Agree 100%
Legalize everything and tax it. Use the tax money generated for rehab and safe houses for for drug users.

Crakr:
"Yes, it has. Most people follow the law and do not wish to face the consequences of breaking it, thus they stay sober."
When was the last time you heard a person say "I'd like to smoke this weed but darn it, it's illegal so i cant.
Cigarettes are legal. What's the ratio of people you know that smoke vs don't smoke?

Drugs corrupt the individual. Criminalization corrupts society.

If you live in the US, please register as a Republican just so you can give Ron Paul a shot at the presidency.

Speaking of rule of law: Notice how prohibition 2.0 (or war on drugs for that matter) was legalized with NO CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT!

social chaos that the legalization of all drugs would cause



We have utter social chaos BECAUSE of criminalization. Like the kind patchgrabber just mentioned. Meanwhile it'$ co$ting the taxpayer $eriou$ money.

We still shouldn't have border clashes again between our individual UNITED STATES


Yes we're the "United States" that doesn't mean we're united in the messianic sense.

we don't need higher levels of addiction


Legalization does not automatically mean more addiction. As a matter of fact it will encourage more people to admit they have a problem.

we certainly don't need the decline in morality


Prohibition itself causes a decline in morality. Our recent history from late 19th century (and even earlier) is riddled with snowballing effects of failed prohibition attempts leading to stricter laws and repeating. The unattended consequences of which include corruption, degradation of the rule of law, and loss of liberty.

"we don't need higher levels of addiction, and we certainly don't need the decline in morality or the social chaos that the legalization of all drugs would cause."

Speculation at best. So your alternative is to continue with overcrowded prisons, unregulated and unsafe drugs, drug turf wars, dealers hanging around playgrounds, etc.?

Your baseless "arguments" amount to nothing more than fear-mongering. Last time I checked everyone in the Netherlands was not addicted to drugs like marijuana and heroine, even though they favour a harm-reduction model instead of an imprisonment model for casual use.

We don't need freeway auto chases across state lines, we don't need higher levels of addiction, and we certainly don't need the decline in morality or the social chaos that the legalization of all drugs would cause.

Ron Paul. Honest, not bought by bankers or corporations. But you wont elect him because he is christian, against abortion (even though he would not federally legislate against it), doesn't believe in evolution.

Never mind that these things would not effect his policy because he believes the power rests with the people.

Last best hope for this country. All he does is speak truth, with reason and rationality. Yet he is berated and called crazy.

I would've voted for him if the average Americans are rational, educated and moderate (Hint: They are not). The people simply don't know how to use the freedom they have; so it's better not to give them that power at all.

Damage to our economy? Really? You don't understand economies much do you?

Before you parade your ignorance on this subject, maybe you should learn to use a search engine.

If there is one state that legalizes drugs and one next to it that doesn't then you have a 'bootlegging' problem that causes problems at the states borders, remember we once had a civil war over states that disagreed about what was legal and not, like that.


Be that as it may we don't have the problem with organized crime related to alcohol like we do now. We do have that problem with many controlled substances.
Also I believe Archer explains why your Civil War analogy is oversimplified.

"If prostitution was legal, would sex traffickers still be considered criminals? How would one prosecute pimps taking unwilling "products"?"

Whoah wtf?? Legalizing PROSTITUTION does not equal legalizing KIDNAPPING, RAPE, or VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN (and a few men). It allows a victim of sex trafficking or abuse from pimps/customers to go to the police without slamming them self into a jail cell (which is what keeps them from going to the authorities).

Most times when Ron Paul opens his mouth, it makes it harder and harder for me to support the guy. This was not one of those times; brownie points to you, Dr. Paul.

@CrakrJak: I think Paul is saying that no state or the federal government shouldn't HAVE THE POWER to outlaw drugs. Also, I think the Civil War was a little more complicated than that: contrary to popular belief, Lincoln didn't believe that the president had the power to abolish slavery and he fully intended to keep slavery where it was. The Southern states didn't recognize the authority of the federal government--they thought that states had the right to govern themselves.

So, really, both problems are solved if the power to outlaw drugs is taken away.

If that were true we would see a decline, in usage. Instead we see none or an INCREASE in usage.

"...lacking a moral compass and cause a demand for illicit drugs."

Who says all illegal drugs are immoral? I'd say cigarettes are more immoral than marijuana, but they're ok because they're legal, also not to mention that alcohol causes more personal violence than any of the illegal drugs combined.
