Since my last post dealt with drugs fleetingly, I thought I should address them a bit further. Firstly, I believe that using any drug at all is stupid and idiotic. Secondly, I do not get the emphasis on keeping people from harming themselves or dying because of drugs: if they want to die due to it, then allow them, just hopefully in private and in a way not injurious to others. I am in favor of all drugs being legal or all being illegal; however, since cigarettes and alcohol will never be conceivably illegal in the United States, all drugs should be legal. Drug use will initially rise and eventually fall. Enforce highly strict penalties for any public damage caused by drug abuse (much higher than at present). Keeping pot illegal and taboo while cigarettes and alcohol are legal is a farce, hypocritical, cowardly, and absurd (sometimes not both the second and third, but usually, as applied to individuals' reason to be against it, is so).
