On the opposing side, if you think they should be ILLEGAL, why do you?

I am asking as a neutral person (gathering data for a project lol)

Consider health side affects, and other drugs that are illegal for similar side affects/ addictive qualities.

ARGUE AWAY!! :P

No, I do not think they should be illegal. I don't need the government to tell me as a grown adult what I can and can't do with my own body.

Yes, this I know to be true lol.

I am asking how many think they should be illegal. Sorry, I could have worded that better. I am TIRED.

Quoting USCmomax4:

They are legal, at a certain age!

Just for the sake or argument, do you think ALL drugs should be legal?

Alcohol, even though i enjoy it, should be illegal. Alcohol kills so many people in so many ways, murder, driving, alcohol poisoning, it ruins lifes and is highly addicting.

Pot should be legal on the other hand....  everyone would be too lazy to fight or to drive, and i dont think you can overdose on pot. and go to any rehab center im sure there are hundreds of people there for alchohol. there wont be any for pot.

Alcohol should not be legal. I've seen first hand what it does to people.

Alcohol has been illegal before. It didn't work out so well. Crime actually rose and the women who started the campaign to make it illegal in the first place had to issue and apology.

Eh...i don't smoke or drink and I probably never will now being a parent. I don't thnk it should be illegal(only because people should chose for themselves if they are going to be responsible or not), but I don't think it should ever be used around children regardless of if they are sleeping or not. I have been woken up more times than I can count by my children, so the excuse that they are fast asleep is completely irrelevant to me.
