    Should countries around the world legalise drugs or should they continue to remain illegal? What are some of the pros and cons of doing this?

Re: Drug control/legalization




Drugs are bad. I have seen so many people, even close to home, have their lives ruined by drugs. One boy in my neighborhood died because of marijuana. The Mary Jane caused him to move to cocaine then heroin and eventually he OD'd. Marijuana is the gateway drug and needs to be banned.

@yes or no? 

Just how is alcohol good?
Opium and its extracts were used as painkillers in the 19th century. It has WONDERFUL medical uses. But it is still outlawed in many countries. So, good is not a de facto reason that drugs are banned(or not, for the matter.)

It all depends if it is illegal or not. People sometimes need drugs to cure diseases, but harmful drugs like marijuana should not be legalized. In other words, drugs should only be legalized if they are good. (alcohol, caffeine, penicillin, etc.)

You know, letting drugs kill irresponsible people might be a good reason to legalize it. Many dynasties in China collapsed because people who left the land had no way out.

If there was no other way to pass time, European Union and North America would already have fallen under the invasion of junkies.

Constant danger... People that been close to die will all say you that safety is now their first concern but that life is too short to be filled with only safety. That's the moderation. Doing crazy thing but with moderate intensity.
Competent thiefs do more for the adrenaline shot it gives than for money. It's a good exemple of your point.
But I guess the drugs, and even alcool(At least more moderate than now) should be illegal, it retard a society. It would not fix the problem, it is already far too easy to get this stuff. A way to make bungee more accesible? No. The Gov cannot allow the dangerous activities to be accesible, if someone die in it, the family won't take it good.

@NikoLStak 

The reason is simple: we're bored.

Humans are not meant to live the dull, constricted, safe lives that we do. Our lives are supposed to be filled with danger, the constant threat of death, and deep in our genes we long for that. So, in a completely safe country with relatively rich people, drug use is understandably high (no pun intended).
Not saying it's right, there are better ways...

Re: Drug control/legalization




Let the people ruins their life if they want it so much... Nothing we can do against it, there will always be a way to get drugs. Of course we could make consequence for this extrmely rough to prevent it's use but Amnesty Internationnal(Hippies and ultra liberal shitbags) would crucify the gov. Ll

The question is Why the people want to take it so much? Why they fell the need to use it? 10$/H to wash dishes is not enough for them? How can you de stressed with such a pay for a such easy job?!(I'm talking about teenages here. It's mostly there that drugs discovery happen)

Re: Drug control/legalization




I'm going to assume you meant illegal, dangerous substances- as in, narcotics. No. If, by "legalization", you mean, the right for people to use it as much as they like, no. Absolutely not. They're useful when in the right hands, dangerous when used too much. Just like fire.

One extremely obnoxious thing about debating with pro-marijuana legalization people is the "natural" argument. "It's a plant! It grows from the ground! It's natural! Why shouldn't we have the rights to grow plants and use them however we like?" Because you know what else is natural? Bears, that's what. Why don't you keep one in your garden.

I just wanted to get that argument out of the way, just in case someone uses it. It's based on ridiculously flawed rhetoric, and basically it's stupid. I don't know why that argument is still used anymore.

So anyways. I think it's a pretty simple problem, with all drugs. If they may kill irresponsible people, in no way should they be allowed to be used freely, though I'd very much appreciate not having irresponsible people around. But there's still the value of human life, right?

I wouldn't call that a problem, I want people to discuss more than just cannabis. I was hoping people would elaborate on everything from cocaine to bath salts to Viagra. It's meant to be left for interpretation.

Well by drugs i mean illegal substances. I used the word drugs because of its broad interpretation.

Re: Drug control/legalization




'Drugs' is too general a term. Far too general.
Meth, Bath salts, cocaine? Hell no. Marijuana, I don't know. I've never 'done', any kind of drug, so I don't really know much about them.
Also, what about the use and abuse of normal medical drugs?
