Think about all of the excuses you hear about why drugs shouldn't be legalized: they are addictive they kill people they are bad for people's health etc. When I say drugs, I'm not talking about just marijuana, I am talking about the heavier stuff too. LSD. Meth. Cocaine. Banning something doesn't make it not harm people. Just because you say 'drugs are bad and now they are illegal' doesn't make them kill less people, drugs don't go away, isn't that the problem that's going on with mexico and the cartel- their whole income is basically on kidnapping women and selling them into human trafficking and propheting off of drugs. If people are going to do drugs, what is really wrong with that? As long as they are educated, and they know what drugs can do to you, just like teens are educated on sex, why shouldn't drugs be legal? Why shouldn't even the hardcore ectasy pills be legalized? If people want to die, if people want to get their lives all messed up on drugs, who are we as a country to say they cannot? It's seems like the reasons are all fear-based and pretty much centered around controlling other people's lives. By legalizing drugs, I'm not saying, feed drugs to your babies. There should be like an age limit just like drinking or whatever. All I'm saying is, what is the main reason that we can't just allow people to take some responsibility for themselves instead of babysitting them around? Cigarettes and alcohol are legal, and we know those things are terrible for your health. Then why can't we legalize Cocaine?
