Most drug laws are a waste of tax payer money and take away freedom.

It's not up to me to decide what substances you put in your body.

Waiting for the “yeah, but alcohol” justification.
"Schedule 1 (I) drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined by the federal government as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule 1 (I) drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence"

The minute that medical marijuana was legitimized it should have been dropped immediately.

Exactly. Alcohol is a drug, and is legal, why aren't the others?

That's fine if you pick up the tab for your drug-induced health problems. But if I have to pay the tab, now I want some control over what you put into your body.

It doesn't matter to them. What matters is that it's an intoxicating substance, is opposed to their religious beliefs, and is widely associated with demographics and cultures they are disgusted by i.e. "good people don't smoke marijuana". Since it's 2019, that is enough to make sure it remains illegal.

Where did I state that you should be responsible for paying to treat drug addicts?

BTW, alcohol is my only recreational drug.

Agreed.

If someone wants to shoot heroine, that's their decision.

However, hospitals should have the right to turn away OD patients.

If you CHOOSE to inject poison into your body, don't expect to be bailed out. You're on your own.

The only reason you are probably okay with alcohol being legal is because it's such an integral part of western (and specifically white Christian) culture. Marijuana on the other hand is widely used by and associated with demographics you don't approve of.

My fetish is legal. That’s the difference.
