Some may call it a stupid question.
The topic of drug use came up in a conversation, and I was told how people should be allowed to make their own decisions on their use of drugs.

I do't know about legalizing that sheet but i don't want to see the rest of the usa do like Californians have done and let the government provide free needles and crack pipes everywhere. Regardless, "I don't want it near schools! I don't want it sold to children! That's an infamia,"

I see the druggies and tweakers outside my window every single day. They will happily turn any paradise into the worse slums, and won't even bat an eye. And what do they do with their feces? I smell that more than I see them!

Any Biden-for-brains knows that this is a stupid question, even for a blog.

Yes, in Portugal drugs are decriminalised...
Since the 2000s, Mexican drug cartels including Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán's Sinaloa Cartel, Los Zetas, and the Gulf Cartel, have been establishing their presence in Portugal.
Yet, Portugal's law removed incarceration, but people caught possessing or using illicit drugs may be penalised by regional panels made up of social workers, medical professionals and drug experts. The panels can refer people to drug treatment programs, hand out fines or impose community service...
And the question is why no other country followed Portugal's example?
Because it is not as good as it is made believe...

I'm not interested in throwing addicts in jail, however, I reckon that full legalisation would to a legal version of preying on losers. Suits pushing drugs harder than the dealers ever did using the government, courts and media that they own.

Basically put I'm skeptical of it turning out like Portugal and actually becoming more like the opioid crisis in America. The law will be used by the forces of corruption to prey upon losers in a way that would make a heroin dealer blush.

Maybe in 20 years if somehow everything works out well with the new industries and technologies which all amount to a higher standard of living. But for the moment preying on losers is what most people believe in because things are going down the shitpan. One bad turn deserves another is the spirit of the day.

So long as the real world means that nothing you want is ever going to happen then nothing you want is ever going to happen. Liberality will not happen where people don't have any dreams and they're just a f*cking gristlehead. All dreams turning to dust is absolutely no context for liberty, it is a recipe for being goosestepped into misery and bloodshed.

What you'd need is to have so much opportunity in general across society that it's more like the 1960s. And people can afford to ask what great music was ever written without drugs? Liberality has much to do with artistic license none of which goes with the survivalist licking piss of a nettle. Nowadays it's so easy to be a c*nt all the time no wonder they're ten-a-penny.

legalizing illegal drugs is a sign of stupidity of any city state or country. the druggies end up loosing money. then u would basically also have to go thru the system and throw out millions of drug cases.

On the contrary, that says more about your character, attitude and your mean spirited nature than it does about the OP and/or his question.

And far from being a stupid question it's actually a really really important one.

It's not the drug addicts that have turned your neighbourhood into a slum, they're symptomatic.

As someone else on here said (sorry I can't remember your name), Portugal is the country to look to for one answer at least. So far their strategy is working really well and as a result many other countries have been/ are watching with interest. I was watching documentary on this a few years ago and it's incredible what they've achieved and how many (addicts) lives they've changed for the better as a result...

considering very strong prescription drugs are available to some and they also get sold on the black market...i think it's happen already....they just use a different name and it's just tablets instead of needleswow

Have you ever been around people dependent on drugs, Blathin?
The win in Portugal is that less die of overdose and bad quality drugs...
The presence of all serious drug cartels there isn't something that deserves admiration.
If your child or someone close to you starts taking drugs you won't be so relaxed about the topic.

I think we're all surrounded by people heavily dependent on drugs. Casual recreational drug use in the norm in society, even you admit on your profile to occasionally taking a recreational drug.

What about when alcohol was an illegal drug? The era of prohibition?

At the end of the progressive era they tried to instill an age of discipline that resulted in two world wars and the Holocaust. The establishment was terrified of the freedoms and luxuries that modern society made possible so it manufactured a crisis to get people when they're down. How else do we turn people into a stern father without vital reason? Invent a reason to be punitive and unkind because nothing a lowlife likes more than lowering the status of other lowlifes.

Our pre-war establishment were more like China is today. No drugs, no porn. But in reality you're better off wanking, snorting coke and working in a call centre than doing a so-called productive job where the apartment block falls down after two years. The Chinese have managed to channel all their people's free time and rights to a private life into a collapsed bridge. All their nationalist discipline is bullshit because you're still better off with free society and actual pioneers like Elon Musk. Where's all that discipline going if not to produce a nation of mindless bots? Things like drugs are often the price you have to pay for creativity. You have to be softer otherwise people don't come up with anything creative or new.

Capitalists have worked this out because you can declare yourself legally bankrupt. It might not be pleasant but in a certain sense you're getting better than you deserve. You don't go to debtors prison. Why? Because if you don't give people the benefit of the doubt then nothing happens unless it's been done a million times before. The society will end up in danger by playing it safe like covid zero. You'll lose from the chilling effect of strict laws and harsh punishment.

I'm not a daily illegal drug user.

I have seen and heard much about the illegal drug issue throughout America lately.
It's in away an interesting question, as to legalize or have stricter punishments brought down on the users and dealers.
Anyway, it was interesting reading different view points.

At any rate if you must have strict laws then you need to do it through crime detection. It's that people think they're going to get caught which deters crime not the harsh punishment that comes with being really bad at catching criminals. The will to let's just say guilty and cut out their tongue that so often comes with not really knowing if you've got the right guy. To deter crime you need to make it understood that people who are actually guilty can be caught rather than mutilating the guy who probably didn't do it but you desperately need the result.
