<-----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 America...you know...the version that has very little to do with the actual constitution.
