I think that legalizing weed is surrendering. The only reason this disgusting drug is legalized because our countries cannot educate and prevent enough. No. Wrong. I mean it is true. But there is another reason: Money. Just because you can make a lot of money from it; losers can smoke that terrible, terrible drug. Why is this text called ‘Legalized it’?
Because we should legalize all drugs. Why the secrecy? Why the prosecution? Let people destroy theirs bodies? Why not? Because it’s addicting? Why do keep this stuff in the shadows instead of being open and honest about it? Cocaine, LSD, and any other drug. (I only know these two.) Let the people consume it? We could end the war on drugs and let people do what they want. Okay. I stop now.
I once heard: “You cannot win the war on drugs. You have to fight him anyway.” The war on drugs gets crushed by reality: We don’t do enough prevention. We must tell people that curiosity and drugs are a bad match. People do drugs for the dumbest reason and the World Health Organization has to step in and help the nations out. The war on drugs must become a war on junkies.
We should not allow addicts to take their drugs in secured areas and institutions. Junkies must be encouraged to do rehab and fight their addiction. We should go into schools and inform the people. Our nations are not doing enough. Otherwise we see what happens: Black markets and endless cycles of destruction. People had a choice to do drugs and with the first one consumed – they loose it.
The answer to weed is neither legalization nor prosecution; it’s clarification. But it’s the old dance. We got billions for military but not a few 100k for some prevention programs. In the end we spend billions on the war on the drugs where millions for helping programs would do so much more. Nobody sees the madness in this. For my part? I drink juice, walk a few times a week and when I need a few minutes of a clear state of mind I shower. That are my drugs. Harmless and more effective than any other drug.
