What do you folks think about all drugs being legal and why. I say yes but with strict controls. I should say that I don't use drugs, but find the criminalization of drug use counter productive.

Here is what they are doing in Portugal:

I believe several of the psychedelics ought to be, psychedelic therapy under observation with a professional will also be prevalent in the near future.

They didn't make them legal, they decriminalized using them and made it a health care issue.  If you sell them you go to jail.  .I think it is a good idea. Putting drug addicts in jail just drys them out, then they go back to using when they get out.

might as well, all drugs are widely available now, and addicts do not have any problem getting it.  myth that if drugs become legal would lead to many more new addicts has been debunked by reality, in usa and overseas.

let just put it this way, making it illegal did not make them hard to come by, and it has not stop anyone that wanted to to get them.   but it sure there would be no billions spend on wod, and private jail industry would not have as much customers. all of which comes out  of our taxes.

MJ without a doubt should be legal! As for the rest, I'm split. If someone wants the life of a junkie that's their life to live but my problem with that is when the junkie becomes a disruption to others or sits in jail because of their habit while the tax payers pay for the junkies room and board. I guess in the end I have to say no to the rest of the drugs.

I didn't consider this in my post above but I do agree with what you say here. Problem is the person must show responsibility and not everyone can do so.

Fwiw, I have never tried psychedelics but have never been against them either. I have many friends that have numerous times and they all had wonderful experiences.

All drugs should be legal.

Prohibition is a terrible waste of resources, it's been proven time and time again that it does not work. All it does is fuel a massive underground market.

Alcohol is perfectly legal and there aren't millions of raging alcoholics roaming the streets JUST because they can buy booze. I don't understand why anyone would expect a huge increase in hard drug use - if anything, it's easier to buy it from a street dealer because he doesn't ask for ID.

Stop wasting police resources, stop throwing young people in a cage for experimenting with drugs and for God sakes stop with the propaganda!

“These International bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these newspapers to club into submission or drive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government.”

- Roosevelt

I think like many of you that what we have been doing has been a failure. Certainly there is a strong movement to legalize weed and IMO justifiable so. I think alcohol causes far more social and medical problems that weed and as one of the other posters pointed out we don't have an increase of alcoholism, in fact the numbers have remained steady over the years since the repeal of prohibition. People don't typically beat up their girlfriends after smoking a blunt probably because their too busy eating Doritos and watching cartoons but how many times do we here about some guy under the influence of alcohol beating up his family and the cops when they show up. My guess is that the alcohol beverage lobby is working very hard to keep weed and other substances illegal.

I say yes

Any argument you use to say alcohol marijuana and tobacco can be legal can be used for everything else.

As long as paint thinner is legal I could not care about what the world is doing or wanting to do.

Sugar, caffeine, tobacco, and alcohol are all legal. So I think yes, other drugs should be legal too. I think it's more of a question of what kinds of regulations and taxes should be placed upon currently illegal substances than a question of legality in itself.

And not that I'm reading anyone breaking rules in this thread but... Drug use and particularly illegal drugs are specifically mentioned in the site rules- lets not get into stepping over those rules and get the thread shut down please. Let's not cause the mods to get unhappy with us all :)

I don't use drugs but I think of all the tax money that could be earned by the government.   Also less government money would be spent on police and prisons.  This could mean more money is available for schools, senior citizens, etc.

No. Would you honestly want your children/nephews/nieces using drugs?
