I know this thread has kind of been done before, but the last one only talks of the legalization of meth. I'm sure many people jumped to "aww heeeeell naw!" when they saw that because meth is derp, and voted accordingly on the poll, myself included, even though I am of the opinion that all drugs should be legalized.

Not sure if I agree with Legalizing drugs.

Yes they are enjoyable, yes people take them. But think about it. If we legalized it, wouldn't drug dealers go out of business if places started stocking say ten grams of cannabis for less than the dealers were.

But it would create jobs, so I guess that's a plus.

Some. Meth is bad, but stuff like marijuana I have no problem with. Why would anyone seriously choose "all or none?"

Even then, many prescribed drugs are just as addictive as illegal ones.

All drugs should be legal on a civil liberties basis.

This. While I wouldn't do them, who am I to say someone else can't? The act of owning and using drugs in and of it's self is a victimless crime, and this "war on drugs" is a waste of taxpayer dollars around the world.

Methamphetamine is legal...just not when it's illegally manufactured. They do rarely prescribe it for extreme cases of obesity and ADHD. It's a schedule II drug, along with cocaine. While most hallucinogens are in schedule I, including marijuana, and generally present no addictive potential or physical harm to the user. The risks for hallucinogens are all psychological. Heroin is also schedule I due to its 'extreme addictive potential', which could also be said for methamphetamine...but our government's ****ing stupid.

It really is a civil rights issue, nonviolent drug offenders should not be given such harsh sentences for possession of small amounts of drugs (small amounts meaning there really isn't enough to sell, so that's open to opinion).

I'm more or less in favour that all drugs should be legalised, controlled, taxed, regulated and made safe for public consumption. I'd like to think my government is sensible enough to acknowledge that maybe people might actually enjoy getting high once in a while, and might do something to make it safer for people to do so rather than to just stick its fingers in its ears and pretend it's not happening.

I dont do drugs but they should be legalised because the government shouldnt have the authority to tell people what to do with their bodies, especially since alcohol and tabacoo are legal... Kinda hypocritical. I am aware of their dangers, but to be informed is to be forwarned.

Why ?

Meths said it best I think:
Quote by Meths
1)Regulation. Illegal drugs are cut with all kinds of ****. Legalised drugs would be regulated and so wouldn't be full of crap. This makes them much, much safer for use. The impurities in drugs are harmful and cause (extra) damage. Varying levels of concentration are also to blame for lots of OD's.

2)Tax. Speaks for itself. Alcohol and tobacco more than make up in tax revenue what they cost the NHS. Something like ?2 billion a year in cost, ?6 billion a year in tax revenue. There is no reason why illegal drugs would be different.

3)Saves money. The War on Drugs is astronomically expensive and the police can focus time, money and effort on catching real criminals rather than pursuing addicts.

4)There is no reason to believe it will increase the number of users. In the UK when weed was re-classified to C instead of B, the number of users fell from 11% to 8%. In Holland, weed usage fell after its decriminalisation. In Geneva a test program where heroin users were given safe drugs and a place to do it in caused the number of new users to fall by 80%. If you ask someone why they don't do crack it's usually because they don't want to be a crackhead, not because the police might lock them up.

5)Lowers crime. I don't just mean drug possession/dealing. Drug dealing gangs are responsible for huge amounts of crime. Cutting out a major source of their income will cut crime.

6)Drug barons go bust/legit. Drug barons aren't nice people. This would put the money into the hands of CEO's instead. Not a huge improvement I must say but most CEO's aren't quite as bad as drug barons. Either that or drug barons will go legit. Not an ideal solution but still cuts crime.

7)Free up prison space. The UK prison system is dangerously overcrowded and the less said about the size of the US prison system the better. Suffice to say that there will be far more room in prisons when we stop locking people up for having an addiction.

8)Hypocrisy. There is no reason why tobacco and alcohol should be legal and acceptable and other drugs shouldn't be. Far more people are killed by those two. Far more violence is caused by alcohol. Etc etc. It doesn't make sense and tradition is not a reason for anything.

9)Cheaper. If drugs are legal then they'd be cheaper (even when taxed). This would mean that drug addicts wouldn't have to steal (or would have to steal less) to obtain drugs. Lots of crime is caused by this and getting rid of it sounds good.

10)People will be less afraid of getting help for their addictions and will make it easier for people to get into rehab or whatever. As it stands, it's kind of awkward given the illegal status of drugs. It's easier to quit tobacco and alcohol because you can get lots of help from the NHS and lots of other charities. Illegal drugs don't have this.

11)Freedom. Even without the other 10 reasons (which IMO are more than enough to warrant legalisation) I would still advocate legalisation for the very simple reason that it is the not the government's place to tell me what I can do to myself for my own enjoyment. I can slice a razorblade across my arm, why I can't I stick a syringe full of heroin in? It seems ridiculous that there are actually chemicals which are banned. A somewhat backwards view for the 21st century.

oh boy... uhh marijuana isnt a hallucinogen. their are no psychoactive compounds in marijuana. no amount of marijuana can make you hallucinate.

IMO it all depends on where you think the line should be drawn. If you believe telling people what they can or cant do in a victimless situation violates their civil liberties then thats one position. However if you want to draw the line at good vs bad drugs such as marijuana vs meth, then tobacco should be made illegal. Its not a may its a will cause cancer. If you use tobacco long enough no matter how long your body fights it off you will eventually develop cancerous cells and it will probably kill you.

No other drug guarantees death from long term use. And because their are a certain level of toxins (even though its a low amount) it is technically possible to overdose and die.

Marijuana should be the primary smoking herb, but i doubt i need to elaborate about marijuana to a bunch of musicians

If you want things to be changed do something about it. sign petitions, write letters, make phone calls.

We shouldn't ban people from doing things that are bad for them. It is none of the government's business what a citizen puts into their bodies.

I love how meth's blog is still being referenced after all these years.

All drugs should be legalized and regulated solely on the fact that having them illegal and enforcing prohibition is a horribly inefficient use of resources and tax payers money if the aim is to minimize harms associated with drug use and even reduce overall drug consumption. Studies indicate that 1) Treatment saves 5 times the cost of prohibition to yield similar results and 2)Changes in drug legislation have not caused a decrease in drug consumption.

It is then obvious that prohibition continues merely as an abuse on freedom of media and consciousness.

Most problems with drugs are related to them being illegal.
Legalize drugs, regulate them, educate people about them, have harsh sentences for people breaking drug laws (under the influence at the workplace, driving, illegal dealing, etc) and the situation will improve.

I'm not particularly into drugs and I think this would be a great idea.

Hallucinogens refers to a broad category of drugs which include psychedelics, dissociatives, and deleriants. Though THC (the most prominent psychoactive compound in cannabis) and it's derivatives are most often classified to a separate classification reserved for cannabinoids, smoking cannabis does produce a mild psychedelic affect. For that reason, cannabis can be considered to be a member of the hallucinogens even though hallucinations related to cannabis use are extremely rare.

Because they have the radical idea that people should be allowed to do what they want with their own bodies.

decriminalize all, legalize all under certain psychiatric prescriptions/doctor's notes, make the class Cs legal and sold in pharmacies/distributed in bars. not for heroin being sold next to the paracetamol in pharmacies tho

Clearly that wasn't the end of the thread. Are you new to these things? That's fine, you'll get the hang of it.


Plus, drugs should be legal because of the violence and corruption created by the black market emerging from their criminalization. That is the reason. Not theoretical ravings about childish fictions.
