    Again, this is such a misunderstood word, "drugs", that simple questions like this are certain to turn only into more diatribe and division.
    Is caffeine a drug? Is alcohol? Is nicotine? Is marijuana? Is LSD?
    Is addiction, rather than 'drugs', the real problem? One can be 'addicted' to almost anything.
    Ultimately, (and as with the majority of human problems) it is psychology that lies at the heart. 'Evolved' people don't use anything to destructive excess. For them, all prohibitions are unnecessary.
    How many among us are thus 'evolved'?

    I will only qualify my vote by saying all recreational drugs should be legal and not a single penny of tax dollars should go towards rehab programs for addicts.

    Some recreational drugs (ice in particular) can lead to antisocial (violent) behavior.
    But so can alcohol.
    The cost to society of that other recreational drug, nicotine, is huge, and, given that it has no benefit to the user, except allaying those addictive cravings, should definitely be illegal.

    I pray every day that Democrats run candidates on the platform or banning alcohol and smoking.

    But no one is that stupid, are they?

    Yes, they should all be legalized. Free people should be free to ingest anything they like into their body as long as what they're ingesting doesn't harm another. Doing so would probably reduce homicides in America by at least HALF. The abuse of drugs is a health issue and should be treated as such.

    The principle of no public money for self inflicted damage should be thoroughly looked at. This, of course, includes obesity, skiing in avalanche areas, etc. Otherwise, adults will only truly be adults when they are free to choose.

    Yes, it is truly incredible that, as great a nation as America is, with all its wealth, resources and general bounty, Americans seem so dissatisfied, divided and frustrated. There appears to be a cultural malaise that is unjustified by the facts.
