"Having to pay for the damages and violence caused by drug addicts doesn't harm anyone, I suppose? Having a neighbor who abuses drugs and lets his house rot does not harm to the property values of the surrounding houses? Paying for the support of those who would rather get "high" than maintain a job doesn't harm anyone? You are a laugh riot, numbnuts! Obviously alcohol can do the same thing, but that sounds more like a reason to outlaw alcohol than an approval for other drugs to anyone with a sound mind." Your whole premise is based on the notion that all losses should be subsidized by society, instead of those actually harmed. In your world, if one can trace a path of causation to an act, then it is fair game for being outlawed.

As our focus continues to be on the violence in the Middle East, it is also important to pay attention to what is going on just south of our own border in Mexico. The war between the Mexican government and drug cartels is still raging with the war's latest victim being female Mayor Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who was beaten, burned, tortured and dumped for dead on the side of the road. Before being killed, Gorrostieta had been attacked twice by cartels for daring to challenge them. The third attack they waged on her, was her last.
