#12 | Posted by nutcase, The point of calling a action a felony is the presence of a victim. Speeding is a misdemeanor, depending upon the result. Cause an accident that causes a death and you get charged with a felony, vehicular homicide. As a libertarian, I feel that all drug laws should be repealed. They are simply counter productive. I would rather a junky be able to get his high from a store cheep than have to rob to feed his habit. We had no laws ageist the use of drugs until the Mann Act in 1933. It was a progressive act. Just like prohibition. Before that act we had about 10% of the population hooked on something, 80 years later we have about 10% of the population hooked on something. That is progressive progress.
#13 | Posted by nutcase, it surely depends on what and how much. I would agree that any amount of meth should result in involuntary detox at least. That crap creates psychotic monsters, with 5 years of regular use. I have watched it happen. And their are a host of other drugs that effects are so dangerous they are an issue of public safety.
