OK. I am not for legalizing all drugs now.

Just decriminalizing them... ALL

I just can't do it. For the future of our kids.

But, I still don't believe people deserve to go to prison.

So, if we decriminalize all drugs, people won't go to prison, but just get a fine. And, a meeting with some people who will offer treatment.

Portugal has been like this since 2001, so go research it. Their society is better off now.

Still disagree?

Fuck, you still disagree.

Legalize the more harmless ones and treat them with the same laws as alcohol. Decriminalize the harder ones. Then while we're at it make the jail systems for other crimes more rehab-based anyway.

People who are on meth don't deserve to go to prison. They don't even deserve to pay the government money in the form of fees. But, that is a compromise I can deal with.

Drugs should be treated like Alcohol, they can work a way around it and set the right laws.
The question is, do they really want to legalize/decriminalize Drugs?

Legality doesn't mean it's smart to use. Duh. People aren't going to run out and try meth just because it's legal. The school programs teaching kids not to use drugs aren't going to end. People will be knowledgeable about what's happening to their bodies when they use drugs, legal or not, and decriminalization means that someone caught with drugs would pay a fine and seek treatment--in Portugal, drugs are considered a social issue, not a legal issue.

Decrimimalizing drugs is fine. But I think weed should be legal as alcohol, still got to be 21 and have a sober driver.

I'm for the legalization of marijuana because it's probably less dangerous than alcohol and its less addicting than cigarettes. In a way, I think that I'm for decriminalising a lot of drugs, because the "War on Drugs" hasn't resulted in anything but overcrowded prisons. I think that we should focus more on people who sell drugs rather than the people who use.

no, I agree. Decriminalisation along the Portuguese model has been tried and tested and works fine. Less stoners, better use of resources and no big drug boom.

Wouldn't it be better to reform the prison system into a rehabilitative one and deprivatize? Just curious, are you still against legalizing and regulating all of them if the provision is that hard/dangerous ones are regulated so that they may only be marketed for rehabilitation purposes, since most people can't quit cold turkey? Just one more question - you say you want to decriminalize, but then say people should be charged a fine and be directed to treatment - how exactly can you do that if there's no crime committed? 7/10, I have some hope your brain isn't totally fried. :)

Decriminalization means exactly that. No jail time. No prison time. Just a fine fine.

It's not just about money. It's about how they affect people, and some do ruin lives. Look at any of the 'harder' drugs and tell me they're completely harmless. Pot is one of the 'less dangerous' drugs, but slows your reaction time to shit.

Asking for some drugs to be legalized, maybe I can see that happening. But to legalize all drugs? You are a fucking lunatic.

So you're saying all drugs are fine in Portugal, and there are no problems? None at all? Not a single case of drug abuse, even the hard addicting ones? No problems in the family?

Why do I find this very hard to believe :B



Also, why do you keep posting thread after thread about legalizing drugs? I'd think by now you'd have given up, since you never seem to get any positive feedback.

well actually, all drugs are decriminalised in Portugal. Possession remains prohibited. Criminal penalties still apply to drug growers, dealers & traffickers.

Gleaned from the WIKI on this topic...
Posssession sees one with a summons to appear in front of a committee which has a range of different sanctions possible, including fines, suspension of right to practice if in a licencesd profession (like taxi driver, medical doctor, etc.), bans on visiting certain places and foreign travel, periodic reporting and confiscation of possessions and other sanctions. If a person is addicted they may be admitted to a rehabilitation facility or given community service.

Drug use among adolescents decreased, street value of drugs decreased, justice system workloads decreased, cannibis and cocaine use increased (they put these statistical changes down to more candour from interviewees who were less inclined to hide their use).

Consumption and possession is still illegal but consumers are now regarded as patients and not criminals. So the main change is that jail time is no longer a threat to users and it has been replaced by a system that tries to help people to get away from drugs, not put them in a prison environment where they train for other crimes and have even more risky drug taking opportunities.

I think what should be happening is offering drug-addicts rehab, and criminalizing drug-dealers, especially the ones distributing harder, more dangerous drugs.
