response to this:

I think that caffeine and tobacco are still legal because they do not have any affects such as seeing things or the feeling of superhuman strength. ; Yes they do have bad side effects and many of them are only done to the person that is using that product with the exception of tobacco smoke. I as a parent try to limit my kids to caffeine and tobacco smoke to make sure that their health is not in danger. ; I feel like these drugs are still legal because they do not produce the same side effects as the illegal ones. ; A person cannot get a soda and get a “high” from it. ; The first time you smoke a cigarette you do get a feeling of a high but it does not last long and the second one that you smoke the feeling goes away. ; With alcohol the “high” feeling that a person would get when they are drunk does not go away as fast. ; Since it does take time to sober up a person can get violent while they are drinking. ; According to the textbook people who drink are the most violent people that uses drugs. ; Most of the other illegal drugs makes a person more sedentary and less prone to violence. ; With this fact I would think that it might be a wise thing to make alcohol illegal as well, but we know that will not work. ; When people are told that they cannot have something then that is when they want it the most. ;As far as the drugs that have proven medical use I think that they should be legal if the medicinal part of the drug can be removed from the drug and that can be prescribed. ; I do not think that drugs such as PCP should be legal in the current form. ; At one point most of the now illegal drugs were legal for some medicinal use. ; They were abandoned from this use because they were too dangerous for the doctors to use safely. ;The proof of this is with the PCP that was used in veterinary medicine. ; Then Ketamine came along to replace it. ; Most of the Ketamine according to the book that is on the streets was made for use in the veterinary clinics. ; This just proves that if something is legal for medicinal purposes it can also be abused on the streets. ; Just because something has a good property does not mean that it would not be abused as well. ; I think that things should stay as they are not in regards to what is legal and what is not. ; To the people that are looking for a high would not care if it is legal or not. ; I think that changing the laws right now would do nothing but put a drain on the legal system since everyone would have to learn new laws in regards to drugs and if something is legal or not is really not the problem. ; The problem is what to do for the people that are using the drugs and how to get them off of them.
