Legalizing All Illegal Drugs


Is cannabis something that you’d label as the choice of fools? Some would…maybe…but I don’t. That being said though…there’s a time and a place. If it isn’t the right time or place, it could still be a foolish decision.


You said illegal drugs. Cannabis is still an illegal drug




So wanting to end a policy that is an objective failure = zero laws and now we can murder people.

I should have known there was zero chance for an adult conversation. :roll_eyes:


I say legalize all natural “drugs,” decriminalize all non-natural drugs, and prosecute people for actual crimes they commit against other people, not for what they put in their own bodies.


To hell with NORML, lets look at over a hundred peer-reviewed and published studies conducted here in the United States on how medicinal cannabis really is:

Lets start with the fact that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has owned the patent on using cannabinoids as neuro-protectants and anti-oxidants since 2003.

And there are hundreds of other government-sanctioned/published studies on how cannabis kills tumor cells. This isn’t a secret, it’s a control measure, and a profitable one at that.

Cannabinoids in health and disease

Cannabis inhibits cancer cell invasion

Virtually every system in our body is specifically equipped with cannabinoid receptors. We are designed to ingest these molecules as a part of our overall health.


General welfare.


Alcohol is way more dangerous than weed.


I am ok with decriminalizing harder drugs, but say like heroin, if you are dealing you go to prison. As far as a user goes, I would rather as a taxpayer pay for rehab and medical than lock them up for a felony and ruin their lives.

Cannabinoids in health and disease.


Cannabis sativa L. preparations have been used in medicine for millennia.

However, concern over the dangers of abuse led to the banning of the medicinal use of marijuana in most countries in the 1930s.

Only recently, marijuana and individual natural and synthetic cannabinoid receptor agonists and antagonists, as well as chemically related compounds, whose mechanism of action is still obscure, have come back to being considered of therapeutic value. However, their use is highly restricted.

Despite the mild addiction to cannabis and the possible enhancement of addiction to other substances of abuse, when combined with cannabis, the therapeutic value of cannabinoids is too high to be put aside.

Numerous diseases, such as anorexia, emesis, pain, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative disorders (Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease), epilepsy, glaucoma, osteoporosis, schizophrenia, cardiovascular disorders, cancer, obesity, and metabolic syndrome-related disorders, to name just a few, are being treated or have the potential to be treated by cannabinoid agonists/antagonists/cannabinoid-related compounds.

In view of the very low toxicity and the generally benign side effects of this group of compounds, neglecting or denying their clinical potential is unacceptable–instead, we need to work on the development of more selective cannabinoid receptor agonists/antagonists and related compounds, as well as on novel drugs of this family with better selectivity, distribution patterns, and pharmacokinetics, and–in cases where it is impossible to separate the desired clinical action and the psychoactivity–just to monitor these side effects carefully.

No love lost for the dealers that prey on the vulnerable, but all the love in the world for people whose lives are so ■■■■ that they need a chemical vacation.


The Constitution absolutely does NOT do that.

Forget something known as the 9th Amendment?

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.


This country has all but ignored the 9th and 10th Amendments for about 150 years now.


Yes but it’s fingernails across the chalkboard for “Constitution-loving” conservatives, who love to be insufferable about how they’re the last bastions of constitutional knowledge, to completely ■■■■ up on a basic constitutional premise.


It’s fingernails across the chalkboard (we’re old for knowing this term now) for anyone of any political persuasion who has ideas they want to force on others.

If gay people have the right to marry, I have the right to carry concealed.

If people have the right to do pop Adderall and muscle relaxers together, I have the right to smoke a joint and eat some mushrooms.

People routinely ignore the 9th and 10th Amendments because it means other people get to do things they disagree with.


More accurately:

Not allowing people to smoke a naturally-growing plant that manking has been smoking for ages yet has not yet caused mankind to become extinct.

It really IS amazing that in the year 2019, we still let people go bankrupt for medical costs, but also fight tooth and nail to make sure people don’t get tingly for a few hours by smoking a natural plant.


I have found that most people who are against legalization have never smoked it or lived around it in any meaningful sense (im sure there exceptions). I remember when my parents caught me with marijuana growing up, my Mom yelled that I could have died lol. Like…ok this is a bit ridiculuous. The only real danger with marijuana is taking too much and having severe anxiety if you are prone to it. I’d wager thats more safe than your liver failing.


When it comes to life and death, perfection is all we can accept, and when they aren’t perfect, they must be held accountable. The problem is that too often they are not.

But but but the 2nd amendment is supposed to exist to stand up to an oppressive government…so if they government is going to win at least 99% of the time, then that purpose of the 2nd seems a little fruitless.


It’s time we consider moving to system that rehabilitates, rather than incarcerates, drug addicts. We can either keep the vicious cycle going, or we can attempt change.


Agreed 100%.

That is what freedom ACTUALLY looks like.
