Totally agree with you, legalise all drugs and watch the interest fade...
Portugal did it and guess what,? drug use and addiction significantly less.
You really have to wonder about the agenda and IQ of people and governments
still flogging that dead horse...

There is a video of a scientist that's trying to use that as a gas for humane animal slaughter. It's quite convincing.

Why someone would willing subject to that...I don't know.

Terrible.

Animals are not killed by the gas. They die because of a lack of oxygen. Helium would accomplish the same thing but it's more expensive.

The first time I saw the non-medical/dental use of laughing gas was as a propellant in cans of whipping cream.

Previously, CO2 was used. Using it as a propellant in a pressurized food product and easy for kids to abuse goes a bit too far the other way.

I'd support banning it as a propellant in food. It isn't used much any more for anything else, these days.

Problem is ban it and kids go back to doing what they did in my day and start huffing paint and solvents,

You just shift the problem onto a more dangrous substance.

They've pretty much gotten solvents out of paint, these days, but I see you point.

Dihydrogen Monoxide poisoning is an issue that requires attention, it needs to be banned.

The Gov. whole push is to keep people drinking booze, if alternatives are used, the revenue drop would be catastrophic. Its a bit like the old Soviet economy and the revenues based on Vodka.

Yes, it most certainly does! It's a terrible, terrible substance, responsible for countless deaths. Think of the children!

Doesn't make sense.
Legalize and tax all recreational drugs. More money all the way around and alcohol would still be #1.

Do that and watch theft and burglary related crimes go through the roof. That approach would only work in a moneyless communist system.

I don't see the connection.
Ever look at what alcohol prohibition did to crime rates?

What do you think low level drug dealers would do for money? Get a job?

I don't really care.

Ever look at what happened to crime rates when alcohol prohibition was repealed?

Yes but that was a different era and a different economy. I'm all for legalizing drugs across the board, just not in our current system. That would be catastrophic right now.

Yes but that was a different era and a different economy.

A substance (ethanol) which people had been consuming legally for millennia was made illicit. As a result, crime rates spiked because criminals could take advantage of decreased supply. When prohibition was repealed the incentive for criminal exploitation decreased and crime rates fell.

How have the laws of economics changed? Supply and demand doesn't work any more?

I once heard a satanic radio show made people take it to win a prize until a contestant flat out died. No one should ever take this evil substance.

There is a big difference though between alcohol and crack.
