Strongly opposes enforce laws against immoral drug use

Q: Your opinion on our VoteMatch statement, "Drug use is immoral: enforce laws against it"?

A: Strongly oppose. End the drug war. Keep government out of the picture. Drug use is a personal choice. Remove profits from the equation and much of it will go away. Favor industrial hemp for its many uses. Find non-therapeutic drug use to be unintelligent as there are much better ways to feel better, think better, etc.

Drug use isn't immoral, though it's unintelligent

Q: What is your opinion on the statement, "Drug use is immoral: enforce laws against it"?

A: Oppose. Drug use isn't immoral, though it's unintelligent, it's a symptom that society is on the wrong path. One, drugs are sold for profit. If there were no profit to be made from them there would be significantly less drugs made. So the question then becomes, "how can we end profiteering on drugs?" Two, many people have no hope, no purpose. If they had a purpose, a set of worthy goals that are realistic and in line with their passions, they wouldn't be interested in the drugs. There are people who want to use drugs to purposely change their consciousness but if trained properly could do so without drugs. Psychonautics should be a readily available course of study. Children need a user's manual to the human psyche and that will make drugs far less attractive.
