Marijuana should be legalized. It's natural and also, it isn't too dangerous as heavy drugs like cocaine or heroin. You can't die by overdose of marijuana. Their effects aren't too heavy.Heavy DRUGS (I call this simply drugs, cuz for me marijuana isn't a drug) shouldn't be legalized. Too addictive, too dangerous for health.I'd love to make a more complete post, by my english is too limited.I'm a regular consumer of marijuana and cocaine, also tested other kind of drugs.
you do cocaine? are you like addicted?
mmm when I was younger yes, but now no xD But is too addictive, really hard to control once you are in that.
Stay away from that shit it brings no good.
Did you do cocaine or any kind of drugs?
In my opinion, cocaine and alcohol is the same, so as heroine and cafeine, cannabis and nicotine. My point is, all drugs should be legalized but in the same way as alcohol, cafeine and nicotine are legal. In my opinion, there is no problem with drugs until they involves external factors. It's the same thing, driving while being stoned and drunk, both involves dangers that involves the driver's safety and people near the driver safety.
Depends what drugs really,If softdrugs like weed i think you should,it doesnt bring harmBut hardrugs like cocaine and heroin thats fucked up that should be destroyed
They aren't the same. First of all, nicotine and alcohol are socially accepted. The only thing that you can associate nicotine with drugs, is that is too addictive. Doesn't alter the nervous system like really drugs.
You guys need to think about the social factor. Ok we legalize it, but people ALREADY know that drugs are bad for their health and whoever consumes it gets a little distanced from their friends because of the long social cliche 'that dude likes to smoke weed, we shouldn't hang a lot with him' or 'that dude still injecting heroin, he wont even do it okay'. The social factor is strong in cases like this. Some people like to assume that as soon as you legalize drugs, people will start to consume it really fast. If people would like it to consume it that bad, then why don't they buy it ilegally? Of course, they think that's dangerous but they also think that it's not worth it.I'm pretty happy with all your replies, thanks for the help. Keep coming replies like that.
Maybe not for the individual, but for society for society as a whole, at least in the Americas.Hear me out here. I'm not talking about "soft" drugs like good ol' Mary Jane. I think that cannabis is a pretty benign drug in general because it has a lower risk of abuse than many that of the ones that are currently legal (alcohol especially) and is less addictive. No, I'm talking about the hard "recreational" drugs, like opiates, cocaine, LSD, and heroin.You see, one of the most damaging effects of illegal drugs isn't the fact that people use them, it's the drug cartels and drugs lords that kill people and make a killing off of their illicit "business practices". Part of Mexico and other areas of Latin America are more or less taken over by these cartels and drug gangs are a major cause of violence in America. If you were to legalize (and restrict, for sanity's sake) drugs like cocaine and heroin, that would make it so that it can be produced in the states and there wouldn't be a need for nearly as much of an illicit trade, if at all in some cases. This would cut off the money that drug cartels are receiving and reduce their power both domestically and south of the American border. It wouldn't be as much of an issue for European countries because they don't have that enormous drug trade from areas so close to home, so I don't see as much of a point over there.People are going to use illicit recreational drugs regardless of whether or not it's legal -- and we should be doing more to help and rehabilitate those who are caught up in the cycle than just throw them in jail on felony charges for them to get raped in our overcrowded prisons. If we don't make it illegal to simply use those drugs, then I'd imagine people would be a bit more willing to seek help, as they'll know they won't get thrown in a cell just for looking for it.While legalizing drugs seems like an awful idea on the surface, I honestly think that just about anything is preferable to the current system we use to deal with drugs in the United States especially. The drug trade is responsible for a lot of organized crime and Lord knows we could use less of that in the world. While I'm sure doing this would be effectively impossible because of the legislation that would have to be passed time and time again, I think it's at least preferable to the system we currently have in place, as the only way to stop the "war on drugs" would be to remove the demand. But I'm also thinking about this from more of a political aspect than a social one, and I'd imagine that social ramifications could be a lot worse than I'm making it out to be. Still, I think my hypothesis is at least food for thought.
Why do people start consuming it anyways? Even if they feel better, everyone knows it's the worst you can do.
If you want to regulate people's freedom for their safety then the next step is to fight the war on obesity and start making cheeseburgers illegal. The 12 reasons why drugs should be legalized:http://www.bmstahoe.com/Drugs/
People who loved cheeseburgers won't kill for it like people who loved heroin xDI liked the link, those are the reasons why drugs should be legalized. But remember that there are also reasons why the shouldn't.
