    Is your position based on personal moral convictions or on cost/benefit analyses?
    Cost benefit analysis, which I'm still working through. Lateralus is most helpful.

    Nixon's War on Drugs was born of ignorance. Drugs will always be a problem, so I would sleep more soundly if my state and nation took responsibility of controlled substances like marijuana and ecstasy. I doubt doing so would halt unregulated trafficking of drugs, but handing MJ over to private companies or big pharma would put a dent in the drug cartels. I wonder what sort of reaction we would get out of the cartels - something has to shift. Over-all, I would like to live in a place where people took ownership of their decisions by investigating the consequences, rather than being scared of drug experimentation because they were warned by anti-drug campaigns. The only campaign I've seen that's even relevantly accurate is targeted toward meth addicts. It seems more truthful than most of the prior campaigns, which is a sign we are reaching an understanding about controlled substances, methinks. At least in my area.

    I've heard horror stories about X and I doubt it will ever be used clinically. Here, we can see where combatants against the war on drugs start to lose steam because it seems that only a few drugs offer the potential to be beneficial to those with special needs. And that's just potential.

    Don't legalize Exstasy. Legalize DMT instead.

    Perhaps you misuderstood what I wrote. In fact, I stated there is no such thing.

    Welcome back.

    Welcome back.
    How is saying that alcohol can't be contaminated relevant? MDMA can't be contaminated, heroin can't be contaminated, and cocaine can't be contaminated technically speaking.

    You're asking the wrong person. That wasn't my idea. Alcohol has nothing to do with ecstasy. It's not even in the same classification, physical state or manufacturing routine.

    I take it you didn't read the entire thread.

    What chemical substances are in heroin and cocaine?

    (I bet I could "technically" make it happen.)

    Also, how are you one of the first 40 members if you joined in Jan 2011?

    Heroin and cocaine are made of each respectively... Cocaine is refined through coca leaves and heroin is derived from opium just concentrated morphine.

    So what exactly did you mean when you said alcohol wasn't contaminated during prohibition?
    I was of the understanding that you meant exactly what you said. I was also under the impression that to make your claim factually correct, one would have to consider that alcohol is technically alcohol and that for it to be alcohol, it can be nothing else, which is not relevant because it has nothing to do with what people actually got when they bought liquor during prohibition.

    I am sorry for reacting harshly, especially if I misinterpreted you... it was rude.

    I neither use my old account nor do I wish to be associated with it, but I am not a newb here.

    The relevance of saying that prohibiting drugs leads to the drugs being more dangerous because of not being regulated is straight forward and alcohol during prohibition is one example, the other examples are numerous in drugs that are currently criminal to possess, especially ecstasy.
