22. OK, then it's silly...

 

No worries.

But since things don't happen in a vacuum, do you honestly think that decriminalizing drugs in America based on the already sky-high levels of addiction (to all manner of things) wouldn't have an effect on addiction to drugs?

Of course there's reason to assume that people will partake of more drugs who don't abuse alcohol; I look to myself...I don't like to drink much at all, but I love other 'illegal' drugs and if they were decriminalized I'm sure it would motivate even me to use them more often, and I doubt that I'm alone in that.

Not to mention, what about those alcoholics? You think they'd just stick to beer if coke was decriminalized?

Perhaps that's silly too.
