My perspective on legalizing all drugs.

                So this is an interesting topic that I would like to share my perspective on. So yes I am one vote for legalizing all drugs. Why?

               Well from what I have seen through personal experience with drugs and addictions is that most that are drug addicts or addicts in general do not want to be addicts and want to stop but are stuck in a pattern. So we have a majority of people that do not wish to be addicts. Consider how much money we are spending on drug laws and keeping drugs illegal. It is LOTS OF MONEY. So consider how much money we would be able to redirect if drugs were legal into rehabilitation and things that will benefit humanity. So then we will greatly reduce the amount of drug use and have a more effective society also the price of drugs would change because then they will be not 'hard to get' and will not have a high perceived value. So then we no longer have people getting rich off of drug laws that are in place, the drug dealer will have to sell WAY more drugs but will not have as many people to sell to because people will be getting helped and becoming effective members of humanity.

    "But Sean what about the crackheads that will be walking around the street smoking crack."
         My answer to that is we already have that it is just hidden because the people are not openly smoking crack and this again brings me back to my point about most people not wanting to be addicts. Do you really think a crackhead wants to be a crackhead? So yes I am one vote for legalizing all drugs. It will take away the fact that if somthing is hidden from us humans we want to try it because we are curious to why it is so 'bad'. We will also be able to direct the money from legalization into effective drug education so that kids know what they are seeing and don't get manipulated or tricked into doing drugs because they are not educated enough to make an informed decision.

 To end this blog post I also want to point out that if we had a economic system that is not profit and greed driven drug dealers will virtually not exist. So investigate

If we have a system based on all life living as equals then drugs and drug addiction will no longer be hidden or be taboo because all things will be considered in an equality system all points will be dealt with in a way that is best for all.
