  • Why dont they legalise prostitution whilst they are at it. House and tax them. They pay the rent get security and get doctor checks. Save a shed load of cash and police time.

  • But, if we decriminalized drugs, where would the nitwits in DEA and ATF find jobs?

  • If you understand the corporation it all makes sense. Its their mandate to make money, even at the expense of humanity. Big Pharma and the private prison industry are echelons of pure evil, condensed into a construct that has us eating their pills and kidnapping our kids, living in their jails. The future so bright i gotta wear shades.

    • @oldboy6o4 Problem, IMO, is not the big pharma (nobody is forcing you to buy their shit pills), it's the corrupt politicians that create more laws so that there is more work for the government and lawyers, all to make money.

      In Russia this problem is not present as much and from what I understand possession of any drugs for personal use (I think it's 10 or so doses) is legal.

    • @oldboy6o4 Yep, come check it out, you may like it. I'd recommend going to Moscow or St.Petersburg. It gets cold, but not minus 40c, usually around minus 15-20 or so.

  • would put 13% of the cops,judges, and lawyers out of work. now you see why that like this bs. we can vote them out or we can put them under in a nice war. but this time it wont be north vs south it would be the poor verse the rich. will some rich would still be on the side of the poor so yeah they would just start killing everyone not wearing a badge

  • How about the cost of the war on cancer?
    Should we give that up, too?

    • @EMAG-K Ad hominem attacks are the domain of those without an argument. That's how I'll interpret your uninformative, puerile outburst.
