Should be just put heroin and cocaine behind the counters of drug stores, where anyone over 18 can buy them?
I posted a question about how tobacco companies get away with selling a product that is not only deadly, but is addictive. I got a lot of responses basically saying that the government should not be allowed to tell us what to put in our bodies, and to an extent, I agree. I am for the legalization of marijuana, but marijuana has been proven to actually have health benefits. However, should other drugs, such as crack and heroine, who are harmful and not at all helpful, be legal? Should we be able to go into the gas station and buy a small vial of LSD, since the government "shouldn't tell us what we can and can't buy and put into our bodies"?
I'm just curious how this works for some of you. Are you for all substances being legal?

Regulate, sell and tax the snot out them. Just like with cigs and alcohol. People are using the drugs anyway, why not make them safer to obtain (decrease the violence associated with getting the drugs into the country) and let the US profit from the sales- Hey, there's some we can manufacture and sell.

PS- everyone would not automatically become a drug addict- just like everyone is not an alcoholic, smoke cigs, or has a horrible diet- Sometimes, the more something is forbidden, the more people crave-
