Why Does The ACLU Want
To Legalize Drugs?

<-----How we'll all look in ACLU's America

Can some tell me where it says in the Constitution that everyone is entitled to drugs without interference from the government?

The ACLU is for taking the criminal aspect out of drug use and calling it simply a public health problem. In otherwords, they support legalizing all drugs and simply supporting needle exchanges and other such government programs that would actually encourage "safe" drug use. Of course they blame Reagan and The War In Drugs.

Do they not realize how stupid of an idea this is? I'd love to get 1000 crack heads, heroin junkies, speed users, and pot heads, and release them in the ACLU headquarters for at least a day. Let's see what would happen. Multiply that situation by a lot and release them into the public all over the U.S. and see what happens. Do we really believe that drug use would go down or remain the same if we let it be legal? Let's put it this way. The show COPS had better move to a 4 hour program because the police force would surely half to double to handle the streets after that fiasco. These are hardcore mind-altering drugs. A bit different from cigarettes. It'd be one thing if the ACLU was strictly talking pot. I could understand that stance a little better, I'd disagree but at least I could understand it. But Marijuana will be the least of our worries at that point.

The war on drugs is a noble effort that maybe hasn't always been used up to it's potential. It needs tweaking. But to legalize drugs would be a million times worse than overhauling our anti-drug plan in the U.S.

Raising children in a world of drug users is a terrible terrible idea. It's one of the most unbelievable stances that the ACLU holds. The government is there to govern. If you want to see this nation fall apart, which I'm half convinced the ACLU wants, than by all means, legalize drugs. Until then we must keep a tight grip on this war at home. I'm for as small a government as possible, but enforcing drug laws is not something I'm willing to sacrifice for ACLU's warped version of know...the version that has very little to do with the actual constitution.

I don't want to see drugs legalized. It's a folly for anyone to want that. The only drug I think should be legalized is marijuana. There are two reasons. A) Marijuana seems to grow darn near everywhere and that makes it hard to stop. B) Making it legal will tale a lot of the thrill out of it for thrill-seekers who make up a large portion of the pot-using community. Cheers!

Great post, I've got one on this as well at my site. Keep exposing the ACLU's radical agenda!

Legalizing drug use would not create a nation full of stoned out crazies. It would simply decriminalize the use and sale of drugs, saving millions of dolalrs on jails, enforcement and possible raising millions more through taxes.
It would lesson violent crime, created primarily by turf wars by dealers.
They tried prohibition in the 20's. Didn't work then, and it's not working now. Locking people up who use drugs is no more productive than asserting that legalization will make everyone a dope fiend.

That's a great thought except I've never seen any proof that crime would get better. It's stupid if you think about it. The crime would switch from drug posession to killing someones kid for another hit. That aspect would not change.

We don't need more drugged out morons walking all over the place. I vote no. Down with the ACLU.

Well, people who smoke weed after trading stocks all day wouldn't be doing mandatory minimum sentences in prison over bullshit bureaucratic laws, for starters.

So yeah it does reduce crime by eliminating the use or posession of the substance as a criminal offense.
