Pothead logic, some of the most amusing stuff ever.
I don't get this "well hard drugs make you lunatic, so they shouldn't be legalized. However, other crazy drugs are legal, but are regulated so it isn't bad."
I can't help but wonder if we actually brought hard drugs off the streets and into actual purpose built clinics what would happen. Who would honestly go rushing off to do crack or meth? Would there be an epidemic? I doubt it, I know I wouldn't touch the same, same for most of you in here. If anything, you'd get a lot off addicts off the streets, away from pushers who are manipulating their consumers, and best yet, you'd have all sorts of help right there. If someone goes "lunatic" or whatever, or starts showing signs of serious addiction or whatever problems that come up, guess what? You could have all sorts of resources right there. None of this pure free market nonsense that people seem to jump to as the end result.
No more addicts out hidden in society, where who knows what will happen next. No more money flowing to gangs and cartels. Decriminalization has shown significant results in reducing drug use, full on legalization and regulation could very well help push those numbers down even more.
No you misunderstand. It is the immediate effect that is bad. People being completely unpredictable. With alcohol you can notice a person who is about to erupt some time ahead. With people on stuff that makes Valkyr sound like a regular drug, not so much. They are incredibly unpleasant to be around exactly because they are unpredictable. I have experienced that enough to not wanting to experience it ever again. And if the only recourse is to administer it while the user is strapped to a table, well then it isn't much of a legalisation is it now? People would then still buy the street variant because it offers freedom.
But otherwise, I think a decriminalisation of other drugs is the way forward. However, as I said, some drugs aren't just the user at risk. And taking such a drug is a reckless act by itself, as such taking it should still be a criminal act.
