Drugs are bad, m'kay?

The local chairman of the Left Youth has been busted for having a cannabis garden in his home. No surprise there but I fail to see the point of both using (for other than medical purposes) cannabis and criminalizing the use of it. Contrary to what Mr. Mackey says, marijuana isn't that bad and not much, if any, worse than alcohol or tobacco. But yes, it's sad that some people need hard drugs to enjoy life. But if you want to stick a needle into your vein and kill yourself (which is NOT the case with marijuana) then fine - I have no reason to object. Besides - our gene pool gets better every time an idiot commits suicide.

Problem being, that before this junkie kills himself, he might snuff out a few drugstore employees on the way.

You are right - and criminalizing drugs will end these kind of problems.

I am just responding to what Mikko says that he doesn't give a rat's ass if somebody sticks a needle to his arm. Nobody is saying here that drugs should or should not be decriminalized but that these junkies are not hurting just themselves. Any fool knows that high crime rate among the junkies is sky high and we all are victims.

You miss the point. Crime around drugs flourishes because the "industry" has been forced to go underground. Gangs, international crime organizations etc. would lose a major source of income if drugs were legalized. Plus if all drugs were legalized more money would be put into r&d which would result in "better" drugs.

And one should also note that marijuana is out of this debate since it's no more harmful than beer or tobacco.

What the hell is it that we don't seem to get on the same page? I have no problem with changes in by whom and how the drugs would be distibuted. All I am saying that when you say it's non of your concern if somebody shoots some bad shit up to his arm is non caring, shortsighted and eventually suicidical. Mikko, you seem to miss compassion and that is my only point. Put this in your pipe and smoke it!
