Thanks for a bit of sanity in all this.
All the rest?
Seriously? This is what you want 'legal'? Why not just go out and shoot them and put them out of their misery.
You stupid sogs.
METHAMPHETAMINE HAS A HIGH POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE. IT SHOULD THUS BE TRIED ONLY IN WEIGHT REDUCTION PROGRAMS FOR PATIENTS IN WHOM ALTERNATIVE THERAPY HAS BEEN INEFFECTIVE. ADMINISTRATION OF METHAMPHETAMINE FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME IN OBESITY MAY LEAD TO DRUG DEPENDENCE AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PARTICULAR ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUBJECTS OBTAINING METHAMPHETAMINE FOR NON-THERAPEUTIC USE OR DISTRIBUTION TO OTHERS, AND THE DRUG SHOULD BE PRESCRIBED OR DISPENSED SPARINGLY. MISUSE OF METHAMPHETAMINE MAY CAUSE SUDDEN DEATH AND SERIOUS CARDIOVASCULAR ADVERSE EVENTS.

I known only 3 people that had to go to rehab. They all said they were still doing drugs inside the rehab, and they were court ordered! How does that happen?

It is a schedule II narcotic, meaning its valid for certain medical conditions and can only be authorized by a Doctor with a written prescription requiring a signature of the Doctor (they cant phone it in / use a hospital order system). It also means there are strict guidelines on manufacturing and distribution / delivery.
Now, are you telling us that meth users are going to go to their doctor in hopes of getting meth prescribed to them for a medical condition they dont have?
The "its legal in the US" position is a bit off base since it doesnt take that aspect into account.

A lot of libertarians and conservatives would disagree with me on the treatment approach for addiction to drugs that Portugal took.
But, IF that money is going to be spent anyway on a law enforcement approach to addiction, then it would stand to reason that treating addiction with that same money would make sense, if we are to pivot decriminalization that is.

Here is the other downfall of laws like that: Employment.
Most companies, in states that allow for the use of say Pot, still have policies that are 0 drug tolerant and if one pees hot, they may still be fired or not get employed. Last time a case like that went up through the courts, was from Colorado.
