Im not saying i disagree with you, but dont we want to discourage drug use?. Do we really want to say to people, its a great idea to be dependant on drugs for your happiness.
Your article is very worthy of discussion, and Perhaps on some points we agree, but I ask you, dont we want to use economic policy not drugs, to rebuild peoples lives, by giving them opportunities for employment. A.k.a. what magic johnson is doing in the poor community.
Doing the right thing makes us happy, not drugs. Being a kind person makes us happy not drugs.
Your take angel heart?
All I have to say is:
Oh it's really working
Do you believe the government can regulate the drug trade?. They have a hard enough time regulating everything, would that be more kaotic, what would happen.?
The reasons humans use drugs is........................they work.
We've been drinking beer for the last 6,000 years and we didn't start because we didn't like the water
Humans are naturally drawn to consciousness-changing substances. We're just a bundle of hormones anyway so we may as bung a few others in from time to time to shake things up a bit.
Prohibition is a stupid policy. The policy of prohibition itself has caused more misery than even the most patent drugs. Regulate them, educate people about them, try indeed to make sure that people use them responsibly but don't chuck them in the slammer for doing something that's natural to human beings.
It is natural for Humans to kill also, shall we legalize that too?
Interesting point. As far as I know when we are children we're trained, first by our parents and then by our educators, in non-violence. We're not allowed to belt our siblings. Aggression is natural of course, controlling it is necessary and controlling it is a learned behaviour. That's why when the military get nicely socialised people delivered to them from society those nice people have to be broken down and re-fashioned so that if they have to kill someone they will do so without compunction (but within the rules of course).
Now, having dealt with that - your homework is to show me the link between that and the issue of drug prohibition
