Dinki: Does subby think the only opium growers in Afghanistan are Taliban?
Treygreen13: UnspokenVoice: Legalize all drugs for those who have reached the age of majority...so 18 year olds with PCP. Gotcha.How about HGH?
namatad: 1) yes the numbers would go up by a small amount (does anyone really think the usage of heroin would double or triple?)but the numbers would also go down some amount, because people would be able to safely get treatment for an illness, rather than fear from committing a crime.
namatad: 3) yes, bath salts and heroin, esp since heroin users are less likely to react like pcp users.how many people used bath salts because they couldnt legally get something else?
namatad: Treygreen13: namatad: /sigh - cue the "drugs are bad" tards .... like the war on drugs has been good for ANYONE other than drug lords?So.. OTC PCP?You're ok with that?so yah ....PCP, antivirals and antibiotics are probably not a good idea .....that being said, would the "damage" from PCP users increase? is it really a big problem or a red-herring ...but yah .... PCP is probably a no ....alas, in the end, people who are going to abuse and use insane drugs are going to be able to get insane drugs and abuse them ....
neversubmit: Afghan opium production increases for 3rd year in a row, nearing recordThe boom in poppy cultivation is at its most pronounced in the Taliban's heartland in the south, the report showed, especially in regions where troops of the U.S.-led coalition have been withdrawn or are in the process of departing. The report suggests that whatever international efforts have been made to wean local farmers off the crop, they are having little success.Yeah, right, sure, lie all you want we know what's really going on.
vpb: Dinki: Does subby think the only opium growers in Afghanistan are Taliban?Probably not, considering that the Taliban banned opium growing.
Aarontology: Considering we're a society in which the first question people ask someone who just came from the doctor is "Did they give you the good stuff" Americans don't really have any room to talk about opiates.
