do u think the government should legalize drugs because they sell em legally why can't we
Debate Rounds (3)
When the government sells drugs, they do so for medicine. If you are sick you can get better. Legalizing something such as cocaine so that people have an excuse to get high would just result in them becoming more readily available and in turn more people becoming addicted, intoxicated and yes a higher death rate due to that.
The matter is doctors can prescribe medications to help cure illnesses. Drugs however still have the tendency to be super addictive, have severe withdrawl and overdose effects and can severely impair the person taking them. Whether for recreation or not this practice could get very deadly.
When it comes right down to it, people can abuse medications but that doesn't give the right to legalize dangerous drugs.
Let's compare it to the Death penalty. You can legally execute someone effectively murdering them, but that also doesn't mean that we should legalize murder because of that.
