I'm just up for pot, not meth. Anything that will get someone hooked to where they won't be able to function without it is fucked. It's a shame that alcohol is something that is legal but pot isn't when alcohol's effects are a lot worse. I'm sure you've got prostitutes like that a stone's throw from your house, but you don't know that because they aren't in their sanctioned prostitute ranch. They'd be more honest about it if it was a legal deal, same as strippers.

No the irony of states rights is that some states rights would violate other states rights. Hence why drugs, prostitution and the like need to stay a federal matter

Prohibition of drugs SOUNDS good, but just because it sounds good doesn't mean that it is good. It didn't work for alcohol. It didn't work back then, there's no reason to think it would work now with other drugs. What more proof do you need? Besides it wouldn't be legal everywhere. Ron wants the STATES to decide
The problem with that is the people who choose to use drugs effect those who choose not to, that's why things like murder are not legal. People have a right not to be invaded by certain things, drugged up psychos are one of them. If states were to suddenly legalize heroin or meth you would have severe issues. I already hate meth heads as it is, and I'll be damned if I want them invading my life because they can legally do it everywhere. States rights are wel and good, but sometimes a state just makes the wrong decision. As Tadao brought up, slavery was a states rights thing. Do you want that sort of world to come back?

PS Alcohol prohibition was eliminated on a federal level, so your alcohol argument for states rights is at best flawed

PPS I think this board may have its new Coolinator, that'll make Colonel's day

To each their own. I know a lot of stoners who can't function when high, but since there are a lot of 420 fagots screaming in their ear that pot in a non addictive functional drug, they never believe you when you explain to them they are out of control.

I am one of those functional drug addicts. I've done every drug except for smack, yet I'm not addicted and never had an issue with being able to function while on them. Well that is except for the obvious mind fuckers like acid and what not. I've currently been drug free for some 5 years or what not. The only addiction I have is cigarettes and booze. PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY ARE SO READILY AVAILABLE TO ME AT ANYTIME. But who knows.

I live in L.A. and know all about pimps and hookers. Let's not ignore the fact that I'm talking about the girls, not the sex act. Any bitch who is so lazy that she'd rather fuck for money is not anyone you want in your area. TELL ME I'M WRONG! If you can't tell that a hooker is living next to you, then you are not paying attention.

Forgive me I didn't know you had a short attention span, and couldn't read no more than 5 sentences. But surely my argument shouldn't be that difficult for you to comprehend. I'll just assume you were being sarcastic.

You talk about Ron as though you know him and do him a tremendous disservice by being an absolute cock.

I suppose it's only right that he'll never be president.

Ron Paul does say a lot of things that make a lot of sense. The main problem I see is that to do the things he wants to do, we couldn't just elect him president, he would have to be President-For-Life. And that worked out so well in Haiti and Uganda.

The whole r-party is a freaking mess right now. They have a Palin clone, a fallen icon, about 3 candidates that should be libertarians, and single digit poll scores spread amongst them all. This crop has failed to impress me

And the alternative is the incumbent.

This is going to be the worst election of any I've been alive to experience.

Jus a by-the-way observation, but health-care reform seems like such a non-issue anymore. And to think the R's were talking about trying to impeach the O-man for that very issue just a few short months ago.

Or maybe I need to get back to the science thread already.

Marijuana and heroin among other drugs USED to be legal for most of the time in America, and not everyone fucking used drugs. It wasn't a horrible time and not everyone did it. What you're implying is if we legalized drugs now, EVERYONE'S gonna start using drugs. Would you use heroin and I made it legal today? Come on be reasonable. People are gonna use drugs whether you make them legal or not. Didn't you do any history homework? Didn't you know that we prohibited alcohol in this country. And look what happened there! It was a fucking disaster. It bred more crime, and basically created the Al Capones. I mean there was a reason why we repealed it, because it didn't work and it's not working now. At the very least marijuana should be legalized. That's not nearly as dangerous as cigarettes or alcohol
This guy is a character of GW right?

Putting aside your inability to spell gambling for a moment, gambling is already decided on a state by state basis you ignorant rube

Pretty sure Nevada has legal prostitution and you can buy pot legally in California.

Yeah, there's those as well, but gambling has way more than one state as an example. An incomplete list of states with legalized casinos includes:

West Virginia
Kentucky
Indiana
New Jersey
Nevada
Ohio (soon as that casino actually gets built anyway).

The Nevada prostitution thing is especially weird because while it is legal it in illegal within city limits. Which I never quite understood the logic behind it other than they were protecting their tourism in Las Vegas proper.

I had thought California had lost prescription pot and the less then x ounce laws though. But this was just things I thought I heard, you would know better what with the fact that you live there :P
