Obviously my country's response by locking everyone up and becoming the number one prison nation doesn't fucking work.

Didn't your country recently became great again?

If by great means worse than yes.  Doesn't bother me as much now after ignoring the 70 year old child in office and legion of idiot supporters.

Most people who get into a bad crowd are very weak minded, so once they can be rescued there is a good possibility to mold them into a valuable part of society again. And people who don't repent and pose a danger to others will just get offed. Problem solved.

I don't know if it is serious or just a joke, but this is so wrong on so many levels, it gives me the chills.

What's the wrong thing? People being weak minded? Or that removal of dangerous subjects? Or something else?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I'm in favor of not being anywhere near people that can give you trouble. So if someone is involved with drugs, gambling, harming spouse, etc get as far as possible.

Prescription medications cause just as many deaths as illegal drugs so you better stay way from granny.

No, we shouldn't miss them. We must make sure that we hit them, so we'll have to aim extra carefully.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Drugs and gambling aren't problems. As long as it doesn't harm other people then they should be allowed to do whatever they want. If people want to bet all their money and take loads of drugs then they should have every right to do so.

It is if they start mugging and stealing for it

Mugging and killing are problems unto themselves.  Stealing and killing are wrong.  Doing drugs and gambling are not.  



I had pretty bad drug problems when I was in college, causing problems that have persisted until today. I saw some fucked up things. Talking about opiates in particular, which was what I got involved in, I can say that it becomes an issue of staying "well". Your body becomes dependent on the drug to function, and when the drug wears off, you feel like you have the flu and get depressed and anxious. It really sucks, and that's what drives people to stealing and ripping people off.

One of the craziest things that happened during this time for me was a heroin deal that went south. I was in the car with a "friend" of mine and someone that needed H called him saying that he scrounged up some cash. My "friend" did not have any H, but wanted to get the money off of this guy, so he lied and said he did have some. We stopped at a convenient store and he punctured a bag of cat litter and took out a couple of the rocks, and we bagged that up and made it look like heroin.

Now, it's not particularly hard to tell the difference between cat litter and heroin, but oftentimes the heroin is cut with something that makes it less pure, and this guy that bought the kat litter was desperate, and figured he'd go ahead and try shooting it up anyways, knowing that it probably wasn't heroin, but there was a small chance it was. A few moments after the injection it became clear that there was no heroin in the shot, and my "friend" played it off saying that he must have been ripped off himself because he paid good money for it.

The guy that took the shot started vomiting and we had to take him to the hospital where he spent several days.

Really fucked up story, I know. Almost killing someone just to get like 60 bucks to go and buy a bag.

My argument is that just because a drug is legal doesn't mean shit and that legal drugs can be just as bad or worse than illegal drugs.

Your argument is ridiculous because my point is to avoid people that can put you in trouble by being with them. Being around people that do crack have a high risk of you going to jail together when police bust the group while you helping your grandma that use a lot of legal drugs won't give you these problems.

Bad analogy is bad analogy.
