Ilegal Drugs

Now if you all will check my profile, you will all see that I have been around for a while. I'm a child of the 60's, you know, Woodstock, CSN,(Crosby, stills & Nash), Jimmy Hendrix, etc. I got drafted for Vietnam and shit my pants. I did not want to kill anybody. All I wanted to do was chill out, smoke dope, and keep ahead of my parents and my grades. I have had my share, I have "done my thing", and with all my experience I can give you all the following advice:
1. All drugs must be legalized.
2. When legalized they will be easier to control.
3. When legalized & Controlled The profit will be controlled.
4. When the profit is controlled the criminals will leave.
5. When the criminals leave, people can begin to heal themselves.
6. When people heal themselves, society will heal.
7. When society heals we won't have a drug problem.

When you suddenly realize that your about to die, life seems more interesting.

zygotican!

you sir are from the same era as my parents.i grew up in a household where mom and dad burned a doober once in awhile and didn't feel that it was necessary to hide it from me and my sister.They explained what it was and where it came from when i was fairly young(8-9).They also told me that some other people in the world didn't like it and if THEY found out,me and sis would go live in foster care.my folks were being as honest as they could be at the time.(Neil Young and Bob Dylan playing in the background!)My dad and his four brothers all went down to the county-city building for the draft lottery during the Vietnamese Police Action(sic)none of them drew that "get yer ass on the truck"number.They did their duties and entered the draft,so no draft dodgers here.When i hit 16 years old,mom and dad set me down and said"look,we know your gonna try it.whether it's weed or beer or booze,if ya' wanna try it talk to us first"well,as a scared 16 year old i actually had the balls one night when dad was out of town to ask mom"hey,i wanna smoke a joint!"she handed me the stuff and the papers and said"if you can roll it you can burn it"then ended up doin'it for me.point is,i smoked the stinky for my first time in a safe,controlled place with a trusted adult not out with some dumbshit friends.then i ate all the junk food in the house!the first time i drank beer was similar to this,a buddy of mine(his mom and my mom were friends)got a bonfire goin'one night and jokingly asked my mom to buy us beer!she did but we had to pay for it.we got messed up but we were in a safe,controlled environment,not out drinking and driving.
So when i have come to the conclusion,when my kids get a bit older i will be doin' the same with them so that you wont see them on the news either dead or getting arrested for killing someone else!

Different experiences

I had a different experience. My dad was a staff SGT, straight as an arrow. I stayed away from drugs because I saw what it did to people. If it was controlled better would more people get hooked? The Billion dollar drug war has not done much to curve availability.
Even alcohol is a joke. 21 years old to drink. Kids binge and abuse it. I think the age should be 18. I never had a drinking age. We boozed legally at 18, and were in bars at 16. By the time I hit 21, I did not even care about drinking. Bored of it already.
If we removed the magic from drugs, would this help stop abuse?
I just do not care what anyone elese does, just dont make our taxes pay for it. I do not want to pay for rehab, medical care for oD's all the drug related shit we pay for.

The Mexican government must also step up and use their Military in a more forceful way to combat these drug cartels. It may already be too late for the Mexican government to do this as I fear the corruption of the drug cartels money and terrorist tactics may have already weakened them to a point of almost utter uselessness.

Don't legalize it yet

I agree that legalizing weed is a good thing, although my glasses are a bit less rosy than the hippie who started this topic. Criminals don't go away. They find other laws to break. It should remain illegal to operate a motor vehicle while high, as you are impaired. What we need is a THC level that can be legally accepted as being the point at which impairment begins, (like a BAC of .08-.10 is typically accepted as an excessive level of alcohol and is where most states recognize DUI or DWI), and a legally accepted method of measuring that level in the field. I can do VGN (Vertical Gaze Nystagmus) that indicates an high level of alcohol or the presence of drugs in an offender's system, but it doesn't tell the level. A field test device like we have for alcohol in the PBT device and a definitive test device like the Intoxilyzer machine should be invented and then I would be completely in favor of legalization.

Failed Drug War

I'm certainly not ready to deal w/a society that's plastered. I don't see that as a National money-maker at all, not in larges or socially. I hear commentary about a failed drug war. That failed drug war is the same reason we got run out of Viet Nam. I have been an participant in both wars, RVN (USA) and Drugs at NNBIS-SE/ONDCP S-E and the VPs South Florida Task Force. In both cases these actions have been fought with huge constraints upon those fighting. In both cases American liberalism rang the loser bell. In the Fight against Drugs the Military provided "detection" and Law Enforcement "interdiction". The military did not cordon the Nations Borders because the politicians would not let them. Well, gee, now isn't that the same reason we have a flood of illegal immigrants. And believe me folks they sure aren't all Mexicans. So, what rights do we want to protect American or (?) ? Regarding the use of THC, I'm not a qualified Medico or Politician or Social Anthropologist, they need to get that figured out not me. I do know that the ACLU, like type organizations as well as the arm-chair potheads are also "like myself" not qualified to make a rational judgement. Anecdote: While serving in Germany 1970-73, we had an intense drug problem. Of 103 personnel I had (at one time) almost a quarter were not deployable. I saw kids that I knew were using THC daily simply deteriorate to unreliable excess. Some moved up to heroin . It was over after that. In 3 years I never saw a known heroin user recover. Man, that is sad to see a kid shipped home at 21years of age that was totally useless. Their every waking moment (if they weren't high) was in pursuit of narcotics (of some kind). OK, that's my little bit, if you don't agree, it's all right. But the next time some "pothead" fixes the brakes on your auto; pls ,don't call me. There's a lot of personal stuff here that's left unsaid, of course. I would just ask you not to engage in defeatism too early !

(You have to look behind all of that outer space stuff)

Smoking weed illegally is a gateway activity. Weed may be addictive, but so is tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, gambling and a whole host of other things that are legal. That's not to say it's right, but it doesn't hurt anyone else. Make something illegal, people will do it unsafely. That is not to say we should just legalize everything that is currently illegal, but I can't see any reason for weed to be illegal when tobacco and alcohol are besides the amount of campaign contributions provided by Phillip Morris as compared to that of High Times magazine.
