Decriminalize it, tax it, dedicate the revenue to educating against its use and treating addiction.
I wasn't talking about financial liability. I was talking about lawful, constitutional authority to tell the citizen what he may or may not ingest.
You've answered my question with other questions and a bit of a hypothetical.
Do you think the government has lawful, constitutional authority to tell the citizen what he may ingest? If you are able, disregard financial considerations and try to consider the law as presented by the US Constitution.
Yes and no? Good grief! Strange answers this morning to relatively simple answers about the law.
Are we able to examine the law itself, or is every answer about money?
I don't believe it for a second I have known both too, you may have been a casual user but a full blown meth head, very doubtful! Question, how's your teeth, still have them and are they your own?
I think the govt should warn against harmful substances, but not say "You CAN'T..." UNLESS those action require tax dollars. That's the catch. Govt and taxes are intertwined, so you can't have one without the other. Like I mentioned above, let people do whatever they want but I don't want to be on the hook for their stupidity....but I am.
People on meth for example, are insane. They will kill, maim and steal to get more. So, selling meth at 7-11 isn't a good idea, because everyone around that person is negatively effected. There is no positive purpose for meth, besides forgetting life and their are far more safer ways to do that.
