Like the title says. Do you think any drugs other than weed should be legal?

When someone gives me an argument and reason other then "so I can smoke shit out of them", I'll say yes.

Until then, I don't care.

Every drug should be legalised. They would be safer if they were legal, it would stop the retarded 'war on drugs' and it would remove the main problem surrounding drugs - the dealers.

Lol only cause drugs actually do good things right?, like heroine?, or cocaine? there good for you right. No we shouldn't legalize drugs there awful things. this is the stupidest question iv ever heard

I'm a liberal jackass who thinks people can kill themselves with heroin or cocaine or shrink their testicles with anabolic steroids and stuff if they want, and I think it's only fair considering that alcohol and tobacco is legal. There should be some restrictions on use, like how there is with public intoxication and not selling booze to people under 21 and stuff, although I think 16 - 18 is a good age limit. If kids want drugs, ciggarettes or beer, they're getting drugs, ciggarettes, or beer.

btw, aren't there a lot of threads like this?

I don't have a problem with marijuana being legalized, but some of the other drugs can be... ****ed up to say the least.

So maybe some others, like the natural ones such as shrooms, but definitely not all of them.

it would also cause a huge surge in people becoming addicted to drugs which would be a massive disaster for society as a whole. Certain drugs are known to destroy people's minds and memories, making those widely available is not good for any society.

Yes, but only because the so-called "war on drugs" is costly and a waste of money.

---Speculation, I have nothing to back this up, nor do I claim to.---

I get the feeling that many people who say those drugs should be legalized do so only so they can take them without worrying about getting in trouble with the law.

---End speculation---

EDIT: And I would be in favor of some restrictions, like age limits, public intoxication laws, crimes committed while under the influence (although those two latter already exist... you'd just get rid of the "illegal" substance part), etc.

I'd say shrooms should be too. After that.. no, because of addictive properties of the drugs.

Many drugs are very dangerous, so no

and pot should be decriminalized, not legalized


I think we have our different opinions on that. It is decriminalized here, but it still dosen't change much.

Legalization would be huge for getting the government out of the economy crisis. If you taxed it like cigarettes, wouldn't you just have another way to make as much money as cigs.

I'm an anti-hard drugs sort of person, because I think they are unhealthy. But I also don't care if someone uses them. It's none of my business. However, I don't think all drugs should be legalized, because I don't want to risk having hundreds of children killing themselves or getting addicted to a drug they didn't fully understand simply because it was more widely available.

It was the only task I would undertake...

Could you defend this, and give some kind of justification as to why you think this is? Please take a minute to look at some of the statistics from the Netherlands and Spain in regard to how drug legalization or decriminalisation correlate with addiction.

Edit: I mean Portugal, not Spain. Easy mistake to make

Speaking as someone who has experience with most types of drug, but who does not have an addictive personality, and has NEVER been dependant on a substance ('cept maybe caffiene!), I can truly say that past all the hype, all the warnings, all the horror stories; it's nothing like they make it out to be.

That being said, not everyone has the strength of will and presence of mind to avoid becoming ensnared in a downward spiral of dependance. A lot of you also don't have the common sense to avoid such situations either, and it takes great moral fibre to admit and combat a problem once you actually develop one.

It should be a personal choice, but just think - can you handle it, or will you be a burden on the medical system for a decade after accidentally getting hooked?

there's many pros and cons about the legalization / decriminalization debate

i feel it would be better decriminalized, but thats my opinion, as you have yours

Im just pissed cause Arizona was this close to having decriminalized weed, but our politicians were too chickenshit to stick it to the gov

Actually, there have been several studies done in Sweden regarding the legalization of heroin.

In almost all of the studies the amount of people who start heroin went down, the amount of people quitting went up and the socio-economic standing of those addicts allowed to access the drug in an economically fair/safe environment went up.

I'm not even going to go into detail on my opinion here.. The whole legal system when it comes to alcohol/drugs is completely ****ed. Alcohol is legal, yet it kills people and brings out the worst. Yet pot is for the most part illegal.

Now think about the last time you heard about someone going on a stoner rage and beat his wife? and the last time you heard someone doing the same on a drunken rage?

Don't you think alcohol would be illegal if we could make it that way? I'm pretty sure we tried that once. Didn't end too well.

I'd much rather see pot legalized and alcohol made illegal again, but it's not going to happen so easily.

Yup, I can respect that. I just have had it non decriminalized and then decriminalized, so I know the effects first hand. Nothing changes when it's decrimed except if you have like 2 g's you only get a fine. Here that's all they would do before, they don't want to waste time on people who just smoke it. They're after dealers/growers who would be busted either way.

Honestly, in a perfect world, all drugs ought to be legalized. But let's face it, there are way too many dumbasses, **** ups and idiots in the world to be responsible with these drugs.
