"Oh wait, you're implying that the only drugs that can destroy families are the ones that our guardians have deemed illegal, "
No. We are talking about the illegal drugs so that is what I commented on. Stay in focus.
"If adults of normal intelligence CHOOSE to take cocaine, and then get addicted, and ruin their lives, I could care less."
No comment required.
"actually gnuber, contrary to what gmtv
seems to have taught you NOT everyone who tries "drugs" instantly becomes hooked and dies, THAT is utter nonsense, why would anyone try it?!?
Yeah kids are so good at making those decisions. From the look of some streets near me I'd must say I'm not optimistic about adult abilities either.
"It takes a bit of effort to develop a dependancy on anything other than the truly addictive (and nasty) stuff like heroin or crack"
Right and Coca fields will still be there, and spreading, to produce crack. Poppy fields for heroin. Drug cartels and distribution networks won't vanish. Carpet bomb'em.
"Hold the phone there sunshine. I'm an avid cocaine user and I'm not a mess."
Wow. Someone who got away without serious consequences (I'm happy to take your word on that. Seriously). So I guess it's ok to legalise so everyone can start 'hoovering it up' without personal or legal consequences. Maybe when they start advertising their products you can start another career as product spokesperson. You know, the cool guy in the ad!
And there was that comment about the environmental impact of the Abrams Tank? Typical & WTF.
Pointless discussion really. Those who have dealt with the consequences will feel one way, those who want to party will go the other way... and never the twain shall meet.
I'm outa here.
