Re: “Danehy

Thank you, Mr. Danehy, for voicing something I have often thought: Why do drugs?

Seriously, there are cheaper and more legal alternatives. Like chocolate.

If you've ever been the only sober person in a room (whether people were intoxicated by alcohol, illegal drugs, inhalants, pick your poison), you know that it can be an unsettling experience. I've never found it fun to watch intoxicated people stumble around or try to speak in complete sentences, and I don't know why they find it fun to do such things.

That being said, if people want to overindulge in legal intoxicating substances, that is their right. If marijuana was legalized I would have no problem with people getting high, as long as they did it responsibly.

This brings us to another point that seems to have been overlooked here. Many proponents of marijuana legalization have argued that it will eliminate the need for law enforcement to combat the drug trade, and this will save a lot of tax dollars and lives. But you are not taking into account the money and manpower that will still be needed to enforce the laws that would regulate legalized marijuana, similar to those that regulate alcohol and tobacco use. I'm not saying it shouldn't be legalized, I'm just saying we should examine all angles of the issue and make the most informed decision possible.

Finally, I wish people who choose to partake would not judge those of us that don't so harshly. My choice to avoid illegal substances is not a judgement of your choice to use them.
