I think all drugs should be legalized.

The only problem with that would be corporations trying to advertise to kids and poo like that. That`s what the government is supposed to be for. To stop stupid poo like that from happening. If people are educated about what certain drugs do to you, how many do you think will actually want to do them? Most likely just the ones that aren`t worth keeping around anyways.

Oh, yeah, but just for marijuana, not cocaine.

The world has often trended in a fashion similar to that of Columbia`s progression. I am hopeful!

*pfft* BAAAHAHAHAHA!

Well, that`s all fine and dandy, but like keyrow says, columbia isn`t the only south american country looking at drug law reform. The problem is that there`s a difference between voluntarily surrendering what (arguably small) amount of control a government has over the drug trade, and simply admitting that they never had any amount of control to begin with. This falls into the latter category.

"as soon as it is legalized i bet productivity will go down the drain"

If you think Colombia`s policy is a breakthrough, you should search a bit about Uruguay`s new drug policy. I know generally americans don`t like when the State controls the production, but basically now every marijuana farm is run by the government, and they can ensure its a high quality product and that each uruguayan citizen will consume a small amount of pot per month.

@TheGuySmiley: Alcohol is perfectly legal, yet cops and doctors aren`t drunk all the time. Where is your logic?

as soon as it`s legalized i bet prodcutivity will go down the drain. imagine crossing the cross walk and a cop car smashes into you, and paralyzes you for life. Because the cop was on cloud 9 and didn`t see the flashing crosswalk lights.

Don`t think drugs are good, i`ve seen people do crazy things on drugs. Just like driving through a red light becayse they`re not focused on the road.

Imagine going to the dr and he`s got drug eyes, and he`s about to take out your spleen that day. Do you let him? Sure if you want to risk losing something else.

It`s worth repeating @SteelGrid!

However the inclusion of cocain is a first (I think). While lots of countries (like Canada!) have sort-of decriminalized pot, cocain remains taboo!

However, since Columbia is the Cocain Capital of the planet, it makes a lot of sense...

Very good, now stop making such a fuss because you smoke a bit of weed ... it`s hardly a big deal.

States have decriminalized pot, but not federally. You can still be prosecuted federally iirc.

And yes, this is not the same as legalization, decriminalization of drugs has been going around in certain states since a long time now

Good for them, that`s almost an ounce! Since it`s Columbia, they`ll probably be demonized for it, but if it works then there will be more support for decriminalization or legalization. Also way less people in prison, which is likely why this would never catch on in the US.
