    Americans would favor the legalization of meth and LSD too. Americans would favor of the removal of all penalties for drunk driving (if the party was really fun).

    America is rapidly becoming an entire nation of drunk, drug addicted, degenerates.

    Unfortunately that's also what the rest of the world believes.

    The US Gov't and the Banksters make far too much money shipping in Drugs and Laundering the money to screw it up by making it legal. How else are they gonna' finance their covert wars?

    The only way to weaken the drug cartels is legalized. This is the most powerful argument to legalize. Secondly, it would help out the black community as most of their children do it.

    I'll agree to it only if I'm allowed to grow my own. Just like I grow my tomatoes and corn. Thanks in advance.

    The cartels are not afraid of legalization because they can always undercut the legal price and many of them have moved on beyond drugs into human trafficking. Among all the legal pot shops in California, it was found that they were pretty much all controlled by cartels. The ownership was split between Mexicans and Russians. As for legalizing and increasing drug use in the black community, you might have a point IF the goal is to commit genocide in that demographic.

    The acceptance of the legalization of drugs has a direct connection to the rise of the leech class. It might be necessary to legalize drugs as a method of combating the crushing boredom that plagues the leech class.

    Didn't think I would live long enough to see it but decriminalization is here and likely to gain steam pretty quickly. Still my state will probably be the last one to go for it. It's been since the eighties since I imbibed in that stuff but I may light some up again the day I won't have to worry about arrest.

    Given the choice between an easy government regulated source and a criminal enterprise, most people will go for the legal source. Removing drug income would put a major crimp in the ability of the cartels to keep the money flowing, and since money is all they are interested, they would probably destroy each other to be the "last man standing"

    While some drugs I do agree should not be legalized, it should be tried with pot. We already waste far too much government money on prosecuting pot users.

    Drug laws are actually similar to gun laws, which punish those who can responsibly handle using such things, due to some people not being able to.
