" If a guy grows marijuana in his backyard and smokes it in his own home, it's definitely a crime. But I can't figure out who the victim is. "
Can you figure out the crime when a meth lab blows up and innocent kids are killed ?
It meth wasn't illicit it wouldn't be cooked in neighborhoods next to elementary schools but in industrial districts with proper safety controls.
You really want to continue this nonsense? Prohibition kills innocent kids!
In fact, I'd wager that those who choose meth wouldn't if the other, more organic compounds weren't so hard to come by.
I won't wager on people's misery, but check out your average meth users. Crack, booze, and coke are more readily available
and often cheaper than meth. Most meth shops are in it for the money ! If you think legalizing it will stop labs, you are sadly mistaken !
Those asholes will cook it anywhere at all. It's all about the money.
There's statistics that show how the fools who smoke pot die regularly from any of a number of toxins delivered by the drug, and even more go on to look for bigger thrills with stronger drugs. It's a waste of time and a waste of life. People who need to live with drugs have compounded life problems in the social are also, like "alternative" lifestyles that cause conflicts with their sexual orientation, financial problems because few,respectable companies would ever hire them, and many of them flat out end up rotting away in prisons where I personally want them.
Get a life. Get off drugs.
Seems to be personal - what happened, did a hippie steal your crush in high school?
You just don't get it. There's nothing special about meth. The "money" they can command is because it's illegal. The only other reason is because it's scarce. The only reason it's scarce is because it's illegal. Same with herb and coca.
Meth... nothing special??? Like the most intense high outside of sex? Highly addictive, therefore. And cocaine is the only drug known that a person habitually uses until death. All the others involve withdrawl. Weed is milquetoast by comparison, but like written many years ago... its a gateway to other more harmful drugs... primarily in that the person selling MJ also sells the more dangerous stuff. So naturally the CEO/drug-dealer psychology states to legalize them all... I want the money, you get the drug. As mentioned earlier, growing/smoking on'es own MJ is perhaps the limit of legalization anytime soon. I am in favor of that: meth, crack, cocaine, heroin, abolutely not. Next thing ya know, oxycontin has to be made legal w/o a perscription. Go ahead, conquer the world selling drugs... there's too mny people to feed now, whats a billion or two fewer?
