    And the video addresses the similarities between pharmaceuticals and street drugs if you watch it.

    They've sucked dick for money to pay back the bookies who are about to break their legs. Gambling is one of the most addictive behaviors in which humans engage.

    Drug dealers don't beg for customers. People try things on their own. I'm not saying give it away for free, but making it prohibited takes away all government regulation and puts regulation in the hands of the dealers.

    You can think that. I think it is better for society to keep some drugs illegal.

    The problem is making something illegal that is made from completely legal substances that can be mixed in your kitchen.

    I don't think gambling harms society as much as hard drugs do.

    Is letting everyone able to buy heroin on a whim, just by going to a store, better than keeping it illegal? You have to weigh the negatives and positives.

    I know I don't want to be able to buy heroin that easily, because I would have a better chance of getting addicted to it.

    You honestly wouldn't try heroin because it's illegal? Shouldn't you not want to try it because it's dangerous and dirty and addictive?

    How is that a problem? And you're only talking about meth, not crack-cocaine or heroin.

    I never said that you should be able to go to a store and buy it on a whim. I just don't think that someone should spend half their life in jail because they bought it. Right now, anyone can buy it on a whim. If it were at least decriminalized then the government could regulate it.

    Yeah, I was only talking about meth, but I don't understand how you don't see that enforcing that is a problem. I've seen plenty of people do cocaine without getting addicted and crack is just another method of using cocaine. It's ridiculous to give significantly harsher penalties for crack than they do cocaine just because it's better and cheaper. Likewise meth is an extension of that.

    That's why I don't want to try it, but if it's right in front of my face, I am more likely to give in. Maybe I had a bad night and I go to the store and buy it, (where as if it remained illegal I wouldn't have because it would be harder, it wouldn't be on a whim) and get addicted.

    That's why I don't want buyers to get punished, I already said that.

    Of course drug enforcement is problematic, I see it as the better solution for hard drugs than the alternative.
