My friend, you make some very great points. I am totally with you on this, but I do have say this...
If "users" decided to take matters into their own hands, and use violence, you know what would happen...the government would now use these violent
acts as even more reason to crack down on users, and tighten its strangle hold on our rights. The "drug war" right now is B.S. I mean think about
it, if the government really wanted to stop all drugs from entering the country, dont you think they could search EVERY car, truck, train, plane, boat
that enters the U.S.? It may sound like a lot, but if they have the resources to invade, occupy and bomb multiple countries at the same time, I'm
sure they could find the manpower for such searches. But without all the drug busts, court costs and fines, the legal system would be missing out on
huge amounts of revenue. Its kind of like the tobacco industry...its been proven that tobacco leads to disease and illness, so from a moral
standpoint, shouldn't it be banned? Shouldnt the government be looking out for the health and well being of its citizens? Not when there is huge
revenue at stake. Sorry, but the government cares more about $$$ then it does its citizens.
