everything should be legal, period.
Drug use won't go up. Those that want to do it are all ready doing it. People prove time and time again that it's not that hard to get.
Focus money on rehab for those that need it.
And tax the hell out of it, but keep the price below black market values.
It would eliminate a lot of violence and crime and wasteful spending.
haha, that was not a shot at carolina either. I was just saying if he lives in wrightsville and can get away with being a closed minded straight edge (which I guess he isnt), then to stay there because most people in other regions don't walk around preaching like that. the pot issue has been dead on the west coast for 25 years.
so, im glad it was ajoke, and I love nc! =)
Focus money on rehab? Like take my money and pay for some heroin fiend to take a vacation every so many months because he keeps slipping off methadone. Screw that dude I'm all for the legalization of certain stuff but I draw my limits, and I definitely don't need to be putting any well earned money into rehab for a junkie.

jail doesn't treat addiction. at all. most prisons have availa ble drugs within them, and 90% or crime comes from people on parole or with records.
if u treat addiction the way it should be treated, it is successful. sometimes.
but our tax money is being used to keep a bunch of drug users that got knocked for a nickle bag in jail every day. the money is ridiculous.
it takes upwards of 100k a year to take care of a state prison inmate.
something to think about.
if u can keep black market value the same as retail, crime comepletely stops. supply and demand. the long crack is illegal the longer people will have to steal to pay for it. us drugs are marked up like 5 million times over
I applaud you conway!! I also love to talk nonsense bull shizzle on this forum just to get a rise out of people. It can be so fun, ya?
The best quote in this whole thread was when Wonton said "Hey its illegal to be naked, But who says there is anything wrong with it?" Classic. I have since used this quote 2 times in conversation. So thanks for the new quote!!
