Yep, let's legalize drugs...

    The people who scream the loudest for decriminalization are the furthest from having to deal with it.

    Those on here who scream about the legalization of drugs and how it is unconstitutional have never had to tell parents that their 17 YO daughter overdosed and was found dead in a Walmart bathroom.

    and yet it would happen weather its legal or not. just because some people don't know how to handle their sh** doesn't mean others should be punished who want to do drugs responsibly and recreationally and yet to allow cigarettes and alcohol is complete hypocrisy. same can be said with guns just because their are people who don't know howto properly handle guns doesn't mean everyone should be punished.

    and just to clear the air i don't use drugs.. anymore, however i think responsible adults should be able to do as they please with in moderation. some people just can't use moderation and it's no one's fault but their own.

    I'm not fully convinced heroin and meth are "recreational" but I digress.

    To what extent is your experience with drugs and/or their users?

    Where I work there is an enormous heroin problem. As such, just about every person I arrest for a theft crime or in a stolen car or RSP is an addict. An addict will steal your stuff and forget about it by the time that plunger hits.

    Only in a utopian world. That's along the same lines of "if there were no guns we'd have no more murders".

    I really wish folks would have more personal responsibility, unfortunately the majority of our citizens lack that.

    while in high school and some years after i smoked copious amounts of Marijuana. and about 5-6 years after high school i decided i wanted to try coke once just for experimentation purposes and that's what i did tried it once and that was it. i would like to try some hallucinogens. as of right now though i'm stone sober haven't done anything in a few years and that includes alcohol just never been a fan of it. as for herion and meth yes its destructive and anything synthesized i don't agree people should be doing however when it would come to legalization i don't think its fair to cherry pick weather you agree with it or not.

    anyone over 21 just like with alcohol. at least if they where taxed and regulated we would be making some money and it would be harder for kids to get it. right now its so easy for them to pick whatever they want off the street.

    Prohibition didn't stop those idiots.

    Now how many people here would be smoking meth if only it were legal?

    i mean don't get me wrong i have great respect for LEOs
    i just find it a bummer that the people who are responsible who would like to do drugs recreationally have to feel like criminals.

    none unless they are already into it i don't think anyone on a whim is going to be like "hey i think ill do some heroin or meth" who have never been into it before.

    You do understand that heroin, Meth, crack and powerful prescription drugs are hardly ever used recreationally?

    They're not called methheads, crackheads and pill heads for nothing.

    yes well some people can show greater restraint then others, obviously the vast majority can't with those types of drugs. i have never used or had the desire to try those personally, however like i said earlier when it comes to legalization or even decriminalization it wouldn't be fair to cherry pick. weather i agree with them or not. i'm more about the non narcotics. but to each their own. people are going to do what they want to do.

    Serious crime in this country has been cut like 40%. One of the reasons this happened is that we are putting more folks in jail for longer periods. Many of them, if not most, were drug users/dealers.
