All the talk about legalization reminds me of the attitudes that pervaded the masses in the last days of the Roman Empire. Hearing all this, I can't help but think that the USA has only another decade or two of supremacy left. Hope that I am wrong, but unless this country makes a 180 degree turn, I see no way of avoiding it.
All we need is liberty.
You are of course right. Many advocates for legalization use the moronic argument that the people now involved in the drug trade will go away if there is legalization. Well, the people who robbed trains and stage coaches didn't go away went those means of transporting money were suplanted. The bad guys involved in prohibiition did not go away when prohibiition was repealed. And the bad guys won't go away if drugs are legalized. What bad things they will do, though, is a wild card.
get pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt,
when they knock on your door to take your guns,
when you are dying in agony but unable to ask your doctor to put you out of your misery
remember you deserve everything coming to you because you were against the liberty to control your own destiny.
