You claimed he said making drugs cheap would stop crime. You did not expand on the comment. He NEVER said that at all...so you both engaged in exaggeration. You never explained or justified yours. So, you are more wrong (and you actually know it) than HW. And that is usually the case because you engage is slurs and RW orthodox hate...he doesn't.

Sorry, that comment about unemployment doesn't seem to be connected to the conversation. And why do you want to single out dealers. They are just trying to make a living...just like you are trying to make excuses for continuing and program that never should have existed.

Do you understand the concept of a responsive post at all?

It is a Hell of a lot more than just interesting. Aside from the fact that it demonstrates an absolute ignorance of several major disciplines relevant to the discussion, I continue to wonder why you are so set on defending BAD policy that never should have existed.

It appears that you have your mind made up and wouldn't appreciate being confused by facts.

Sorry, no such luck on your part. If you do not wish to discuss the issue like a rational adult do us all a favor and just don't comment.

the catch is, they have to take a lethal dose.

You don't seem to know much about the topic and you aren't asking very intelligent questions. Perhaps you should read more and post less in topics you are ignorant of (beyond RW/Christian evangelical propaganda).
Interesting? How does seeking help for addiction differ from the U.S.? How long has the U.S. offered free medical help for addiction? Will decriminalizing stop addiction in this country? Will it stop those without money from committing crimes to get the money for drugs? In a country as small as Portugal, containment and treatment is far easier than here. In a country our size, with massive unemployment, the need for drug money becomes massive. There's no way around that. It's only when society finds drug use unacceptable will the problem begin to disappear.

Rational, would be admitting you made a statement that was stupid, and then owning up to it. Irrational, is trying to find a way to cover your stupidity up. Much like your doing now!!

At the turn of last century, drugs were legal. We weren't a nation of addicts, and powerful, brutal drug cartels didn't exist.

Nap time was very peaceful.

But you are basically correct. But how much of that was societal pressure? It just wasn't accepted.

I did read an account once that the Coca-Cola company removed the cocaine because southern law enforcement were convinced that the cocaine stimulated sexual desire in the black population and greatly increased the incidence of rape..
