    He was circumventing the law to get what he wanted to feed his addiction rather than what he needed for his affliction.

    Drugs are widespread in prison.

    It would end all of the murder, oppression, theft, and violence they inflict.

    but, again, not all drugs are AS bad as the rest. I can give you a bail of pot and you won't go out robbing people for more pot. Do you think that would be the same if I gave you a brick of coke?

    I guess a better question to ask if you've ever had first hand experience with anyone high on coke or meth versus high on pot.

    Not that I'm aware of. Regardless, if they commit a crime then they should be charged for that crime. But doing drugs in and of itself shouldn't be a crime.

    I don't see the flaw in the logic. Most people intuitvely understand that concept. We know that is true in the drugs that are legal (i.e. alcohol, pain pills).

    Not as widespread as in the hood.

    Do you people think that drug addiction is a victimless crime? These people procreate for God's sake! Their families are victims too and guess what? Drug addicts cost the social service system zillions.

    I would approve only with voluntary sterlization. Give us your gonads; and you can smoke all the crack you like.

    then, again, i'll ask you; how many coke heads have you ever dealt with personally lit up like a fucking neon light after a personal 8 ball? And, if you actually have a positive answer maybe you'd like to compare their behaviour to that of a pothead.

    You people? The only non legal drug that I said should be legal is marijuana, and I am well acquainted with drug addiction, I have 2 dead brothers, a dead brother in law, and a nephew serving 10 in the penitentiary all thanks to addiction.

    No offense, but that is a very naive answer. drugs are not universally affective and lumping every substance together under the moniker of "drugs" just to tow a political line is dangerous.


    ...and i'm a giant pot head! Who, consequently, HAS seen enough coked out motherfuckers to realize that treating pot smoking the same as coke consumption is crazy on it's face.
