    I think drugs shouldn't be illegal, they're production/import should be though.
    A* I’m a dreadful reactionary, Mrs. Helena. I don’t like this progress one bit.
    H* Like Nana.
    A* Yes, like Nana. Does Nana have a prayer book?
    H* A big fat one.
    A* And are there prayers in it for various occurrences in life? Against storms? Against illness?
    H* Against temptation, against floods -
    A* But not against progress, I suppose?
    H* > I think not.
    A* That’s a shame.

    Just because drugs became legal doesn't mean everyone would do them.
    Noone i know would go smoke a crack rock tommorow just because it was legal (if it became so).


    Despite prohibition, anyone who wants drugs can get them easily already anyway.

    If drugs were legalized then a major source of economic activity would be withdrawn from ghettos. Legalize them and then a lot of ghetto residents would not be able to make any money at all - pharmacies would sell them instead.

    I think banning them does more harm than good, mostly for reasons already mentioned. I think drugs should have the same restrictions as alcohol-no use when driving or at work, must be 21 to obtain/use, etc.

    Drug abuse isn't so much a result of the availability of drugs as a result of the drug abuser's attitude towards life-failure to control behavior, acting for instant gratification without regard to later consequences and so on, and these people will always find a way to screw up their lives.

    I believe getting stoned out of your mind should be an unalienable right that should be incoporated in the Constution.

    I can understand why drugs are illegal though. Certain drugs have some pretty nasty after effects.

    Even if they are cheaper legally, there will still be problems relating to them.

    And people who use drugs are really annoying as well ^^

    More people are going to use drugs if it's legalised than whether it's criminalised and illegal. I don't care if you want to apply the pseudopsychology that legalising fixes the problem because it doesn't and won't.

    More people may use them however the overall impact of the drug culture on society will be less damaging. I'm not claiming to be able to fix the problem, frankly I don't think its ever going away, I'm just suggesting what I believe would be a better way of managing a problem.

    I think the term you were looking for is pseudosociology.

    I've seen too many people destroyed by drugs to support their legalisation. They should remain illegal.
