    Default Wow, look who's taking up the fight to legalize pot

    It would be none other than Sen. McCain's daughter, Megan.
    John McCain's daughter says pot should be legal

    She keeps this up and she's going to lose her lifetime membership to the looney righty club. I personally think the drug war is a scam. They don't want to win it, it's just an excuse to spend taxpayer money so I think they might as well legalize all drugs. If they do, watch the usage rates drop like a rock, just like in Portugal.

    I don't personally think legalizing pot would be a bad thing. I'm not going to go out and start puffing away, but I could care less if someone else is. I don't think pot is any worse than alcohol. There are a lot of conservatives that think that way.

    Go Dude!!

    I do not smoke anything,but other than drug dealers the number of Pot offenders in prison is sickening and doing nothing productive.

    The # of crimes,death,sadness,broken homes,misery as a result of Alcohol is so SAD!!

    Legalize it regulate it and move on to the big issues of this Country in Dire Straights!!

    What about Cocaine, Meth, and Heroin?

    Keep it illegal. That stuff does bad things. There are a lot of people that say just to legalize it all (All were conservatives) but I think it would be devastating to our youth for a long time. We have a different society than Amsterdam. I think of the kids my son went to high school with that stayed away from drugs (including pot) knowing that it was illegal. Some dabbled with alcohol because it is legal. If you legalize hard drugs, you'll see some of the kids that would normally stay away, try it for kicks. You's see a lot of people hooked. Some of that stuff isn't a one time only drug, meth for one.

    1) Drugs are not legal in Amsterdam, including pot.
    2)Portugal decriminalized drugs in 2001. Usage has dropped since then.
    3) think of all the money spent in the war on drugs:military, coast guard, prisons, courts, etc. You want to cut spending, there's a good place to start. Think of all the crime involved with drugs, just like during prohibition. You legalize drugs and watch crime drop.

    Portugal is a different culture. In the long run, i think you may be correct that drug use would drop, but it would be a generation before that would happen. Our culture is too intrenched in fads. Drug use among teens would explode because it's cool and their favorite celebrity just went through rehab for the fourth time.
    Case in point is MTV's show about teen parents. Teens were getting pregnant on purpose just so they could maybe have a chance at being on MTV!!!

    I have no stats or any figures to back it up. It's just my observation of our current MTV culture.

    Pot is nothing.

    meth, heroine, Cocaine are life destroyers, plain and simple.

    Philosophical opinions mean nothing with the hard drugs. They are poison to the individual and society.

    Alcohol is way worse than pot. If anyone has a mind to, read the book Good Medicine Great Sex by David Ford, it's a very interesting read and could enlighten some eyes.

    Portugal???
    Are you kidding Me??

    Comparing a Country of roughly 12 million to an industrialized Nation (that would be us) of 314 million people???
    You actually think that the results could be compared in any way???

    Moronic, that's what that comparison is.

    It's akin to comparing a WH sponsored illegal gun running operation that results in the deaths of American LEO to getting a blow job in the Oval Office.

    Well, I'd probably allow peeps to plant coca trees and chew leaves. If they need coca so bad that they are willing to plant a tree, nothing I can do will stop them.

    And did our drug laws deter your use or help your recovery in any way?

    For Me, Yes.

    But I was a "functioning" junkie. For the most part I was careful not to be reckless.
    That was strictly Cocaine.
    These kids today are of the hook with the Opiates like oxy and Heroine.
    They don't seem to care in the least if they get caught, or who knows about it, who they steal from, etc.

    Legalizing Meth, or Opiates would be disastrous, IMO.
    It is an avalanche of an epidemic. At least getting arrested saves some lives.
    I don't know the answer, but I can not agree with legalizing these types of drugs.
    I think it would turn this Nation into a cesspool of junkies far more than it is now, at least until they all started dying off.....
