in this day and age where its legal for people to drink into oblivion and cost the taxpayer shedloads with policing and hospital care,or its allowed for people to eat crap and have many health problems which again costs bundles.

is it time to legalise all substances.

my view is simply yes.

stats state that all crime ie theft ect the culprit in 60% of crime are doing it to get cash for more gear,in addition its believed every single weekend night over 500,000 are snorting/swallowing drugs.

the goverments of this world could make the stuff fairly safe and very cheap and flog it on ie special premises where persons can obtain their fix/stash.

prohibition simply fails as the streets are laden with cut dodgy gear which users gleefully buy.

after all if anyone wants to do drugs.........why try and stop them.

of course if this ever became legal,schools would have to educate kids from a young age telling them the downfalls of drugs and ramming home the message.

todays clever gangsters have ditched drugs for smuggling booze/fags which is very lucrative but does not carry long jail terms.

I can't remember, what gets me is when people with no actual experience of taking drugs themselves passing judgement.

Or people who can't see the hypocrisy of the legal drugs causing substantially more problems than those that are outlawed and them theselves partaking in consumption of it.

Alcohol must be ok, 'cos its advertised by beautiful people.

I thought most of the Cabinet and Shadow Cabinet had admitted to having tried illegal drugs at one stage or another.

Obviously under the law of the land at the moment (which they all apparently support) they should be criminalised for this and received criminal records.

I think that's a silly argument. That's like saying you should only be a VP if you've been abroad.

Oh.

what if some bod who has never tasted booze in their life suggests to ban and close pubs/clubs ect............is it not the same scenario.
