No has the right to take people's lives, full stop! What "law" gives anyone the right to kill?  ...

How many people do drug pushers kill through their products?

And who do you want to punish with the death penalty for committing suicide???

No one, that one is case closed and saves the tax payers a lot of money

would work if he was caught with a beer and some ice (frozen water). that isnt the case here though. He was caught with crystal methaphetamine otherwise known as ice. therefore it is a strong case to say he wasnt talking about the scenario you mentioned.
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

No I'm not against cigarettes, alcohol or cars. I am in favour of decriminalising the possession an ...

I have seen all kinds of addicts go berserk and it is never a pretty picture.

their products are frequently fatal to the users


Which is exactly why I am for the legalisation of drugs so the state can make sure of the quality and also get taxes on it. It would also reduce criminality.

I think your commonsense was arrested sometime in the 1950s when calling for the right to smoke  ...

Agree with you on most points. Drugs are being pointed out when tobacco and alcohol kill millions more people each year.

I support the legalisation of the drug business which would create jobs, taxes, and reduce criminality while increasing the quality of the product and therefore decreasing the harm for the final customer.

However I do believe each dispensary should have an in-house psychologist to help those who want to be helped (the guy buying some light recreational drugs once every 6 months probably doesn't need help).

The controversy surrounding drug consumption reminds me of the schizophrenic attitudes people ha ...

I am also in favour of legalizing prostitution which would certainly reduce risk of STD while increasing safety for the working girls.

And I don't even mention the taxes !

I believe it works properly in Germany.
As for the legislator protecting the health of the consumer, there was actually a big judiciary debate in France years ago.

A couple used to engage in SM sex and it could get quite rough, the woman would often have bruises. She went to the doctor who reported her husband to the police (he legally had to since he suspected spousal abuse). Both the wife and the husband explained there was no abuse, psychologists agreed the wife was not under duress at all and actively participated in the games. Yet the husband has been sentenced to 18 months in jail.

The judge considered it was society's job to protect you against yourself, the same way people will do whatever they can to prevent you to commit suicide.
