the ENTIRE drug "war" is unconstitutional.
Im not seeing how this is possible so if you could explain how you arrived at this point? (serious request and not trying to be an ass).
Also - If its your position there should be no laws that make drug use illegal, do you then support local / state laws making drug use legal?
there were ABSOLUTELY NO DRUG LAWS when the constitution was written. and the mindset of the framers of the constitution can BEST be summed up by this
quote from a serious founder beyond reproach.
The Constitution also states anything not specifically granted to the Federal Government is reserved to the states, which did in fact have their own
drug laws through the years. The tipping point occurred in Utah, specifically Salt Lake City before it was a state. They banned marijuana based on
their perception that only Mexicans used it and it causes issues. Enter the businesses that wanted competition removed (hemp vs other). The Feds then
introduced and passed the Controlled substance Act.
Personally speaking do I think drugs should be illegal? Depends on what the drug is, its effects and where it is done at and who is present when it is
The trade off should it be abused is a lengthy denial of a drivers license, denial of insurance coverage for motor vehicles and any health related
issues to the drug use can be denied by insurance companies.
"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the
souls of those who live under tyranny."
Excellent quote and I think we see it in todays society. Specifically New York City and their politicians and the 1st Lady and her quest against
certain food types.
While I agree the war on drugs is a massive failure, and that mandatory sentencing guidelines are also a disaster (as well as discriminatory), I don't
think its appropriate for this Administration to rule by executive order.
The moment that is allowed, instead of being challenged, where does it stop?
Search and Seizure?
etc etc ............
