War on Drugs: Are liberties protected in War on Drugs?

  • Yes, liberties are protected in the war on drugs.

    Every person in the United States has the right to bear arms. They also have the right to feel safe in their home. They also have the right to go wherever they want and feel safe. Drugs prevent all of these things. Drug users and sellers commit an amazing amount of the murders in the world. Drug users steal a large amount of guns. They do this by breaking into houses and stealing stuff. The war on drugs is a good thing. We need to incarcerate people for longer periods of time.

  • Yes, they are.

    The War On Drugs, while not the most productive war we have had, does protect individual liberties. There are quite a few policies and procedures in place to ensure the protection of personal freedom and liberty of even those suspected of drug activity. Illegal drugs are not a victim-less crime, as the fight for territory and money has spread to innocent neighborhoods. Thousands of people die every year over drugs, which is why the War On Drugs must continue.

  • The war on drugs violates liberties.

    The war on drugs leaves people unable to decide for themselves what they want to ingest. It also is problematic in that some things, such as alcohol, are legal, while others are not. Furthermore, the government and doctors are allowed to provide medical drugs that are no different than illegal ones. In some cases, such as medical marijuana, or cocaine as a medicine, they are exactly the drugs that are illegal. This is hypocritical and violates liberties. Many people go to jail for things that are not violent and don't harm other people.

  • No they are not

    The War On Drugs is a violation of our liberties in and of it self. The Government has no business passing laws against activities that involve no direct victim. So, it's no surprise that the prosecution of the War on Drugs has involved violations. It seems to be the inevitable result of it.
