You know what drug kills the most people every year? Nicotine, and it's legal! Let's make all the drugs legal!
Everything he said is right, though.
I agree with the idea of legalizing pretty much every drug, but he built a massive contradiction right into what he was saying that I hadn't thought about before. How much worse would crack be if advertising agencies could work on promoting it?
Still not as bad as, say, big macs.

I'm tired of this issue ALWAYS being laid out in such stark terms. If you want to legalize heroin, that's a valid point of view, and better than what we're doing, but legalization is not the only alternative to an expensive, life-destroying, counter-productive "war on drugs". We could put more resources into treatment, eliminate draconian penalties for making a phone call, stop shooting down planes with families in them. Without the political will, even a good idea becomes a strawman to be used against making any changes at all.
