Legalizing Marijuana, Ron Paul debates Stephen Baldwin, on CNN

go the ron, i'm not a pot smoker but he has some excellent points, maybe some a little extreme but this world is far to pc, people should get responsible for their own actions, half the drugs created in the world today wouldn't be around if they were legal...

Legalizing Marijuana, Ron Paul debates Stephen Baldwin, on CNN

He does make good points, but he overlooks a pretty important point as well. Marijuana IS a gateway drug, there's no denying that (though you could argue that that is because it is illegal - it is a small step from one illegal drug to another). He denies that Marijuana is addictive, which is debatable, but it would likely lead people to do harder drugs that are extremely addictive. Ron Paul believes in freedom of choice but if Marijuana is legalised it seems to me that more people will become addicted to harder drugs and in the process loose a lot more of their freedom of choice than just the freedom to smoke pot.

Thank God he bummed out of the American Elections! There are a number of problems people either dont know or refuse to accept, with Marijuana. 1. For some, it has excessively depressing after effects. I understand that a high number of teenage suicides are young people who have been smoking dope for a while. you dont need to be a major user to get this effect either. 2. As the previous writer said, it often is a precurser to harder drugs. So the vicious downward spiral starts. 3. It chews through money! So then you get depressed and feel that the world has let you down. So fuck it, roll another one! 4. The drug stays in your body a long time, it takes a bout a week to flush it out fully. So a toke or two a week and you are contantly in the grip of the drug, even if in a minor way. 5. Legalizing it is just a recipe for encouraging greater use. There is no evidence to support that stupid step! Now Nandos has gone, not even the Greens are pushing it.

Take this topic "marijuana" and put the word "alcohol" in its place. The arguments on both sides still stand (98%), from the video - right down to our posts... so the question is, if this is the case when should we make alcohol illegal too?
