The word “legalize” is stupid. Rant…
First let me say that I do not use, support or condone the use of drugs. I do not use any drugs, alcohol or tobacco and I use one prescription drug for prostate issues. That said:
With the onslaught of gun regulations to promote sanity, the war on drugs that promotes much of the insane use of guns and countless amounts of social insanity because of our laws…we are faced with the empirically tested truth that drugs are here to stay no matter what. We can’t even keep drugs out of the prison system. But we pigheadedly refuses to bring about a new way to deal with drugs and those that choose to use them.
Even God gave people Free Will to choose but man in his infinite wisdom has decided he knows more than even God when it comes to people. How can man know more than the one that created man? Man truly does not have the right to “legalize” anything! Legislate for protection is a given but not to legislate for personal choice. What if we started to legislate Religion or which one of the many Gods you can choose to believe in or not believe in? We allow people to gather in groups and drink poison Kool Aid but those dam peace loving stoner hippies have to be stopped at all cost!
Imaginary arguments rage over what will happen if people are allowed to rule and govern themselves with Free Will just as nature provided. Men have been doing that for millions of years and are still here. But the moral majority seems content to live a lie of hypocrisy believing themselves to be above the law, the “common man” and God when it comes to control of people’s lives. God simply made another error here and it is up to man to step in and control everyone. All this does is create hate and rebellion enforcing the behavior that the intended laws were trying to stop.
Cars, alcohol and tobacco have proven themselves to be more offensive and detrimental than anything else with the exception of malpractice that kills more people than anything else. But we don’t make alcohol, cars, tobacco and our “legal drug dealer” doctors illegal? This is insanity! Our country has a bigger problem with legal drugs and doctor pushers than illegal ones!!!
We need to stop the war on drugs and the place to start is with neutralizing or naturalizing the social use of natural earth given plants and holistic herbs. Especially hemp for industrial use!!! It makes no sense that one groups drugs of choice (prescription and alcohol) should be looked at as legal while another groups, God given from the natural earth, is looked at as bad and evil. This is insane. Where is the Freedom in all of this? Where is God? I never read the 11th commandment about drugs? I guess personal choice was meant to be a Free Will thing!? Or did God simply forget to send that part down?
Legislate whatever is necessary to protect the citizenship from people that abuse drugs in violent or dangerous ways just the same as we do with alcohol but STOP THE WAR and much of the gun violence AND drug use will simply go away! Take away the money and life style from drugs and the business of drugs will die away on its own. It’s the adversarial conditioning that feeds much of the insanity especially with kids.
Those that do fall for addiction can be helped at a fraction of the cost we are now spending on our war on drugs…a war that is truly just a civil war on the people all over the world. And people of none violent victimless crimes of self-abuse can be assisted much more humanely than criminal federal constitutional rights stripping incarceration can provide.
Attempting to force behavior on people with laws is wrong from the very start and we now clearly see the horrific negative ramifications of our law actions. As a society…WE are wrong not the drug users. WE mishandled this one! Education is the key…not legislation. The kids are laughing in the face of our social hypocrisy and blatant stupidity!!!!
