the argument some people have is people take drugs/import them therefore the sentences don't work so just legalise it. well people get sent to jail for rape, murder, assaults but these offences still get committed so should we just legalise it all as obviously prison sentence aren't a deterrent?

You are equating smoking a joint in private to rape and murder...

 

Have a long hard think about that.

 

He isn't equating it.

Your rationale is that the current illegal status of something is not working because people still do it.

Should we legalise drink driving?

A particularly nasty and vicious assault (bordering on attempted murder imo and from the report) was reported in today's local paper.

 

The deemster ended a speech to the guy by telling him to do this, do that, and to "stear clear of cannabis".

 

Was it a case of extreme reefer madness ?

I could really do with some drugs to make me chill. Hmmmm, guess cannsbis is illegal, all for my health and safety of course. I guess I'll just pop some prescription opiates and down a bottle of vodka and get drunk, all perfectly legal. What a silly law.

Prison is exactly the right place for him to go. Whether you're pro-legalisation or not.

 

No, in education, vocational training or a full time job is the right place for him to go.

You assume he wants to be in any of those.

You assume he doesn't. You in your ivory tower have no idea what you're talking about. Never judge someone unless you've walked a mile in his shoes.

My assumption is based on his behaviour. Yours is based on...
