Um, I think it depends which drug laws you're talking about. But I do agree that police should concentrate on the suppliers rather than the addicts.

i agree with tas. i understand that the government have to stop people becoming heroin addicts and stuff, but i really really hate it if someone gets prosecuted for doing things to their own body. i'm not sure what the ideal solution is.

some laws are harmful, personally I think marijuana should be legalized and other drugs left illegal. Then quality control would be impossed, and people would be drawn away from more dangerous drugs

some ppl say i'm hypocritical because i thin cigarrettes should be illegal, but I wouldn't have a problem with them if there was quality control on them

1. drug laws originated to supress minority groups, such as asians and hispanics, by taking away part of their culture, the specific drug(like we have booze) 2. we spend billions of dollars each year keeping drugs out of our country, but only succeed in keeping out 10% of them 3. with all that money we spend keeping out 10% of all those drugs, EVERY PERSON IN THE U.S. COULD GO TO COLLEGE

depends how you approach it. if you were to legalize drugs but provide free health care for those that f--k themselves up, then no they don't. frankly, i don't want a bunch of addicts doing getting free healthcare for their own free choice. similarly, i don't think the government can regulate it. thus, until we don't provide health benefits to junkies (among other reasons) i will take a war on drugs that limits the number of users and potential junkies over full legalization.

". drug laws originated to supress minority groups, such as asians and hispanics, by taking away part of their culture, the specific drug(like we have booze)" obviously they could not have originated because many people die the first time they use drugs or that once addiction sets in they cant pay child support for thier kids.of course not.no way
