34. Great attitude there, man...
One of the biggest failures of the war on drugs is the inability of the Feds to separate the drugs they are trying to fight. They see pot, herion, meth, and cocaine as equally evil and destructive. You and I both know that is false.

I find it really frustrating that many people who advocate for drug legalization can't draw those lines in exactly the same way as the Feds. All drugs should be legal - period. That's just as insane as saying that all drugs should be illegal, and that pot dealers should be dealt with in the same way as meth dealers.

There are lines that need to be drawn. I never said treat people as criminals and refuse to treat them, and in fact I've said just the opposite.

I've stated that I'm firmly for the decriminalization of marijuana. I've done plenty of drugs in my time, and still smoke pot - it's far more benign than alcohol.

Don't try to paint me into some Reefer Madness abolitionist. All drugs are not created equal, and they should be dealt with in different ways. There is no redeeming quality to meth, and it is a fucking scourge on society that needs to be looked at seriously.
