I don’t think that legalization of Marijuana is a gateway towards legalization of “hard” drugs, because I’m pretty sure most drugs are already legal, just in different forms and with different names, yet highly regulated.
A link to a link at classical values.
Legalize pot, and in fact legalize most drugs, but regulate it, over time the regulation will be reduced more and more. I find it to be a part of nannyism that doesn’t appeal to me, especially since most everyone I know has smoked pot, a fair few smoke somewhat regularly, and because I’m a drinker and a smoker.
Even those I’ve known who use “harder” drugs don’t express addict like behaviour that I’ve noticed. They act the same way as someone who drinks and went on a bender. Big deal. Arrest them when they ACT in a harmful way, but if the only person that MIGHT be harmed is themselves, then leave it be.
I should include that my bad habits, are in fact bad habits, and should be approached as the risky behavior that they are, as should smoking pot and other recreational drug use. If you take it to extremes, that’s on you, and there is noone else to blame.
