If that increase was matched by standard dosages, purity and regulatory regimes that increase may not neccessarily be a bad thing; people are always going to use drugs - they are going to excercise the right to control their minds.

But it is good to know that the pressure will be put where it's needed; the proles shouldn't be able to get their hands on drugs, those with enough money to not be victims though are a whole different thing.

The U.S. policy on marijuana stinks to high heaven - no pun intended. The pharmacuticals make billions and some poor slob gets busted with a couple of joints and gets sent to prison. It's dispicable.

You are correct!Drugs should be legalized!Enforcing these laws do nothing,except create revenue for the gov't.Tax payers pay and pay.Why not try it.It would be no different than alcohol.

As my father (a doctor) has always said, he'd rather me smoke a joint and scoff a pizza on a Friday night than knock back a bottle of booze and a bunch of cigarettes.

I think the problem is less tax and more if you legalize anything you are essentially handing over government to your opposition. Imagine the field day of fear generated if someone tried it. Imagine if a Democrat candidate right now said they thought even just decriminalising (very different to legalizing) marijuana was not a bad idea. They'd be buried in an instant. No-one will do it.

Problem with this is what about the people who will mix it with other drugs to create a more dangerous drug?

People will get addicted even with small doses. The grave diggers are sure going to be busy. hmmm maybe I should find a job with them if this happens.

You can mix wine and xanax right now and it be pretty dangerous.

And I have no clue what you are talking about with the grave diggers.

Try and think of something that will be a danger that isn't or can't occur at the present.

What I meant on the grave diggers is that they will be busier than usual since many want all drugs legalized. Think about it. What if a child accidently took it? Used it for murder to OD someone? Or mixing drugs? Yup the grave diggers will surly be busy because of this.

If drugs are legalized do you think there would be a huge surge in use? Granted some people may get hooked, but most people will not become cokeheads if things get legalized. Sadly, the grave diggers won't see a rise in business.

True we'll have a bunch of drug king pins claiming racism and how the white man took their product. And we will have FYMders saying it's true.

I didn't mean that this was a bad thing - meant for there to be some sarcasm. My bad.

What if a child accidently takes oxycotin or drinks too much alcohol? What if they used a gun for murder?

Nope the grave diggers will have the same steady jobs they have today.
