As far as drugs are concerned, I am in the medical profession and understand how dangerous drugs are even pot which people think is harmless. My thought is that the laws need to be changed and allow all drugs. People like myself that have never done them wont automatically start because people can always find where to ge tthem anyway. People that DO use them will buy them from the state, pay TAXWS to the state and it will take the demand OFF the streets hence less crime. What a bloodless way to put the drug cartels out of business and cut out so much crie like carjackings, home invasions, robberies and so much more. let the druggies OD if they want to but they wont need to harm anyone else in the meantime.

I doubt that you are a doctor, to be promoting the legalization of "all drugs"! Alcohol use is legal, and regulated by the state, and how well has that worked to prevent access to underage teens, etc.? And how well has that worked to prevent alcohol ABUSE, the countless millions of lives lost in drunk driving, those maimed, and millions of destroyed families and children who are abused/neglected because of alcoholic parents/spouse/or child?!! Then there are the untold hundreds of BILLIONS of $$$ in lost productivity, family dependency, and lost government revenue that would have been paid by alcoholics, who are instead TAKING from the fruits of others' labors. Our governor and legislator have now legalized medical use of marijuana, which is a slippery slope down more wrong-headed easy drug use, imo. For proof, just look up the serious problems, more crime and reduced quality of life in CA counties like Mendocino, Butte and Humboldt since CA legalized medical marijuana in 1996.

Yes alcohol is a problem and when people drink and drive it affects others on the road. This is a great concern. If someone wants to OD on drugs they dont usually make it to the cars first to endanger anyone else however.
