Why is there a watermelon there?
Good idea, bad example. Personally, I'm in favor of decriminalizing dug USE, and legalizing marajuana. As far as pot goes, if we're going to allow cigaretts, it's just hypocracy not to allow pot. As for other drugs, treat it as a sickness, not a crime and it would DRASTICALLY reduce prison populations, and eliminate the "criminal factories" that prisons have become. Non-violent drug users go in, viloent drug users come out. Treatment facilities would be cheaper and more effective than prisons. As for Holland, yes there's little crime. But it's also has the highest per capita incidence of AIDS/STD's outside of Afica. That is NOT the model we want to emulate.

I think you have to look at Holland when you speak of this topic. They have very loose laws when it comes to drugs, and they have the one of the lowest violent crime rates in the entire world.
