There was once a government-sponsored drugs manufacturing. Under regime of Noriega in Panama. As far as I remember, the USA was necessitated to remove Noriega from his office and to put him to jail to run a very long term. Why should then the U.S. government do things it punished others for?
The US goverment shouldn't just be allowed to do things it punishes others for in any situation, that's madness, but if the US government has wrongly punished someone for no good reason, they should be allowed to, if they realise they have made a mistake, change their minds. "I, that do speak a word. May call it back again." - Shakespeare
. They could actually admit that they have made a mistake, and say, "actually, you know what? let's legalise it! I'm sorry guys, we were wrong." Not that that would EVER happen - but if it did, that would be a situation where the US government should
do something it punished others for.
Drugs are the synonym of voluntary insanity. So is alcohol. Why should all this be a part of us?
Not what my thesaurus says. I've got: medicine, medication, medicament, remedy, cure, physic, narcotic, opiate, barbiturate, amphetamine, sedative, stimulant, dope, sedate, stupefy, narcotize, anaesthetize, deaden benumb, dull.
And aren't some drugs supposed to actually 'expand your mind,' if that's at all possible? Don't some drugs somehow make you use different parts of the brain that you wouldn't normally use? You can't just lump them all into the same category - some of them are addictive, some of them aren't, some of them kill off brain cells and make you stupid, some of them give you a life-changing, mind-expanding experience, which is arguably worth the possible side-effect of insanity.
And anyway, what's wrong with a bit of insanity? A bit of colour? I'm not sure I want to live in a world where everybody says, "hello, how are you today?" "oh I'm very well thankyou, feeling perfectly sane today, you?" "oh yes me too, very sane."
Don't you want to see people dancing around screaming, "BLUHARLURGEHOO!!!!" or hiding in basements, blabbering about "the voices!"???
