A good smack in the face with reality is all I'm saying.
It doesn't work is what I'm saying. Reefer Madness didn't stop no one, no how. Pictures of venereal warts didn't stop no one from screwing.
You can't make a gay straight and you can't stop an addict from becoming an addict.
Just say no don't do nothin'.
Every addict ever made the decision to take the first hit, drink, etc...
Hey try this you won't go to jail,
Rampant sex! Oh Noes!
In addition, sex will become even more rampant with far more partners, and diseases will thrive in the industry.

Baltimore sounds like a real utopia. It will be full of drug addicts and crack whores which of course they will blame on systemic racism. What a bunch a geniuses.
I'm just addressing the average kid type situation.
Not many, obviously. There are very many addicts. Many in prison and many out.
For some, the threat of jail time and obeying rules kept them on the straight path.
Who said that? Did I say that? Where and when?
When it comes to drug death drugs are not the problem?
You implied it with your touting "Drugs and sex for all !!" there are no consequences. You also implied no one obeys laws because you yourself were immoral and broke laws everyone else must have as well.
Should your taxes help me when I lose at the craps table next time?
No. What I'm saying is that threat of prison does not reduce drug use.
Cause you're basically saying that doing drugs is a gamble, one that you made out ok on, but that helping the losers on that wager is what matters.
