I doubt it - not many kids take cocaine - it's a yuppie adult drug.

Personally I have no problem with drugs - legalise the lot and get rid of all the crime overnight!!!

Well that would certainly get rid of all the drug crime. Now if we simply legalize murder, that would get rid of all the murder crime. Oh boy, we've got quite a long list of things we need to legalize here..

I don't know why people can't see it - look what happened in the States with Prohibition - as soon as alcohol was banned crime took off - Al Capone and his like had a field day. When Prohibition ended all the gangsters had to go elsewhere.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4647018.stm

Heroin was legal in Britain until 1956!!!

"In fact, as the Times editorial states, in 1955 there were only 317 addicts to "manufactured" drugs in the whole of Britain, of which just 15% were dependent on heroin. That's a national total of 47.5 heroin addicts. History, regrettably, does not record the precise circumstances of the half-addict."

Little bit different now isn't it?

Do you really think people would break into people's houses and cars to get money for drugs if they were legal? Are YOU going to start taking them if they were legalised???

Codders,

My greatest worry isn't when these people break in to your house, although I would not wish that on any one. Its when these smack heads are wondering the street all spaced out. I say if you legalise it then have places where they can do it safely for us, as well as them. And let them fund it.

But thats impractical. So making it illegal seems to be the only way.

If smack heads could afford as many drugs as they wanted they would be in no fit state to wander the streets.

I find that the biggest problems come from people who are drunk rather than the druggies. As long as they can buy their munchies they are happy.

The half addict was probbly Schizophrenic or perhaps a Siamese twin. Can you imagine what a bummer it would be if you were joined at the chest to someone who was spaced out and you weren't. Could be worse though,I guess, your twin could have got lucky and you hadn't

I got no problems with executing drug dealers or pimps for that matter, I also don't have any problems legalising either. But there must be a reason why it hasn't happened.
