    I wish every politician/government worker in Washington DC would legalize freedom by simultaneously inserting pistols into their mouths and blow their own brains out.

    Even more simple would be to realize that prohibition of drugs doesnt work and is always going to be an extremely expensive and highly ineffective policy.

    However, the other illicit drugs? NO WAY!

    They make the people who use them absolutely crazy and sometimes dangerous.

    They refused to follow an immoral law, nothing wrong with that. Why in the world would you put people in jail for life if they use drugs, and why only that specific age group? The prisons are already too crowded and you want to put more people in jail for longer periods of time. That's ridiculous.

    People don't do drugs in jail. At least they aren't hurting the people they love. And hate.

    Yes, they do, and they aren't hurting anyone doing drugs in their homes either. Any crimes committed while on drugs would still be crimes, but it shouldn't be a crime to do something to your own body.

    I wouldn't necessarily have a problem with ALL drugs being legal if they could only be consumed in regulated locations... but, the flaw in the logic behind legalizing all drugs is the assumption that they all equally affect the individual user similarly and don't, according to specific substance, cause different reactions to users. There is a giant difference between how a coke or meth user reacts to their drug than a pot smoker.

    Well we all know that drugs are bad, and have very negative consequences. But if somebody wants to take that risk who are we to tell them they can't?
