs are are local.


Comparing these knuckleheads to any type of real organized crime is ludicrous. They spent most of their time getting arrested or killing one another.
The 43.2M asset number is way overblown.

A bunch of dangerous thug POS? Yes.

They clearly lacked any real orgazation to stay afloat for long.

Just like the dollar amounts LEOs use when they confiscate drugs, DAs always exaggerate the assets of a crime enterprise.

Those guys usually can't even make bail.

To be honest, I don't this for an absolute fact, I'm just basing my opinion on what they've done in the past.

If you take a macro view you will see its not as simple as you think.

It would be interesting if someone could publish a non-biased, thoroughly researched document that would go over the intricacies of both sides of the argument (legalization vs. current situation).

Of course, there's no way that no one source could be viewed as absolute on the issue. I do agree though, there are other issues that would result from the legalization of drugs.
