    P&T's BS doesn't count. I want something to read - not just picking on you for not giving a source, I'd actually like to have something credible to reference.

    Obviously inhaling chemical soot and burnt particulate matter is not good for you and I hope no one needs a Dr. to tell them that, but these days the smoking bans are almost as crazed as that loony liberal asbestos scare.

    Market Control through Legit business

    In case you haven't noticed most of us here don't agree with legalizing it. You can argue till your blue in the face and I personally wont change my opinion, why? Because of what I see on any given day of work.
    Might I suggest then that you try not of relying on your emotionally charged likely more irrational personal anecdotal and unscientific experience with the every day "dangers of drugs" that everyone is already aware of. Instead apply some logic and common sense to the problem to find a real solution.

    The stronger restrictions are on a prohibited commodity the higher the black market value goes i.e. the price of the drugs/service will continue to go up the tougher the laws are. This is partly because the fines and punishments are more severe and therefore more complex organized crime must form and take in even more money to keep the trade going.

    If there are no restrictions on a commodity the free market naturally lowers the price and the need for consumers to steal to support their bad habit goes away.
    Low profit margins and lack of threat of severe punishment make it so organized crime can no longer compete and eventually the manufacture and abuse of such commodities dissipates.

    With the intimate services industries service providers naturally get off the streets and form businesses, which protect them and their clients and makes it so street criminals can not compete with legit business.

    This is obvious in Nevada where there are very wealthy brothels that have lots of security and in house doctors etc. to protect themselves and their clients from embarrassment and negligence law suits. There is NO government intervention or regulation necessary when individuals choose the responsibility to protect their rights.

    Who determines what is wrong or harmful? 400 years ago blasphemy was wrong, 70 years ago drinking alcohol was wrong. you're right no one has the civil right to harm anyone else, but i have the right to do whatever I want with my own body, my own money, and my own time regardless of what you think is 'wrong or hamful' Let me ask you this: the sun is widely known to cause cancer should we make a law that mandates everyone must stay inside at all times?
    Above quote from SMITTY^^

    So to take a quote from Michaal Savage, If it feels good it must be ok and should be legal???
    Well then , lets all Fuk sheep and horses. OH WAIT they did and a guy in Seattle got crushed to death by a horse he was FUKING...
    If it feels good, it must be legal

    The views and comments of E-man are mine and mine alone and therefore might not reflect the views of others or people in my current department. As such since this is still America I can post what I want without fear of retribution. I think.

    It's simple. Informing the police and recruiting allies is important because when the issue does get brought to the forefront politically, like it did in Nevada this year, the police associations actively OPPOSE any form of decrim or legalization.

    I realize that not all of you support the Chiefs of Police and the other organizations that come out in favor of the War on Drugs, but the fact still remains that they do.

    Therefore, the more LEOs we can get on our side, the more "legitimate" we become because then we can point to the LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) cops as a counter argument to the Drug-Warrior cops.

    When the issue is citizens vs. cops, on-the-fence people tend to side with the cops. When the issue is cops vs cops, then perhaps people will stop and think, and really look closely at the issue of ending the War on Drugs.

    I hope that makes sense.
    Nope.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.

    If I had been at home instead of work, you that law enforcement/corrections thing that those DJ's luv so much I would have called in. I would gladly have a verbal sparring match with all the questions and comments they made. Hopefully next time I will get the chance. I love some of their arguments it's like a 15 year kid that busted and is trying to justify everything.
