"I just don't understand why all the political puppets don't get it.. The only thing strict drug laws guarantee are higher rates of drug use, inflated prices, and more crime.. As they say in New Hampshire. Live Free, Or Die."
So the highly potent drugs that help spread HIV (and many other terrible diseases), cause parents to abandon or neglect children, create need for extremely expensive rehab programs and facilities, cause domestic violence, push men, women and children on the street , oh and cause many deaths due to overdose should be cheap?
What they say in New Hampshire matters not as that phrase has no relationship to the drug use. Unless people of New Hampshire are also advocating for cheap/free meth, cocaine, heroin ... but then the drug overdose, hepatitis, HIV and others will get them. So the results is still "die" not "live free".
Brian Maynard - sugars (various kinds) are a part of an essential diet for humans. Furthermore, i have yet to see someone stab another person for a packet this terrible white drug.
People constantly misunderstand what freedom is and how it works. One man's freedom ends where another man's freedom starts. It is not the government limiting the freedoms, it is the other people limiting people's freedoms. Just because there is a freedom of speech, doesn't mean one can scream in my ear, in my house, in the middle of the night. Unless it is my kink of course.
Another example - people are free to come together and decide what they want their government to do and how it should protect their freedoms. It sucks to be in the minority, but everyone is free to leave or build a majority.
