Your contributions to society are noted, but stay on topic. The topic is “War on drugs” and your contributions beyond that are appreciated but not relevant. If you are using illegal drugs, you are keeping drug dealers (felons) in business. Therefore, I believe you are indeed part of the problem. Even if you buy MJ from a dealer, chances are he sells a ton of other shit … so by putting cash in his pocket you are also permitting him to expand his heroine and cocaine business, I would imagine.
If you personally didn’t use MJ, the illegal drug business would suffer a small bit. Do you contest this?
Consider gay rights. Gay people want to get married but could not legally do so. That doesn’t mean gay people are actually getting married and sharing benefits with one another. It’s illegal and governments didn’t honor it. For the most part, their assembly has been peaceful and any legalization of gay marraige was without crime. This gives it at least some legitimacy; whether I personally agree or not is irrelevant. Using illegal drugs then telling the government “I want to use illegal drugs” is a backasswards way of solving serious problems.[/quote]
I am sure from some’s perspective I am part of the problem I am also sure that people that make judgements on on faulty or skewed information are also part of the problem.
I personally do not want to use illegal drugs . I would rather they be legal and I advocate for their legality at evry oportunity
