Drug abuse should be a medical issue not a legal issue except in certain cases like giving them to your kids. But legal products like tobacco and alcohol are already illegal for kids to use - as drugs should be. A lot of money and lives are wasted by keeping drugs illegal. The people who want drugs to stay illegal are conservatives, preachers, drug dealers, politicians, prison contractors, wardens, and law enforcement. They all make money off of it. Not to mention the foreign countries who grow it and ship it here.

Bud, did you insinuate that someone was on drugs because you had such a *good* answer to the point?

No, that is the kind of childish bullshi+ people pull when they've *lost* the argument.

...but lack the brains to notice or the guts to admit it or the character to simply go away and suck your thumb.

Are drugs what make you drool?

No, that is what someone does when they've *lost* the argument.

Hey Bud - remember, just because they may be legal doesn't mean you have to use them. Try using free will.

you have a bit of drool running down your chins

Rand Paul clearly is seeking to move the GOP in a more libertarian direction.  Most recently, he has called for changes to "cookie cutter conservatism," referencing a change in the party's position on drugs (for one example) as a way to attract more young people to the GOP (http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/fox-news-sunday-chris-wallace/2013/03/24/sen-rand-paul-top-congressional-issues-pivotal-moment-battle-over-gay-marriage#p//v/2250608088001).

In theory, libertarian principles often sound great, especially when you're young.  After all, it sounds pretty good to announce that the government should just stay out of everbody's business.

The problem, however, is that it doesn't. And over the past several decades, America has done a poor job of reminding everyone...
