    [quote user="allentown PA"][quote user="byron"][quote user="allentown PA"]like I said above...those things u are describing are not illegal..kids having to see that when walking to school is sad but its not illegal...I think legalizing would take away many of these problems, my main point is the hurting of love ones and all these other issues that arise from drug use are all irrelvant when it comes to the legalization of drugs...its all about money..like I said earlier the safety of people is seldomly taken into account when making these decisions. Like I said victimless crime not a victimless act there is nothing illegal about the things u described...I wish they were but they are not.[/quote] Well they may be irrelvant as you say, but you can bet they be discussed duringthe debate to legalize or not ..And damn sure carry weight when one makes his vote..[/quote] good point...doesnt change the real motive though..imo[/quote] </P>


    Motive being money?...Well I doubt the lawmakers of this country would put money ahead of the safety of its people or ignore the potential fall out that legalization would more than likely create....its not a black and white decision...I don'tsee the attitude of this country or the people who run it ever reaching a state of mind that would legalize... the irrelevant fall out as you callit most certainly would be the deal breaker...imho</P>[/quote] yes motive being money..not to get to far off base here but here is an example of this...look at the drunk driving laws in England, I think its mandatory jail time first offense. Drunk driving is almost non exsistient over there. Think of all the drunk driving related deaths in this counrty...If we were so concerned about the well being of the people here why not adopt their policy...The reason is there is far too much money to be made when it comes to DUI's and DUI classes and all the money that comes in for that....so yes lawmakers often do not take our safety into consideration when it comes to laws.[/quote]Do you really think that drunk driving (the court costs, fines, jail time, time paid to the officers, road repairs, etc, all the things related to DUI) is profitable for the government?[/quote] You dont??? There is a lot of money involved in those things...Who is living in vacuum?[/quote]Yes lots of money. Doesn't make it profitable.
