It's a drug that is all harm and zero benefit.


So is an alcoholic beverage, what's your point?

Two kids in Winnipeg ground up the leaves of a common shrub and smoked it. They'd read on the internet it might make them high. It made them sick and they landed in hospital.
Because they'd gotten the leaves from a city park, the City ordered ALL the parks to be cleared of this plant! Nevermind that you can buy it in any greenhous, or even WalMart...

As a side effect? The parks all looked nicer! lolz! They're hardy bushes, but look crappy when they get overgrown.

The moral is: if someone wants to 'get high' they'll find a way. NO amount of rules, laws or punishment will stop them.

Before 1900 (apx) you could buy ANY drug legally! Opium? In baby drops. Cocain? In soda pop. We're still here, eh?

the Police State in the USA. Big Government just wants to take care of us. They must be part of the 1%.

Our government (lib and conservative) has lost the direction of freedom.

I think decriminalization for use and possession is a good middle ground to start from, If you're caught with dope you have it confiscated and you receive a fine.
it makes no sense to send a person to jail for an addiction,being an alcoholic is not a crime. Full legalization though? I've never thought that was a responsible solution either.

I'm confused on many levels, how is this related to Breaking Bad? Is the caption writer suggesting we legalize meth? It's a drug that is all harm and zero benefit.

Secondly, legalizing drugs in general is not going to make their abuse or trafficking go down. Look at all the legal, regulated drugs like vicodin, oxycodone, etc. they are still sold underground and abused.

Lastly, it's unlikely that legalization would make the DEA smaller if we're still regulating it. Might change how they work, maybe morph into something like an agency that tracks all prescriptions and busts people that are selling their pills.

Then how do we penalize those people? Send them to jail? But this was supposed to eliminate that.

The *only* way a "legalize drugs" experiment is going to make all possession/underground/gang/dealing activity irrelevant is to put them all in an aisle at the store. Picture that!

Unemployment rates are bad, but I think we could handle a bit more... the DEA, the DOE, the EPA...

I'd have been interested to see if a bottle of Polar Pure had turned up in someone's meth lab. Safe to say the answer to that is probably no. But I think that's a question I'd be asking the government if I was in that couple's position.

I'm with you, Tacos. They're legal, though, they're just behind-the-counter. At least they are where I live. Obviously people are still making meth, and they and others will find ways around such stupid crap as making Sudafed harder to get.

Portugal decriminalized drug use over a decade ago. They had extremely high drug usage rates and realized that their war on drugs wasn't working either. Sound familiar?

Instead they focus on education and addiction treatment(which is far cheaper than putting the addicts in prison for years). When they catch somebody who has drugs on them, they send them to a court with psychologists who then determine the best treatment for them and they can choose to follow the treatment plan or they can just walk free then and there. Since then their drug usage rates have dropped by half while ours continue to skyrocket.

They're not just "collateral damage," they're "ACCEPTABLE collateral damage."

Or is that common sense approach politically incorrect?


The whole notion of prosecuting drug dealers is absolutely antithetical to liberty. A drug user is NOT a victim he is a volunteer.

So... You want to legalize methamphetamine? How's about we just rein in our federal government instead? Oh, and prosecute the upper echelon drug manufacturers/distributors instead of granting them immunity? And if caught and successfully prosecuted/tried/convicted, we don't send them to clubfed, we send them to do herd time, and all of their g*d d*mn time- in solitary confinement?

Less government=more freedom=more prosperity.

Sickens me to see suits in DC imposing more and more ridiculous regulations just to make somebody's government job easier.
