It's not the drugs or the drug users. It's the drug war.

Bureaucrats create a problem, then they get to create the solution by growing government, and usurping power from we the people, that is not delegated by the Constitution. It's what they do.

How'd that "Scared Straight" crap work out?

One issue with this meth scare campaign is: if you lie about the dangers of MJ, kids will assume you lie about the dangers of meth. Better stop lying, so you're believed when you actually do tell the truth.

Money has long struggled with substance abuse, and been honest about it. He was heavy into drugs in the 70's & 80's, and admitted to being "hooked on marijuana" at one time.

I think this is why he left/got fired from the NYPD and became a singer. HH

Scrolling through these is brutal!
That doesn't look too bad. Cut his hair, went on a diet.

Although, I don't agree with making it illegal. Grown ups can make their own informed decisions as to what they will or will not put into their bodies.
How about organic meth? Is that any better?

I don't think being synthetic is the problem, it's the grade. Pharm. grade meth is/was used by the USAF to keep pilots awake, IIRC. HH

It is still used medically.

Desoxyn

Good luck finding a doc willing to take the risk of writing it though.

So he was hooked on marijuana and now he's not hooked? If he was hooked how can he be unhooked? He quit?

If he was hooked how did he quit?

Because making it illegal certainly hasn't stopped them from using it?

Murder, theft, assault, DWI, all still illegal, FWIW.
I wonder if there would be more of the above if they were no longer illegal?

2 of those have a victim.

DWI shouldn't be illegal.

I always heard it was a one hit and your hooked drug.

Probably not. One thing the Dutch and Swiss experiments showed was that legalization had no effect on those not inclined to use before. HH

Do you believe Mental Health Commitments should be illegal?
