    Those drugs destroy peoples lives and not just their lives, their familys and any victims.
    From what ive seen and read meth is like speed and lsd mixhinkgined.

    Where is all this money going that is flowing into Mexico via the drug cartels?
    Yeah but you're not thinking about this correctly (neither did I at first). Sure the drugs are bad, they're bad for you, they're bad for anyone connected to a drug addict, they're a bad financial burden on the country ect. but the burden of keeping them illegal is much much worse. First of all, it is every adults constitutional right to do what they please with their own bodies as long as it does not adversely affect the freedom and safety of others. A regulatory system implemented by the federal government replacing the current black market controlled system will be a less harmful, less costly and a more effective policy. This alone would bring us out of the depression we're in right now not to mention the countless lives it would save.

    Do you understand the prescription drug abuse going on in this country?
    There are people paying for legal drugs on the black market to use socially.

    Legalizing any amphetamine or hallucinogenic is just asking for trouble, why do you think they became illegal
    In the 20's and 30's and before many people became addicted to drugs this way.
    Answer me this, what good would come from anyone useing Meth , for any reason?
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Sounds good on paper, to a degree.

    Insert real humans into that equation, and the whole thing falls apart.

    Actually, there is no constitutional right to do with your own body as you please. Trust me, I have studied it.

    Drug use by strangers affects the safety of others every day. Self medication by mentally ill persons, DUI and other ops under the influence are only two examples. My fiancι was killed by a crack addict.

    We are entering a fragmentation period of our culture, and legalizing drugs would allow pockets of a drug-only lifestyle to flourish, while the rest of us work to support their existence.

    Better to have a culture of hard work and personal responsibility. That's the culture of the Founders, and of the nation they envisioned.

    That's what we need, a bunch of Over hyped Gorillas running around on PCP. Ever see one of those? 3 cops kicking their butts kicked by a 150# kid whacked out on that crap.

    A meth story... I live in a very small village, about 3500 folks. An HVAC tech was living here and making meth on the side. He lived next to a school and might not have been discovered except he disposed of the chemical cans and other stuff in the school's dumpster. Ya, that will do it.

    I can remember in the 60's, Benzedrex inhalers. Used for runny nose. I was told people would break them open and some how extract the benzedrine, a drug in the meth family. Hidden in plane sight I guess.

    I used to work in an ammonia refrigeration plant in Mississippi. Methheads would break into the plant and sneak up to the roof and try to steal the ammonia. We caught a couple of them. Maintenance guys kicked the living **** outta them. Then there was the guy we did not catch. He was on top of the blast freezers, trying to fill an oxygen cylinder with liquid ammonia. He was next to a supply air fan so the smell went into the plant. After he was sighted he jumped off a 10 foot ledge onto a lower roof, then he ran across the roof, through an area that was hard to walk in during the daylight due the number of pipes. But he just went on through, jumped onto the shipping dock roof, about a 10-15 foot drop, onto the trailer of a semi. Ran the length of the trailer, jumped onto the hood and then to the ground. Then was the 100 yard sprint to the 12 foot barbwire fence that he scaled and crossed with amazing speed. This 200 yard run probably took all of about 10 seconds. This guy was a badass. If it wasnt partially caught on camera no one would have believed me. I dont know how a cop is supposed to stop this guy without shooting him..And I dont know if that would have stopped him..

    Meth was a whole different animal in those days. Most people called it "ice" or "flake". Mini white crosses were popular to. They were diet plls. Ice was crystal clear and was not nearly as addictive as the Meth they cook in bathtubs today. Ice was snorted like cocaine. Mini whites were a pill.

    I was in college the year elvis died. I have used Ice and mini whites to stay awake during finals. It was easy to stop using and when you did come down after a couple of days we would fire up a joint, smoke it, and eat five trays of food at the commons. Ice and mini whites could be abused but really did not cause "meth Mouth".

    The concoction of over the counter drugs processed using who knows what is hundreds of times stronger than the good old days. It is injected for maximum affect. I can't believe more people do not die from poisoning.

    I don't do drugs anymore. I have to end this post, I need to pour another scotch.
    Signature on hold. Trying to find a real Jefferson quote I like. Others here have bogus Jefferson quotes too.

    Meth capital of S.C.

    Lexington county is the meth capital of S.C. Not a week goes by without a story developing in the news about a meth lab here. I have seen several people that I have crossed paths with get messed up on this crap.
    Stories about the elderly being robbed and beaten to death by meth addicts and other addicts. I live in Lexington county and read or here about it all the time.
    It's refreshing to pull your head out of the box when servicing a system.

    We have a large growing part of our society that is without hope. They are uneducated, unskilled, without role models & values, and without a way out. It's not a racial thing, it's a societal breakdown combined with, maybe even fostered by economic mismanagement and over-reach by our government, combined with the leeches feeding off them and fanning the flames.

    Illegal drugs become the only way out, either in traffic or personal use. Even if legalized, there would still be a black market.

    I am always amazed given the cost of cigarettes, how many of the economically depressed people I encounter still smoke, though just making it from week to week is a challenge. But I sure don't pass any judgement on it, you have to have something to find pleasure in.

    It would seem that religion would be a whole lot less expensive were I in such a position, but thats just me.
