I'm wondering as to your opinions on drug prohibition, whatever form it may take in your country or locality.

I think people should be free to consume what ever drug they want to if they dont hurt other people. The USA pretty much lost war on drugs as gangs and cartels keep rising in power. and people being put to jail for non-voilent drug related offences is evil fucked up. Just like those private prisons.

my hometown's gone to shit not because of drugs, but because of drug trafficking. if people could just buy drugs at a pharmacy I truly believe the world would be a better place.

Sadly, as prohibition has taken drug distribution out of the hands of honest folks and put it into the hands of many a time dangerous drug lords (they can't afford not to be. Street law prevails in this business.), places can go to shit because of drug trafficking.

I'm pretty indifferent about the whole thing, although the amount of tax money spent on it does bother me a little.

The crusade against marijuana bothers me the most.
"Each year, enforcing laws on possession costs more than $3.6 billion, according to the American Civil Liberties Union."
(https://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/29/opinion/high-time-the-injustice-of-marijuana-arrests.html?op-nav)

We shouldn't be spending that kind of money on a drug much less dangerous than alcohol, especially when the economy could profit off of it!
"A mature marijuana industry could generate up to $28 billion in tax revenues for federal, state, and local governments, including $7 billion in federal revenue: $5.5 billion from business taxes and $1.5 billion from income and payroll taxes."

I think drugs are cringe (alc and cigs included) but I also think every sovereign citizen should be able to decide for himself if he wants to be cringe, as long as he doesn't hurt others. As long as people are sufficiently taught about the dangers of drug abuse, preferably at a young age, everyone can make his own informed decision. Nearly everyone who lights his first cigarette today knows about the dangers involved so if they want to fuck up their lives, who is the government to stop them? Legalize it. I don't care.

I think that police should be taking the addicts off the streets and putting them into mandatory rehab with supervised parole when deemed healthy enough until such time as they can be released. Sounds expensive but it's way cheaper than our current failed system.

You should be able to drugs if you want to. But there should also be less stigma with going to rehab if you need to. And there should be more funding to research the full effects of these drugs, so that everyone can know the side effects and what you can't mix together.

Duterte style policies for the dealers. Taliban style policies for the addicts. This is the way.

nuke the internet, then legalize the drugs.

i mean, legalize them anyway but do both and we're good to go. dopamine addiction is as dangerous as any of them.
