If people willingly choose to destroy themselves for example by smoking or taking ketamine, then it should not be down to the government to nanny them. I think the only drugs that should remain illegal are the ones that cause serious harm to others around you. The fact that alcohol remains legal is hypocritical of the government's current stance on drugs.

if you drink alcohol sensibly you can drink it for life and have no real problems at all. (alcohol addiction is another matter)

on the other hand with most other drugs you can't really say the same.

I think the US should allow people to have some pot for personal use.

I've never did drugs, but I think pot has some uses to it. I've never taken notice to anything major happening with pot, except people laughing, goofy or eating. Drinking is worse.

All drugs are bad for you. Ban them all.

Banning them so far doesn't seem to be helping as they are all so easily acquired. There needs to be a different approach

What's interesting is that five people think tea and coffee should be made illegal. :blink:

Also more people would rather cannabis be legal than tobacco.

I think strict control rather than banning completely. Maybe from a Pharmasist?

Something like strict control for some of them, perhaps.

It would be nice to think that everyone could be trusted to make a well informed decision about their body and mental health, and keep their activities within the privacy of their own home, but truth is most people are not able or willing to do so.

Sure people still take illegal substances, but because it's illegal you don't have to deal with the consequences of it quite so often as you would otherwise.

Caffeine and poppers seem to be the only ones on that list the wouldn't lead to social problems if large numbers of people took them in large quantities. Everything else ought to be illegal imo.

Some interesting facts about the results so far:

  • - Caffeine is the most supported drug
    - Heroin is the least supported drug
    - Viagra and tobacco are the most controversial drugs
    - People are most uncertain about Valium, GHB, and Ritalin.

I don't necessarily think they should be "Legal" for recreational use, however they Should Not Be Criminal Offenses.
