what do you think which is illegal where you live, should be legal?

i think alcohol should be legal at 16 (im 19 and legal age ps)
at the age 16 if you want to get alcohol you will get it, instead of forcing 16 years old to talk to sketch ppl from school to buy it for them, they should be able to buy it safely at teh liquor store.

also you can legally kill yourself in war here at 18, or 16 with parental consent, yet you cannot enjoy a beer until your 19.

I find it strange that in the UK you can have sex at 16 but can't buy porn until you're 18.

Yep, we all have to wear blindfolds in bed until we're 18.

Parental consent, that makes sense

Cannabis should be decriminalised, and there should be a maximum wage aswell as a minimum.

We should **** the monarchy off too, the royal family have a huge income, palaces, servants, everything they want, and how did they get the job? By popping out the vagina of another royal.

This, except all drugs, and legalised rather than decriminalised.

Decriminalized =/= Legalised.

If you already knew that then why did choose decriminalisation, out of interest?

It doesn't really matter if it's legal or not. It's the damn looks you get from people that's the worst in my opinion. Just wanted to smoke pot with my friend, instead spent the whole day sketching at looks i was getting from people in cars. Even if you're not doing anything wrong you get those friggen looks. Anyway, 'nuff emo teenage BS from me.

Possibly because international law makes proper legalisation impossible IIRC.

All drugs should be legal from any age. It's not my place to tell ya what to do.


I'm also against road laws, there should be no road laws it would be much more interesting if everyone was allowed to drive as they wish and it would make for better entertainment.

Because declassification would be worth it, even if it wasn't legalised. Or legalisation of some strains, and not the really strong shit.

This is very true. Though like Ur all shit said it should be all drugs as opposed to just a select few imo. And I think paedophilia shouldn't be as set in stone, for instance a 16 year old and a 15 year old both consenting with eachother should be legal (I guess that might sound a bit mental to some people). Well to be honest, I think most absolute laws should be reconsidered.

That is absolutely the worst idea I have ever read. So once I have risen to the highest payscale I no longer have anywhere to advance without getting a second job? Where's the incentive to work hard or create new products?

So... The thread title does not specify whether we're talking about national or international law. Besides if the US legalised it federally the world would follow almost certainly.
Quote by rabidguitarist

It's been proven again and again that people are more likely to use drugs if they're illegal. When the Netherlands legalised (OK technically that was decriminalisation, but whatever) there was a short increase in use followed by a deacrease to the point where less people are using now its legal than when it was illegal. Same thing happened when they did this with all drugs in portugal. Same thing happened when alcohol prohibition ended in america. I could go on and on.

If only some strains were illegal they would be the ones which everybody would want to go after. Besides making only some strains illegal would be totally impractical. What happens if someone breeds an illegal strain with a legal strain?


Also your music fucking rocks.

Problem with that is, there are already plenty of 16 year olds who can get into bars and night clubs and get served. If they drop the age to 16 then theres going to be a lot of 14 and 15 year olds who look 16 and will be able to get into bars and night clubs. As well as more drunken radgies on the streets causing shit because they can get a hold of alcohol easier.
The plan was to drink until the pain over.
But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

When you typed that did you really believe it or was that just the standard socialist answer?

Ask most people what drives them to aspire to create in a free market and I guarantee most do it for the money and creating a better life for their families.

I said that because some people make a stupid amount of money. Setting a flat rate is a fair way to solve that problem, instead of knocking on footballers' doors and saying 'yeah, we've cut your income by 95% and we're giving it to someone who doesn't have a house or clean water'.

I'm sure you're going to come up with some ignorant pro-capitalism argument when I say this, but I've always thought that we should give money to people who have to fight to survive, not inject it into the petrol tanks and veins of people who have everything they need.

Why would you possibly need to advance? Have these people not ****ed over the working classes enough that they need to continue on this insane greed filled money grabbing rampage? And who gets into a field like engineering (or any field that creates new products) for money?

If you try and fail they'll have someone to watch you to make sure you don't try again a lot of the time, it's a ridiculous regulation of freedom and you're correct that it has no basis in practicality.
