The bottom line is that those of us who follow the rules have lost the game. I've just about given up on having any hope for our future. Parasites and criminals are taking over and we can't stop it.

This drug war employee feels strongly on this. There is no stopping the demand for drugs in this society. I've seen a lot of people destroy their lives from drug abuse. No matter what your position on drugs are, there is no denying that it hurts a lot of people through addiction, physical damage and violence.

Yes, so does alcohol.

Two wrongs don't make a right. My position is smoke away as far as I'm concerned. If things go wrong in your life as a result of it don't come crying to me about your problems. Don't ask society to support you because you can no longer earn a living as result.

I would be interested to see some science applied to this. Now that we have a few states that have legalized marijuana, I will be interested to see of drug related violence decreases. In theory, it should. For instance, it is very common to make a drug trafficking arrest and the offenders will be armed in the commission of their crimes. I wonder if the dealers will no longer feel the need to be armed while making their deals?

My guess would be No because drug sealers often victimize each other and I don't see that changing. I could be wrong, though.

Again, I don't care if people use drugs. It is a personal decision, I just say that you should live with the consequences without asking society to take of you if things go bad for you.

Do bootleggers and moonshiners still kill with the regularity that they did during prohibition in the 20's?

I don't think anyone will disagree with you here.

Some of us don't smoke, snort or shoot and think the drug war is a waste. Let's stop wasting money protecting people from themselves.

LSUwag doesn't want to end his gravy train. Plain and simple. That's how liberals vote. They're not concerned about the moral or ethical reasons.

Pot - yes, other drugs - no.

If any form of illicit drugs gets the okay to go legal then I see a big increase in mandatory drug testing from employers. Random testing will be a thing of the past. What percent intoxication by pot will be allowed? Where I use to work it was zero tolerance.

You my friend couldn't be more wrong about me. I'm a conservative who leans libertarian on a lot of issues. I've never voted for a liberal in my life.

Believe it or not, I deal with a lot more crimes than drug crimes. I deal with some very bad people in my career and I do a damned good job at preventing them from victimizing more people. I am also very good at dealing with addictions and addressing relapses before the cases end up back in prison as a result.

I am always amazed at how quickly pro drug posters use personal attacks rather than have a legitimate discussion. As I have previously stated. I Don't give a frick if you want to use drugs. I do care of you are committing drug trafficking crimes that lead to victimization of innocent people. If you get yourself killed then I say good. You probably deserved it anyway.

Damn Dude, have a reasonable discussion for once in your life.

I used to be for the drug war and prohibition but have changed my mind over time. Honestly believe the dangers of drugs are more in the black market than actual use.

Are there dangers associated with use? Yep, but the violence and cost of prohibition is just so much worse in my opinion.

Those discussions are had weekly on here and it's pointless because no amount of facts or logic can help a person who bases their decisions on emotion and fear.

Impossible to do with someone who claims to be libertarian-leaning while getting paid stolen money to restrict freedoms.

They will say coke, heroin, ect needs to be leagal for tax purposes, reduce crime and jail overcrowding.

I don't know about tax purposes, but for the issue of liberty I say it should be. We shouldn't pick and choose what issues we want to be free to do. Seems everyone wants rights until it's not something they particularly care for.

You are either for freedom or not. Some people prefer a crafted society orchestrated by the state. No thanks.

Then don't be a shitty parent. Why do you want the government raising your children? Are abortion, genocide, bailouts, and internment camps ok because the govt. says so?

One hell of a slippery slope. How far do you want to take that?

Say what? Such a flawed way of thinking.

There always has to be some restrictions in life or there would be complete utter chaos.


There ya go. Big government, social engineering is popular and will always will be.

These restrictions don't work and cost way too much for the results we get.
