Should we legalize hardcore drugs like methamphetamine?

  • Legalize Meth to Industrialize it and Protect Families from Chemical Residue

    The kneejerk reaction in no is that since meth use can be so destructive we should ban it. But this doesn't consider data, it doesn't consider that the law is just a tool and is only worth using if it will yield the results we want.

    The first consideration of policy should be the effects on unconsenting others not the effects on idiots who are doing it to themselves(the meth users). In a policy where meth is illegal it gets produced in houses and then leaves residue and unsuspecting families get contaminated from it when they move in.

    Legalize meth and we can stipulate a regulation that it must only be produced in a factory setting and then the demand creating at-home productions would decline sharply.

    If this results in more people using and becoming addicted to meth we can pass out darwin awards to all those losers. The government's job is not to protect people from the consequences of their own actions which is what it does when it arrests and jails or offers rehab to meth users in an attempt to get them to quit. Let the natural consequences of meth get them to quit or let them die. It isn't worth the harm to innocent people who move into contaminated houses just so we can try to save people from their own stupidity.

  • I believe so

    I don't understand why we should punish certain drug addicts, but leave other drug addicts alone to do what they want. I am not saying that is good, but there needs to be logic in this debate. Drugs can be very dangerous, but what is the logic in just banning things that are dangerous? Meth addicts are not perfect citizens who are following the law perfectly. These addicts are the opposite, and they are driven to the other side by many causes, and they don't care much for what the law is. Education is the only thing that can bring down drug use, not just banning something dangerous. You don't get rid of that mentality that would bring you to smoking meth, but rather make them criminals and shoot up the black market. I'm done with citizens getting gunned down because of a policy, enacted in 1970, that doesn't curb drug use in any way. We need to start becoming intelligent.

  • It is not a narcotic it is a stimulant

    It isn't the stimulant causing meth mouth and crime. It's lack of values; multigenerational drug dealers; domestic violence; poverty; lack of education. Stimulants aren't the problem society is. Get it straight. Meth users are the lowest population of drug users in the united states versus heroin and marijuana. There are no facts you have to go back to 1970's and go to the library for the information because the Department of Social and Health Services removed all the factual information back then. It's not on the internet. Get off your ass and go to the library and ask for a PDR from the 70's and you'll find the real information about stimulants and meth.

  • Because FREEDOM YES

    The simple fact that Government acts as if it owns all the land the water the animals and Human beings they Don't I Believe A Human being should be allowed to Choose what he or she eats drinks where's smokes or injects into his or her own body so long as in doing so you don't steel from or assault others in the process

  • Meth is FDA-approved for children (6+ years old) to treat ADHD.

    The FDA has approved methamphetamine (sold as "Desoxyn") for the treatment of ADHD in children at least 6 years of age.

    The FDA has basically admitted that, under certain circumstances, using methamphetamine can be both beneficial & relatively safe.

    However, I should point out that meth addicts usually take large doses (which are less safe). When used medically, users take 5-25 mg of methamphetamine per day. When used for enjoyment, users often take 250-1000 mg per day.

  • Prohibition is bad.

    Drugs don't cause addicts to break into houses,
    its the LACK of drugs.
    The lack of drugs, really just artificially high prices, is directly caused by prohibition.
    End prohibition, prices fall, less crime by addicts.
    Quality rises, less negative health consequences.

    If we cant keep drugs out of a maximum security PRISON, just how much tyranny will it take to keep drugs out of a neighborhood?

    How much tyranny will you accept?
    How many grenades in a baby's crib is too many for you?

  • Legalize meth and all other drugs

    Drugs need to be taken out of the black market so that adults who wish to use may do so without having to associate with criminals in order to do so. I also think it would be much safer for everyone to have it available in the same way that alcohol is available because it would eliminate the need for makeshift labs. I am against having a law that makes personal choices a crime- what happened to freedom? Its time to end the "drug war" and quit being hypocrites about which substances are acceptable and which aren't.

  • Prohibition doesn't work; education and support do.

    Using the legal system to criminalize the manufacture, sale, and use of a marketable product, it breeds an underground criminal market place, without regulation regarding quality, and without informing the potential customer of the dangers of using the product.

    Prohibition does not work in irradiation of substances, regardless of how strict the punishment is for violating the law (this is a world wide fact). The only way to get drug abuse under control is to legalize all drugs, regulate their production to ensure safety for the user, accurate descriptions of effects of use on the packaging, tax the sale of these chemicals while maintaining a marketable price to discourage the resurgence of an underground marketplace, use the taxes collected to fund support programs for those who are ready to quit but are having issues with falling back into old habits. Obviously making criminals of casual users, addicts, and those who take advantage of the illegal marketplace hasn't put an end to the detriment society feels due to the existence of mind altering substances. It's time to take a different approach.

    The effects of prohibition have caused way more damage to society than any damage the current drug users, dealers, and manufactures have ever caused, because prohibition created that hole within the marketplace for the underground market to exist, tore families and lives apart, overpopulated our jails, squandered billions of tax dollars to do so, and has been used as justification for the militarization of our police forces. This needs to change now. The War on Drugs has destroyed America.

  • Stay Illegal! Don't Legalize Them!

    I don't understand why drugs should be legalized. It just makes no sense at all! More Street Violence, More Deaths, NOT GOOD! Do Not Even try to legalize them, they are extremely stupid for your health! If you take drugs, STOP NOW IF YOU WANT TO LIVE 14 YEARS LONGER THAN IF YOU TAKE DRUGS! It Will Be a disaster if drugs are legalized.

  • We should not legalize methamphetamines

    Methamphetamines are illegal and always have been. There should be no reason to change that. My dad used to use methamphetamines and his teeth are nearly gone. I have also seen pictures of people from one and the next and they were pale, had a lot of acne and seemed to be lost in space, dead for all I know. My mom also told me that people scratch their scin to the bone and I imagine they look terrible!

  • Of course not!

    It is only beneficial to society to illegalize drugs like methamphetamine. These drugs are highly toxic and will ruin your life and people's lives around you! There has to be some limit on drugs, because if we let people do whatever they want, society will fall apart, people will be going crazy on the streets, there will be even more street violence to obtain drugs, there will be more people driving high on drugs, it'll be a mess!

  • Hardcore drugs should stay illegal.

    By supporting the legalization fo hardcore drugs we are really supporting the crumbling of society. Hardcore drugs offer no health positives and are solely used to degrade the mind of the user. Having them legalized would put them in more hands than keeping them illegal. Keep hardcore drugs illegal and punishable.

  • Don't Give in - educate and help

    My son is addicted to meth. He was a great student, athlete and overall good guy in high school. One very bad life experience has caused him much pain and depression over the last few years. Lead him to try some drugs to help temporarily. Not a smart choice but it happened. Now we are fighting everyday to get him back to some stability. I vote to keep fighting for everyone.

No matter what type pf drug it is, it damages the brain, our system, it is addictive and destroys lives, it brings death, is this what we want for our future generation?
