    Look, booze has run my life for years (though I am presently sober) and I do know both it's glory and shame, it is a tough bastard to break away from once really addicted but I think the difference between alcohol and crack would be most people can drink and not let it control their lives. (We alcoholics are still the minority, and some of us can even function while bing one.)

    How many people can use crack habitually, every day and still function? How many people can just use it for recreation their entire lives like most can with booze?

    Oddball spoke thusly: "It's to keep the police and prisons fully employed"

    The FBI found that about 95%+ of all serial murderers were raised by alcoholic parents, and not one by a stoner.

    If you drink the right amount of alcohol, and if you're lucky, you can sometimes find some crack... No need to worry about what she looks like until you wake up in the morning.

    as to the first sentence, that's silly and was clearly intended as something tongue in cheek.

    (at least I hope so).

    as to the second, you're correct. i've also never seen a stoner in a bar fight. but that speaks to the minimal difference between pot and alcohol.. not crack.

    what DOES speak to racism in sentencing is the disparity between sentences for crack cocaine and powder cocaine -- the first being predominantly a drug of choice for poor minorities; the latter being a drug of choice for rich white people.

    No, Oddball is profound as usual. Making recreational activity criminal just serves to keep law enforcement fully employed.

    But the correct answer is to decriminalize drugs

    he's never been profound... or even correct about anything. :)

    we should legalize pot and perhaps consider decriminalization and provisions for registered addicts like they have elsewhere. it would be cheaper than keeping them in jail.
