I actually believe in the legalisation of all drugs because:
- If all drugs are legal the dangerous aspects of most (if not all) drugs falls considerably due to monitoring of purity of substance and proper information.
- In their purest forms, most illegal drugs are less harmful to the person and those around them than alcohol so fuck off everyone who is like “oooooh I drink but I don’t do drugs and judge everyone who does” (yes I realise we don’t have much in the way of particularly pure drugs but still fuck off haters and stop judging).
- The government, if it played its cards right, could make lots of money.
- We could stop the criminal and violent behaviour of drug lords and their cartels around the world. There are many drugs that I’m not sure I could take because of the hundreds of lives each ‘serving’ has cost somewhere. It would be really nice to change that shit - and to provide alternative, safe income opportunities to those people currently employed in the illicit drug trade.
BUT I guess marijuana is a start.
