Prompted by “Meth as a byproduct of prohibition”: http://www.drugwarrant.com/2015/10/meth-as-a-byproduct-of-prohibition/
Here’s one idea that makes too much sense for anyone to seriously consider: Legalize amphetamines for adults. Divert some of the money currently spent on enforcement toward the treatment of addicts. Save the rest. Watch the black markets dry up, and with them the itinerant crime, toxicity and smuggling. Cold and allergy sufferers get relief. Cops can concentrate on other crimes. Pharmacists can go back to being health-care workers, instead of deputized drug cops.
Everybody wins, save of course for those who can’t bear the prospect of letting adults make their own choices about what they put into their bodies.
“Drug prohibition addiction is a serious issue preventing meth legalization (e.g. recognizing the fact that Certain Drug Prohibition cannot possibly be constitutional by any rationale in the land of the free).
Beneficiaries from the war on some drugs need to lie and effectively steal taxpayer money to get their prohibition fix.
Society (especially the mainstream media which often reinforces general public impressions by refusing to challenge prohibition legitimacy, so they can get their tragic news fix from those beneficiaries usually on the front lines of tragic events) enables that addiction.
We need an intervention now.
Regulations (i.e. textured prohibitions) are every bit as ineffective (e.g. teens still getting alcohol in their black market situation) and form mass rights infringement (i.e. severe law abuse and the horrific slippery slope legal precedence grossly exacerbating the problem like a destructive flood).
Unhealthy stress is the source of abuse (even the prohibitionist U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse firmly stated that fact back in 1995).
Allowing society to bypass the obligatory unalienable right to liberty needed to prevent law abuse (as was nationally intended by revolutionary force) and define risk by law (to define risk is to define liberty) is illegal and foolish – yet popularly embraced like a runaway train.
To prevent the most serious risk from abusive law, education is the only proper risk management solution in a nation with the aforementioned right.
Healthy stress is the destination of the wise and civilized.
Responsible flexibility required for healthy stress requires a judicially recognized unalienable right to liberty.
That judicial recognition clearly exists in the form of amendment nine (“The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”)
That judicial recognition clearly has been disarmed illegally and devastatingly (no case can be won via amendment nine anymore, because it no longer constitutionally represents that right).
That devastation is the basis for abusive law and the widespread and deep unhealthy stress prompting meth (etc.) abuse.”
Liberty Shield (i.e. being a scientific constitutionalist) firmly addresses law abuse in constitutional form, noting I recently refined my informational roots on the subject.
Respect Cannabis firmly addresses not only the inevitable legality of cannabis, but also the serious issue involving intentional perception alteration itself, noting I recently refined my informational roots on the subject.
Together (including enough public pressures in the right areas), Liberty Shield and Respect Cannabis can promptly end Certain Drug Prohibition (saving millions of lives in the process).
