OK - It's been a real long time since I've smoked out, mainly due to health reason and because being a Father I can't allow my life to get jacked up for being busted with a doobie, it's just not worth it to me.
I don't care if you rot your teeth out doing meth, I care about when you come out of your house to stick me up for money for it. People of low moral fiber are probley not helped by drugs, but McDonald's extra large, large, large size value meal doesn't help people with portion control problems, where is the War on Big Macs? People with weak morals will eventually find a way to jack themselves up anyway. Trying to blame a plant for holes you have in your psychological make up is a non-starter, your a tool to begin with.
***DISCLAIMER*** Ron Paul is running for President and if don't agree with him on several levels, I understand but I just can't fathom how you can't agree with this:
Many will have the knee-jerk reaction of wanting to see more of a crackdown on illegal drugs. But I have to ask: Haven't we been cracking down on drugs for several decades only to see the black market flourish and the violence escalate? Could there be a more effective approach?
The illegality of drugs is, in fact, the Number One factor that keeps profits up for dealers and cartels, and ensures that organized crime dominates the market.
Cocaine, for example, has about a 17,000-percent markup and sells for more than gold in some areas. This is nothing new or unique to drugs, but a predictable outcome of prohibition.
