Tag Archives: drug legilization

Normally you would not hear the three of these words together, and nor should you really.

Right now there is a movement to legalize, soft drugs…maybe even hard drugs.  To remove their use as a crime, because it is victimless and it is what someone does for or to themselves.  It is not the responsibility of society to pay for, or punish behavior such as that.

Now, on the whole notion I am luke warm on and really cautious about.  I am not sure all drugs should be legalized, and am cautious on the effects that they will have on the rest of society.

I do believe it is a state issue and for the states to decide.  If California wants to legalize marijuana, then let them, no skin off my back, I am in Arizona.  It is not really an issue for the Federal Government to deal with.  Unless it crosses borders.

But in the end, my advice is, not yet, not now, and we really need to take a long look at the process before we decide on what drugs should be legal and not, and how and where they should be legal.

We should do that anyways, but given the political situation in this country right now makes it really important that we put this off onto the back-burner.

It’s an end of the road sort of thing.

What I mean is that right now we have limited freedom, limited control of our own lives.  Everything, seemingly, is being taken away from us by our power mad Government.  What to eat, where to go to school, what health care to buy, etc etc.

So why drugs?

We know why liberals tend to be more supportive of gay marriage, of abortion, of illegal immigration…sorry immigration ‘reform’…and a host of other issues.

But why drugs?  Especially since many Liberals/ Progressives are bent on controlling your health, passing health care, mandating that restaurants cannot sell certain things.  And drugs are health concerns in some small part or another.

To give us another distraction, another issue to keep us busy.  And then if we get the drugs then it will just give…a certain percentage of the population, the ability to be doped up and to ignore events, thereby to be more easily controlled.

It’s just to drug us up, get us high, and ignore things.  And then to paint anyone who does not want the drugs as hypocrites.  Oh you do not want drugs but you love liberty?  Hypocrite.

But right now we cannot excercise that right because we are nowhere free in any other aspect of our lives to use that right.  Our lives and liberty are under control, or under siege, ever-increasing siege.

We need to get the freedoms we have lost, to restore them in our hearts and minds and our society, before we can worry about being strong enough or free enough to make the decision, yeah I want to try me some of that.

We need to restore our own personal responsibility, the proper role of Government…and dare I say it morality.

Then and only then can we have the conversation of what to legalize, and how we should legalize it, and how it will affect the rest of society, the pros and cons.

We have to regain true freedom and true liberty, before we worry about what to add onto it.  We have to realize what our priorities are as a society to fix before we can move on and try to address these concerns, and we have to do it slowly, with great consideration.
