    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    Agreed. That's why I expounded on the thought in a later post:

That said, selling heroin to someone is very different from using heroin. Just like selling a gun is very different from using a gun. If a person is a convicted felon, disallowed from owning a weapon, then the seller of the gun who KNOWS the person is a convicted felon is also doing something illegal, and thus is responsible for the action of selling the gun. It is very different from selling a gun to using it in a crime. The person who uses it in a crime is responsible for the use in the crime - NOT the seller, the user. The seller is responsible for selling the gun illegally.

    The drug seller is responsible for selling the drugs. I don't really care much about that crime, and think it should be drastically reduced in priority for drug enforcement personnel. I would rather see the drug seller telling law enforcement who uses it than the other way around. I would rather make the user so afraid of the consequences of use that the drug seller has no one to sell to.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    Although the government cannot and will not make it illegal to actually "USE" drugs, it is a crime to have them.

    Your logic is a bit flawed though. You ASSUME that stiffer penalties will dissuade users from using when, in actuality, it will have no effect at all and you should know that. People sell their children for Christ sake.... what will adding some prison time do?

    I would say legalize and tax the ever lovin' sh!t out of it BUT.... it would just line more political pockets (a'la casino money for schools)

    I don't think my logic is flawed. Some people, certainly, will still START to use, and get to the point that they'd sell their kids. I know of no statistical or anecdotal evidence that someone has robbed or sold their kids to get their FIRST illegal drug - only to maintain it. If we can stop them up front, it will work.

    That won't fix those who are out there now, but MOST drug users are not at the point of selling their kids.
