  1. 12yr old liked it but had the same reaction I did: So wait, is this what the entire episode is about? Ugh. Some good parts and I like T.O. in his role.

  10. @I_Take_Roids_m8 Are you rioting in Philly? WTF is wrong with your people bro?
  11. I guess I'm not sold that more people would use it, much less children. And considering how easily young people get it today, i'm not sure that's a valid point to raise. Once drugs are legalized, the drug dealers, the drug gangs, and the drug cartels go out of business nearly immediately. They cannot compete against pharmacies and other private-sector companies that are now selling drugs. Unlike drug dealers in an illegal market, businesses in a legal market have a reputation to uphold. Their customer base depends on it. Thus, they have an incentive to avoid selling drugs to young people, given the adverse publicity that would come with selling drugs to them. Prices would plummet, which would mean that drug addicts and drug users would no longer have to engage in robbery or theft to pay exorbitant black-market prices. Drug addiction and drug abuse would be handled socially, just as alcoholism and tobacco addiction are. People with drug problems would no longer fear being sent to jail for their problem. They could be treated sympathetically and empathetically by others rather than as criminals.
  12. I think a case could be made that legalizing it (unrestricted supply, no more back ally deals, lower prices, cleaner drugs, medical monitoring, etc) will lower the number of drug users....that case is hard for me to make at this moment b/c I haven't read much on it in years tho. My first thought on legalizing drugs is a moral one....Do I own myself? Does anyone else have a higher claim to my life than myself? I can see communities where you actually consent to live there and agree to not do drugs. But under today's coercive system, the above moral argument supersedes any illegitimate claim the gov't has over a person.
  13. did you say the same thing when you were going through the alcohol prohibition?
  14. if drugs were legal there would be no deadly and violent "drug trade"
