Canadian Push to Legalize ALL Drugs
This should be interesting to watch (if it happens).

quote:

With months left before Canada becomes the first country in the G7 to fully legalise marijuana, members of the country’s Liberal party, led federally by Justin Trudeau, are calling on their government to go one step further and decriminalise the possession and consumption of all illicit drugs.


If this happens I expect to see a marked increase in tourism to Canada. What I am interested most in seeing is the long-term effects (say 10-20 years down the road) of full legalization.

I don't know how detrimental it could be. It seems the reason most people choose not to shoot heroin isn't solely because it's "illegal".

Can you imagine Montreal for a bachelor party if cocaine is legal. Here Canada, take all my money.

I support this. Let Darwin clean up the gene pool.

No, but if I'm a heroin addict I know where I'm moving to (whether legally or not). Such an influx could eventually tax their social services to the breaking point.

Sure, that's how it works without a welfare state.

At first glance this looks like it would clean up problems in the U.S. via drug tourism, but the economic strata that represents the problem can't afford the travel.

Right. Because most heroin addicts are financially stable people that can pick up and move at any time.

Easy fix.
Split CA into Northern and Southern. Let Canada annex Northern California. Subsidize travel and drugs for the tards to go to San Francisco and do all the drugs they want. The rest of the US will profit.

It is if they want to improve their earners:takers ratio.

There are many poor people from our southern border that didn't have too much trouble achieving this.

Nice. Now they need to push for freedom of speech. You can have the freedom to mainline crack, but don't you dare make a joke about lesbians or muslims.

re: Canadian Push to Legalize ALL Drugs
The argument for tourism is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard for legalizing the hardcore stuff (not talking about pot). So people that want to come to your city or state just to do drugs like meth and crack are supposed to enhance the country? And name one person that uses something like that with stable home life or family? This will end badly.

Not to mention Canada has Common Sense Immigration Laws that require a person have a job/finances to not only support themselves but contribute to the Nation at large, as well as some other stuff like a basic sustainable lifestyle plan.

Must be that racist totalitarianism North of the USA.

Poor doesn’t necessarily mean drug addicted. Also, Canada might do a better job of protecting their southern border than we do.

Easy solution. Don't subsidize drug addiction therapy if you legalize drugs. Do drugs at your own risk. Of course, this is too reasonable and would have a fat chance of being implemented.

So how does this work? Are they going to legalize the use of meth? What about opioids? Are you going to be able to buy them over the counter like candy?

Vancouver is the place to be if you're into drugs. Use of most drugs is already tolerated.
