    But then they would have to legalise it.

    And personally i doubt dealers would go out of business, just look at how much the government taxes fuel.....if they did the same on drugs then i bet the current dealers would be much cheaper.

    But i agree that drugs wont go away, personally i don't think cannabis should be illegal (unless used when driving obviously)

    was talking about this the other day at work as well.

    would do what you said and would also get rid of all the bad ones like mixed with plant feed or whateva.

    alcohol is the worst drug about as in addiction, personal health, and legal issues etc imo

    Alcohol is already taxed.

    Watch far too many cop programs where people are caught with drugs and given a slap on the wrist.

    on the other hand if they did make drugs legal and controlled it such as companies made it properly and to a standard and taxed it they would make a lot of money in tax/profits etc and could bring the price of fuel down a little bit so will makes alot of people happy.

    at the end of the day i feel its down to the person. if they want to take drugs to get high or whatever then that is their decision. its their body, they pay their tax and NI etc. why should certain people say what we can and cannot do with our bodies. you could eat fast food 3 times a day for your whole life and you would probably end up costing the tax payer more in the long run than you would if you took drugs, which i rekon would only happen for a limited time, say 18-30

    If they legalised it, it would solve the issue of dealers + the crime and gangs that go with them. People could just buy it from the supermarket with the weekly shop. So it would benefit community in that way

    On the other hand with it being more easily available + no penalties for taking it, more people will try it and become hooked. They then wouldn't be able to keep a job as the drugs would take over, end up going on the dole and costing the community.

    For the normal people in society its a lose-lose situation TBH

    Cant see how it would benefit the community. Everybody off there t!ts = havoc. Havoc = accidents. Accidents = NHS costs. NHS costs = me/community paying more. Or have i misread?
