Society is gradually becoming more liberal – or libertine – in many ways, and one of the latest trends is the gradual legalization of marijuana in one state after another. This past election, voters approved marijuana for legal (recreational) use in Colorado and Washington. Marijuana has been legalized for recreational or medicinal use in 13 states, with more states to consider it soon. 15 million Americans are regular users of marijuana, a little over 5% of of the population. It seems problematic to criticize its legalization from a logical perspective considering alcohol, another psychoactive substance, is legal. If it is acceptable...
In response to:
legalisation of "the powders" is a red herring. NOBODY except crazed anarchists posing as Libartarians is pushing for legalisation of heroin. Lets stick to the subject at hand and forgo the strawman heroin argument? Heroin is CONSTANTLY used a strawman argument when talking about Amsterdam, THEY DONT HAVE POT PROBLEMS NOR VIOLENCE FROM IT. All their social drug pathology is heroin or cocain, exstey some cra.p like that. Their chief of poilce on 60 minutes 30 years ago (in sing-songy Hollander accent) "never any trouble from the pot bars only trouble from the alcohol bars". BTW, you want to protec the public from killer drugs, ban Acetominaphene. When pot is documented to have killed someone, CALL ME.
