State Politics & The War On Drugs: USSC A Solution?

Discussion in 'Politics' started by Silhouette, Oct 26, 2017.

?

Should California's overproduction of pot for assumed-export be tolerated?

  1. No. We have federal eradication money going to Mexico to stem the tide at those borders too.

  2. Yes. Weed is inevitable. Other states will just have to live with California's influences.

    No, the question is "How much prohibition under regulation" when talking about the Commerce Clause. Regulation implies prohibition under its umbrella of authority.

    No, it doesn't. The Power delegated is, "To regulate Commerce". How much regulation goes on in the black market?

    The right wing is simply condoning sloth in government, under the guise of "morals".

    So when you regulate trade, according to the willful-idiot danielpalos, you aren't allowed to prohibit certain types of trade. Define "regulation" under those parameters for me daniel. Is it "the power to suggest"? Or "the power to enforce"?

    To Regulate Commerce means to enact "tape of color" as regulations.

    To Regulate Commerce means to "make Commerce regular", not to abolish Commerce.

    And to make Commerce regular, that means to enforce that regularity across all the states, yes? And if it's illegal in some states to produce and sell pot, heroin, etc. then all states must abide by that regularity.

    To establish regularity means that those attempting to step outside that regularity are... *drum roll* PROHIBITED from doing so. :popcorn:

    Can you cite a drug war clause in our Constitution of limited powers, delegated to our federal Congress?

    Pot, cannabis, should be deregulated and sold like alcohol and tobacco.

    RE: other hard drugs, meth, opiates etc. When I hear libertarians and liberals talk about how deregulating these substances would just solve the "drug war" problem -- I believe they are talking out of their ass and have no clue about chemical addiction, and the massive collateral damage that goes on with every addict.

    Also, the notion of a "non-violent" drug crime is mostly b.s. too. Unless you're talking about a person who grows pot for personal use only. People don't understand the amount of violence done to the human body with the habitual use of meth and opiates. If you're selling or smuggling meth or heroin, just because you don't carry a gun, you're still involved in an extremely violent crime.

    Legalization means, better drugs at potentially lower cost.
