    The following post contains evidence for why conservatives should support Cannabis legalization.

    If you are an individual that does not value freedom, responsibility, liberty, and logic; please leave the thread now.

    Have you ever had your front door knocked down by 20 men with assault rifles who then proceed to murder your family pets?

    This family, and many others have lived through such a tragedy.

    In the other countries that have legalized cannabis the following took place...

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7FshBjkS6U[/ame]

    Overall usage DROPPED. (It stops being edgy when you have to buy it from Walmart & get carded...)

    Violence plummeted. (Criminals have no recourse when the profit motive is swept out from underneath

    them)

    ~~

    Ask yourself the following questions...

    Which is more likely to result in violence?

    A group of people drinking alcohol, or a group of people smoking cannabis?

    When was the last time you saw bootleggers shooting each other?

    Why do drug dealers deal drugs? = The profit motive...

    Why don't drug dealers deal alcohol? = The profit motive is gone...

    If you can't win a war on drugs in a prison... where do you think you're going to win it?

    ~~

    If all the logic and reasoning above aren't enough to convince you to take back your personal liberty... then perhaps I should direct you to a more emotional explanation...

    We can spot the board junkies but their constant begging.... for support. Look, you want to feed your stupid addiction, have at it. I will do nothing to help or hinder you. Just don't look to the rest of the country to pay for your medical problems. Mmmmk?

    REAL conservatives have ALWAYS supported the decriminalization of drugs.

    Its those fake conservatives (those who usually identify themselves as socially conservative) who have been supporting the War on Americans (they don't like).

    The number 1 drug abuse problem here in Maine is NOT hemp, it's OXICOTIN.

    And the people getting this adictive drug are mostly getting them from their DOCTORS.

    if it's oxy now, it'll be heroin as soon as enough addicts cycle through detox and find out how much cheaper it is than oxy. sad but true.

    and the saddest part is, the majority of them will be young people.

    Truly complex topic as the 'war on drugs' was and is a failure. But those who oppose legalization should think of the waste in crime and imprisonment, the money illegal drugs give to gangs and criminals, and the fact, the well to do get them from the doctor while the poor support the corner pusher. Smoking and alcohol are drugs as well and prove slippery slope arguments are just words.
