What this comes down to is what is "right vs wrong".
Just because governments make laws (in this case to protect the pharma industry), does NOT make it "ok".
At one time, slavery was legal.
So did that make it "right"?
It took people to stand up against such laws to change them, otherwise we are just sheep listening to what "big brother" tells you to do and think.
The "war on drugs" has proven to be a failure.
They demonize Pot, saying it has "no medical value", when there is a mountain of evidence to the contrary.
The same for LSD, which now medical evidence says it can help with brain disorders and depression.
What causes the most "drug deaths" legal or illegal drugs?
Hands down it is LEGAL drugs, like alcohol and cigarettes.
Even Aspirin cases more deaths than Pot or LSD!

Hmmm,
methinks you are just pleading your personal addiction case. Do you think society has a duty to tolerate aberrant behavior Your arguments are identical to those boozers can bring up. If alcohol is consumed in moderate quantities it is harmless... so Pot must be harmless but is it when you overdo it? And then, why draw the line around Pot There is Ice, there is cocaine, there are dozens of other substances that are NOT harmless. Nor is smoking cigarettes, yet we have to put up with smokers everywhere, especially in China.

This is my private opinion: substance abusers are morally weak people. People who cannot control their behavior are a menace to society. Society has the right to control the consumption of substances, and on occasion they have the duty to ban them.

And look here, what you wrote:

I have no sympathy for those who spread such laundry woman gossip.
I wont believe it, and even if Aspirin does "kill", it kills because the consumer has taken it for the wrong reason, not because it is legal. Aspirin is one of the few drugs that have been found to produce very good effects and new positive effects have been discovered over the decades since it came into existence.

So please, mind your rhetorics and do not liken illegal substances with tried and tested medical drugs!

its TRUE!

How can anyone (including you) ignore these FACTS?
yeah...
aspirin kills because there are few who are allergic.
How many people are allergic to pot or LSD who's "side effects" wear off in a matter of hours?
NONE!
So why should a government criminalize such benign things and put an unwarranted stigma attached to it?

Maybe you have lost your sense of being "reasonable and rational" thought, that is somehow connected to a mindset that can not fathom the facts presented.
(thought you were better than that)

Most "drug users" (including alcohol) are responsible users.
It is those who you cite, that gives the rest of the bunch a bad name.

I resent your assumptions that I'm some kind of "addict"and that anyone who uses "drugs" are "weak".
Since you do drink, I would assume you put yourself in that same category.
If I take a "toke" every now and then.....
Am I an addict?
Since you drink every now and then, can I assume you are an alcohalic?

Duh.

You have found the hairpin under a haystack. How did you do that?

I still go on believing that Aspirin essentially is a GOOD drug whereas Pot and LSD are not.

Fine, there are wine drinkers (such as me) who enjoy wine without pushing it to excess. But the majority of LSD and Pot consumers are abusers who don't stop before they get a high and before they have become addicted.

I deem it a state's right to monitor people in public places to ensure a high safety level for everyone. I have no problems with cooperating when asked to allow them to check in neuralgic spots. Surely your problem is not worth discussing it in a nationalist forum that normally channels nationalist hatred against the West
