    The War on Drugs



    Drugs Inc is a good show that comes on Nat Geo. I know the video above is 44 minutes long, but you might find it interesting.

    So what do you think the U.S. or even the world should do about drugs like cocaine and heroine? Marijuana is being legalized for mostly medical reasons.

    Do you think drugs should be legalized for recreation? If say cocaine was legalized do you think pharmacies would get a hold of it and make it safer?

    What do you think about the war on drugs? Effective or ineffective?

    I've always said that our governments should take over the drug trade and get the tax off it and it makes it safer for us as we know what were purchasing! The big problem is...if they done that the Drug gangs would move onto something else.

    Nothing good comes from it. We restrict rights, imprison people for non-detrimental actions, spend billions on the effort, and encourage and empower criminals in their activities. Drugs need to be legalized, regulated so they're safe. We need to offer care for those wanting to get off of drugs, but are too scared now because it's illegal. We need to remove them from being a social taboo. Just like with anything else in life, we need to encourage a mature and responsible mentality towards drugs.

    How have we not learned from our history? Did the alcohol prohibition not teach us anything important? The war on drugs has failed. It has been failing since the very start.

    imo depends on the drug. I don't do drugs but marijuana is fine by me. other drugs do have hefty consequences.

    You can not have a " WAR ON DRUGS " if your governments are providing the money and weapons to the one's selling the drugs.

    Drugs, in moderation, are perfectly fine.

    So do you think drugs like cocaine and heroine that have devastating side effects should be watered down to be safer?

    No one would buy watered down cocaine, the reason people do it is to get that rush / high. In America atleast you will never be able to control drugs, ever.

    It would be watered down to be safer, not to take the effects away. So no one would buy safer cocaine?

    The cocaine you buy by the gram/wrap whatever has already been "cut" a few times with god knows what. It is already watered down so to speak.

    Its mainly cut to increase profits, the dealers don't give a $#@! if someone dies of an OD.

    You get 1KG of coke then cut in another KG of powder you double your profits.

    probably not. take this for example, if people know that a dealer cuts his coke 60/40 in favor of baking powder, they don't buy it. u think they'll knowingly buy watered down coke?

    All drugs should be legalized. This is about personal responsibility of the individual and about not wasting billions each year trying to control something that can't be controlled.
