marijuana is a naturally growing substance, meth requires manufacturing.
But if this is the requrement tahn Morphine also should be legal
I think it should still be regulated, like alcohol.
So that isn't a problem with morphine because it is already regulated
in what way
should it be avalible for rec use?
and regulated there
yes, but similar laws to alcohol, especially with regards to things like driving.
that is fair
but i think it should apply to all drugs
for the sake of removing it as funding for cartel/gang activity
I can see your point there as well.
as long as these things are illegal they will fund even worse activities like human trafficking
I guess a good way to go about it would be to have much stricter regulations on things like meth and heroine because those can actually kill you from an overdose, while marijuana cannot because of the amount you would have to smoke to die is impossible to smoke in the amount of time needed.
If your method of conducting whether it should be legal or not is based off arbitariness then that's not really a good position to hold.
but if the meth and heroine are regulated they will be less likely to kill you,
Hash and opium are naturally grown.
I'm not against weed liberation
you know how much each dose it
Many things are manufactured that is good for you.
So both sides of that coin is just... Bad.
but, i see people talking about it like a magic solution to "end violence"
and this pisses me off
It seems like your opinion on this is more based off popular culture / widespread appeal more so than reason.
Which is fair.
As long as you recognise it.
He's talking about hippies.
because i think it will reduce the amount of violence by removing it from the black markets
it might lower a bit
but, i don't think it will be a significant %
plus, it will be useless if the governement don't do anything else to end violence in poor communities
It'll lower gang violence, not common violence.
yes that is my claim
If gang violence is a non issue then obviously it's useless, but if it's the biggest concern then it's paramount. (Of course other drugs play a huge role too so just taking one off the list isn't going to do THAT much)
i think it is the largest concern though
