Calling all Progressives and Stoners

By jimbob87 - 10 November 2011 77

At lunch today, near the Merry-go-round in Civic, I happened across a petition calling for a debate on the legalisation of illicit drugs.

They seem to have gathered quite a few signatures so far, which i was assured won’t go onto some type of police database!

Anyone wanting to help lose the War on Drugs should get on down there and sign up.

What’s Your opinion?

Wow… while they’re at it why don’t they try to legalise rape and murder?

Idiots.

Are you trolling or a moron? serious question and those are the only options.

So you expect everybody to just agree that the legalisation of illicit drugs is a good idea…? Not much point of a forum if people can’t express opinions! My point was, it’s illegal for a reason. So enlighten me, what is your problem with my harmless comment?

Why is it illegal? Is the question you should asking. I think you will find that most drugs the Australian Govt has banned was legislated off the back of American/British drug policy. Drugs themselves, pros and cons, have never really been debated openly by Parliament. I dont take kindly to people banning things when conclusive reasons haven’t been provided as to why.

We ban things based on research completed overseas by foreign governments who have their own agendas. That’s what I am concerned about.

I mean jeeze, it was one of first plants that came over with the first fleet! Used extensively in this country until it was banned in the 1920’s. Never to be reviewed again. Doesn’t that seem wrong to you?

That you’re calling people idiots when they express a perfectly valid opinion?

Have you actually considered this issue? Or are you just a naive 70 year old who says ‘drugs are bad’. I dare you to compare drug use to rape to a young girl who has been raped, or a family who has had their child murdered. It’s the most abhorrently disrespectful thing I’ve heard on this website to date.

Again… are you unaware that drugs kill people? That people become addicted and are unable to function as normal, contributing members of society? That drugs destroy their lives and those of the people around them…? Drug abuse is responsible for a lot of the sh*t that is wrong with society. Saying that people should be able to freely consume this crap is abhorrently disrespectful.

Well done, we’re almost there…

Now, what is the cause of these problems? Is it perhaps having to resort to crime to feed their addiction? Is it the impurities of the drugs which cause violent reactions? Or, perhaps it’s the multi-million dollar profits the drug makers and dealers make, and the crime associated in protecting that investment?

Now, stay with me here.. What effect do you think legalisation might have on these issues?

Moreover, do you honestly think that individuals that smoke marijuana represent the most dangerous criminals in society?

Go back to church.

Okay, I will take it your response is you are both a morn and trolling.

The fact that you liken the inhalation of a herb to rape and murder shows that it is not worth entering into a debate with you.

‘Illicit drugs’ refers to much more than just marijuana. Never seen the effects that manufactured drugs have on people or their families?

Hey – let’s have the argument about whether or not drugs should be legal. Again.

chewy14 3:33 pm 10 Nov 11

No chance of this happening.

Although It would be funny if at the same time as the government is trying to restrict gambling, cigarettes and alcohol, they relaxed restrictions on currently illegal drugs.

Portugal legalised heroin. It was successful.

Successful in what? Making it Legal? That’s usually the result of legalising something.

Yeah lets not change legislation that clearly doesnt work.

Idiot.

a) Obviously sarcasm and
b) Prohibition of illicit drugs “works”…?
or
c) Was there supposed to be a comma in your sentence, suggesting “Let’s not change legislation, that clearly doesn’t work?”
