and yep I do think bath salts should be available. I also wonder if people would turn to bath salts if a bag of weed or coke was sitting right next to it at the same gas station?...I also think that everyone who uses bath salts gets high and tries to eat people. I see thousands of those cases a day. Since I believe people should be able to use bath salts, Robitussin, or whatever else they want to get high, that has to mean that not only do I support such behavior I actually encourage it. If people want to kill themselves by all means go nuts. The bath salt epidemic reminds me of the PCP scare...helen hunt jumping out a window anyone?
47000 deaths in mexico alone in drug related violence since 2006. That doesn't count Colombia. But that doesn't matter. Those people aren't defended here, it is the people who od on their own volition in the US that matter. By the way, those numbers are probably low as the different states in mexico have a hard time gathering consistent data. That doesn't include Colombia or any other latin american country.
Your argument against the drug war is based in morality, I pointed out that it is morally selective in its nature of who you believe to be more important. in other words, it is morally inconsistent. I don't use a moral argument for the ending of the drug war personally. I can point out statistics and all sorts of negatives associated with it, but ultimately the people involved in it are choosing to do so. They do so at their own risk...just like drug users. I just wanted to point out to you that caring about some deaths over others is strange.
Personally, I just think it is bad policy if one wants to truly end drug use and fiscally irresponsible to continue to fight a war with no hope of ever winning. Spend half of it on treatment and save the other half...or if you have to spend it...spend it on enforcing victim crimes.
No my opinion is based in logic. If we legalize all drugs
, we as a society
are sending the message we condone the use, you a perfect example of just this.
You yourself condone the use as bolded in red.
This with your I don't care attitude
for the children
who try drugs.
They are as innocent as those dying across the world.
They are being used and abused. Their brains do not understand consequence until age 25
by then the damage done is massive, if they are still breathing that is.
There is no responsible use of highly addictive hard drugs
. Use will escalate, use will kill.
Use will hurt our country.
The fact that you encourage
others to use drugs you are also supporting
the killing of those caught in the drug war and those dying using drugs.
You are selectively "writing off" those who use drugs without
the consideration for life.
And all the lives effected by another's hard drug use.
You are morally selective, choosing to only feel for those caught in violence.
Yet it appears you could care less about the violence
that would come from legalizing all drugs,
just in the example of bath salts alone,
which is legal and you are fine with
My book ... one cannibal is one cannibal too many
From your words here your high horse is .... if you are dumb enough to use ... die then,
to me that callous is morally wrong
and ridiculous because no one dies alone.
Someone innocent is aways hurt...
everyone is someone's child and much more... Every life is valuable, our choices not ours alone.
This the purpose of life, the connection of life.
