    Booze and Tobacco cause plenty of damage. No, I'm not for making them illegal, though.

    They sure do but the cat is already out of the bag regarding those drugs as they are already legal.

    THere is another option that people forget and that is is that the federal government has no power to illegalize drugs. I've checked the constitution's powers and that does not exist in there. With that being said we should restore the constitutional limits of federal power which would legalize drugs on the federal level but individual states would then have the choice to legalize or illegalize depending on their own states.

    Giving people the personal freedom to do something and thinking their choice is wise are two entirely different things. Libertarians think you should have the freedom to choose what you put in your body while at the same time thinking you are a moron for doing so.

    The federal government doesn't have the authority to legalize all drugs. The states should regulate drugs as they see fit.

    I believe that all drugs should be legalized, however. If we accept the notion of self-ownership then how can we support drug prohibition? You should be able to do whatever you want to your own body.

    Yep the problem is keeping stoners from damaging my body by driving badly and such. Or drug addicted parents abusing/neglecting their children.

    A quandry on Liberty.

    Actually it wasn't a catch.. It is as always to point out the hypocrisy of Lush Limbaugh.. You either don't listen to him or to brain washed to notice or hear his tirades about the issue..

    As it is, it seems hardly applicable to point out someone's avatar making a statement about reality, and then applying it to a statement in a forum.. His statements about Lush Limpnoodles has nothing to do with feelings on drugs.. Even though Lush is the poster boy for drugs and stupidity..
