Just legalize drugs and all the problems go away
Here we go again. Jack Cafferty writes for CNN:
If drugs were legalized, we could empty out a lot of our prison cells. People will use this stuff whether it’s legal or not. Just like they do booze. And you could make the argument that in some cases alcohol is just as dangerous as some drugs. I know.
Like I said … something to think about. It’s time.
Now, I only have one problem with this. It’s the same problem I’ve always had. People do stupid things when they’re drunk, they do much more violent things when they’re cranked up:
On and on and on it goes. That research wasn’t even hard to do. It’s headlines from THE LAST WEEK. It’s not even all of the headlines, I got tired of cutting and pasting what Jack Cafferty probably has already seen. So, the problem isn’t so much people sitting around peacefully, popping their favorite drug of choice, and watching The History Channel. It’s the problem that these people lose their mind and do crazy violent things. Simply enabling them won’t solve the problem if the local five and dime is closed and they run out of cocaine or meth. If anything, it will just make the problem worse as they’ll be able to work up that addiction as bad as they want it to get. So, until people like Jack Cafferty can tell me how we can deal with the effects of addiction, he’s not going to win his argument with me.
