Legalizing drugs doesn't benefit anything or anyone, except for druggies. Every argument I've ever heard for legalizing drugs were from drug users themselves. You mean to tell me we need to start listening to such people?

Ignorance FTL.

#3 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16843 posts) -

Drug users aren't inherently bad people because they use drugs. Although I know at least one drug user who is one of the worst people I've ever met.

As far as the issue goes I don't even care anymore. I don't use them and I don't ever plan on starting. I understand using drugs every once in a while to just get high or whatever but a lot of the users I know do so to deal with shit in their life and even though they're my friends it's still pathetic as hell.

On what do you base this conclusion?

#5 Posted by ad1x2 (5730 posts) -

I don't use illegal drugs but I really don't care if they legalize pot or not. My only issue is with people who act like weed is some miracle drug that can cure cancer and the only reason it is illegal is so Big Pharma can keep charging you for their products.

Legalization of Marijuana in the United States would put a huge dent in Mexican Drug Cartel influence in the Southwestern United States

@Nuck81: Perhaps, but at the expense of the health of the general American population.

I wonder if you know that weed has been medically legal in some states for almost 20 years. People are not getting sick, they are getting better.

Nope,I sadly live in retard state thats behind the times, but they are on the move to legalize just like everyone else who has a brain. The recent senate session for legalization in my state, passed 11-0 .. :)

You all are just proving my point that only druggies are pro-legalization.

They're retards because they don't see the benefits hugely outweigh any cons. Just these 4 alone, make the law look ridiculous.

1. The drug is very safe. You would die overdosing on coffee before weed

2. Massive amounts of money to be made

3. New jobs ranging from everything from gardening to bud tender

4. Millions saved every year on arrests and trials.

#17 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16843 posts) -

@ad1x2: It also bothers me when people treat weed like a miracle drug. As I understand it, weed is used more as a pain killer than anything for cancer patients. It does nothing to actually treat the disease, just eases the pain a bit.

I don't do any drugs whatsoever, and have no intention of doing so, but for Marijuana, I support legalization of it.

And besides, history has proven prohibition doesn't work. And before you say "How do you know that? You can't prove it", the 18th and 21st amendments to the constitution say hello.

That ain't bunk, it's straight up facts and is very easy for anyone to see without blindfolds on. lol

Okay, even if it was true, that doesn't change the fact that only stoners are pro-legalization.

#25 Posted by toast_burner (21989 posts) -

@aebghdfsc said:

And how do stoners expect to be taken seriously when they justify their recreational usage by saying it has medicinal benefits? What, does it relieve their boredom? I don't recall boredom being mentioned in a medical dictionary.

Has anyone in that thread made that argument? The only people I saw say anything like that was to debunk your nonsense that weed is dangerous.

You said it's bad for your health, well prove it. And even if it is bad for you, why does that mean it should be illegal?

There is actual video of weed killing cancer cells.

Assuming you're telling the truth, why?

#32 Posted by MonsieurX (30823 posts) -

I'm never touched drugs in my life but I support its legalization,considering

1)The cash that will get in the government's pocket that can be re-inserted somewhere else instead of of drug lords.

2)Better supervision of the product

3)Less organized crimes around that

#33 Posted by deeliman (2520 posts) -

Why are you guys even bothering? He's either a troll or an extremely thick headed person, you're not going to change his mind.

#34 Edited by jer_1 (7451 posts) -

Lol, such thread fail...Give it up OP, the laws are finally changing thankfully. Just understand that for the people that do choose to use it, it provides them relief. Don't act like a purposefully ignorant child over it.

#35 Posted by Emil_Fontz (306 posts) -

Your assertion is incorrect, OP. I have never ingested marijuana in any form and am in favor of its legalization. Even though I have no desire to use marijuana, I believe that as a natural substance that emanates from the Earth, every one has a right to consume it if they wish to do so. Furthermore, one of my central principles is that everyone should have the right to do whatever they want so as long as it's harmless to others.

#38 Posted by XilePrincess (13130 posts) -

I've never done a drug in my life, and I'm pro-marijuana. No, smoking is never good, but marijuana is natural, cigarettes are chemical-laden and disgusting, and there are other ways to ingest pot, including ways that do not get you 'high'. Lots of ways to use it instead of pharmaceuticals to help various conditions, and it generates a SHIT TON of easy money for the government.

I am not pro-legalizing stuff like heroin or meth. Hard, addictive drugs don't help anyone.

#39 Posted by bforrester420 (1706 posts) -

Is this dumb ass back, again, taking about marijuana legalization? You talk about legalizing pot more than the potheads.

#40 Posted by Wolf-Man2006 (4187 posts) -

Not sure if serious. Either way I'm for the legalization of marijuana (speaking as a former user). It would help our economy, bring forth jobs, decrease number of inmates in prison. That say, I can't say the same thing about heroin, meth, cocaine, and so on. They're simply horrible.

Actually, I believe everybody is laughing at your ignorance on the subject and are wondering why somebody that clearly knows nothing about the subject, would even bother making a thread about it.

Alcohol is the biggest DRUG on the planet you stooge.

#45 Posted by foxhound_fox (89387 posts) -

It is a fallacy to dismiss an argument in favour of legalization because it comes from a user.

Judge the argument, not the arguer.

#46 Posted by Xeno_ghost (683 posts) -

There are legal drugs that are just as damaging and addictive as the illegal drugs. If someone wants to take drugs they will take drugs regardless of wether they are legal or not.

@ad1x2: It can cure cancer. Marijuana as a plant is much better for you than any pills for many issues people have. Also most Pharma medicine contains so called"illegal" drugs.

You would not eve say that if you knew all the ways it can be used. people with babies who have certain issues use cannabis oil. For medicinal purposes THC is taken out. I don't care tho, i can always get it when i feel like it, Rather help my dealer than the economy aye.

People are very uneducated on Cannabis, they know what Jew media propaganda tells them. its all The Elite monopoly from media to mega pharma corporations, its all one net of the top 500

Well, depending on how dangerous it is, that very well could be a valid reason for it being illegal. I mean, if I'm running a restaurant it's illegal for me to sell expired chicken. There are all sorts of regulations for what businesses can and can't legally sell, and it should be that way.

Having said that, weed isn't very dangerous. I'd argue that it's certainly not dangerous enough to warrant its sale being illegal. I'm just saying that some people argue "it's my body and it's no one else's business", and I don't think that logic holds. There is a responsibility to the public's safety, and it's entirely possible that certain things should be illegal simply because of the danger posed by them.
