And your point is?
Just becuase a government outlaws something doesn't mean it was the right thing to do.[/quote)
It does, however, make it THE LAW. You are familiar with law? Nations governed by laws and not men, et. al.?
I could see slavery as being outlawed as the right thing to do. Or fighting pits, were people or dogs die, as the right thing to do, becuase people are getting hurt. But when you outlaw a drug that actually pasifies [sic] your people, and makes them a little more peaceful, then maybe it is wrong.
So you're in favor of a drug that pacifies the popluace?
I read some articles about this. First it said that the Hague had outlawed potent forms of Cannibis. Weed with 15% thc and higher. And yes it did outlaw tourists from visiting the pot shops, making the cafes members only, holland members only.
My question is why? Why would they do this, when cafes are such a draw for people from around the world? Are they going to just rely on tulip sales and hookers now? Next they will probobly elliminate the brothels too, watch.
Eliminating drugs and hookers. Wow. Madness, yes?
Just becuase [sic] someone in the Holland government decided to impose their will, or to bow down to the demans [sic] of the global community, doesn't mean that what I said wasn't a good solution to the problems in the world.
The jails are past capacity. People are unfairly forced into plea bargains, where they do minamal [sic] jail time, and that is before they ever see a judge. They are made to believe that what they did was wrong, and a year or two in prison is the best thing for them. They do not go to trial, there is no jury. You are threagtened [sic] that you will have to pay for a jury if you ask for one, with a longer sentance [sic]. Why?
Never talk to the police, understand your rights under the constitution, graduate from high school so you're not a moron, and you can avoid this.
[qote] I know the reason you are so steadfast in your opinions, in fact it is that same steadfastness that halts the world, jams the jails, and ruins lives. Some poor kid smoking a joint, has to come out of jail a felon. Unhirable. In india, those people are called untouchables. Is that what you want to have happen to your kid, the first time they try a joint?
If you are unaware that smoking weed makes you un-hireable, then you're un-hireable because you're stupid. It's not the weed, it's that you're an idiot.
All over the world people can go to their local pharmacies and buy whatever it is that they need, without a prescription. they need antibiotics, they walk up to the counter. They need pain pills they walk up to the counter. No hassle. Here in my neck of the world. You have to go to the doctor. If you don't have insurance, it cost [sic] a hundred dollars (or whatever your doctor charges). Then they give you a presciption [sic], then you better hope, if you have insurance, that it covers the medication you need. If you don't have insurance, your screwed if there are no generic brands.
The problem is people abuse them and use them when they don't need them, and that makes for antibiotic-resistant strains of viruses/bacterial infections. I'm sure you're not a biologist or have a PharmD (I'm completely certain you're not), so the piece you're missing is that wide-spread use of antibiotics just makes for really really antibiotic-resistant bacteria. You know not of which you speak. Don't try.
Oh, and by the way. The same drug companies that charge horrible high prices for drugs, sells [sic] them to other countries that I just described for cheap. Man, keep defending that, its what you get paid for.
See my reply above.
Now as for the other things i mention that you glossed over to make your point, and tell me that i was wrong. Mexico has a problem, and only mexicans can solve that problem, or become slaves to it. Imagine how scary that would be. Imagine your government doing nothing to help you, becuase [sic] they are either bought off, or shills to a more powerful neighbor, bent on distributing cocain [sic] through the gettos [sic] of america in the form of crack, to break the will of its former slaves. Did you ever notice black people live where no one can see them? And if you do see them, it is with your window rolled up and your doors locked. Why is this?
Well F321 give me you one fact, and I will top it with ten reasons. Reason, now that is where you find the good questions.
Well, black people are in the fix they're in because of their culture and the democratic party. But that's another thread.
