“The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law for nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase in crime in this country is closely connected with this.”
-Albert Einstein

“Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man’s appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.”
– Abraham Lincoln

Tijuana answers:

Wow. Yet another druggie loser spamming propaganda to justify engaging in a self destructive behavior that the taxpayers are going to end up paying for when they screw themselves up to the point they can no longer function in society.

People will do anything for the high. Even if it destroys their own bodies and they know it destroys their own bodies they will do it anyway. Druggies put innocent people at risk when they get loaded. They are literally out of their freaking minds and are completely unable to care for themselves when they are high. If all that media coverage a couple years ago about people loaded up on ‘bath salts’ (commonly referred to as synthetic marijuana) running naked along freeways and in public attacking and literally chewing off the faces of innocent people doesn’t give a clear illustration of why drugs are illegal then look at this website then come back and tell us with a straight face that drugs should be legalized:

http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/509563/20130927/flesh-eating-drug-krokodil-skin-scales-first.htm

This drug is a perfect example of what kind of damage is done to the human body when a person thinks of nothing else than getting a high. With this specific drug the physical damage is visible on the surface. Just think about what drugs do to the brain. This drug is in the same classification at Meth by the way. What the hell makes a person want to do this to themselves? It’s the high. They care more about the feeling than the self destruction.

Who the f*ck do you druggies think is going to pay for the medical treatments when your bodies finally rot away from the inside out as with most drugs (including alcohol and tobacco)? I whole heartedly believe with every fiber of my being that incarcerating a druggie for life at an average cost of $48,000 a year for life is going to cost the tax payers a whole lot less than a lifetime of medical care expenses for the druggie after they destroy their minds and bodies.

Never should I think that sh*t should be legal as long as there is a potential cost and risk for the rest of us in society.

Helen asks…

Should all drugs be made legal in the UK?

We know that by making things illegal never work remember prohibition of alcohol in America? Likewise there are high drug activity in the UK.

Would it be better just to make drugs legal?

If we just start killing people then the drugs will go away huh? And to hell with that freedom stuff. You know doing what you want so long as you don’t interfere with others. This country is free. They’re rounding up people and perpetrating mass murder. We’re still free. They’re killing Jews in gas chambers. We’re still free. The body pits are full. We’re still free. I’m dead. I’m free.

Tijuana answers:

China tends to have a lower crime rate and more severe punishments for crimes.

If we sentenced our criminals like China does, we’d have a significantly lower prison population.

I’m OK with that – let’s expand the death penalty to more crimes and make it retro-active. Works for me.
