I don't think that was needed.
Agreed, people are going to do drugs anyways. Might as well tax them and get some money out of it.
I don't know if alcohol is considered a drug or not? Coffee is also a drug. Thing is, a lot of things are bad for you if you have to much of it or grow addicted to it. But in moderation they aren't bad for you. With drugs it depends on what kind, like Scream said the soft drugs really aren't that bad. Studies show that their affects are only temporary.
@Smoke thank you for the warning
Alcohol is considered a drug here, just legal.. Coffee is a drug as it has caffine in it (same as soda, tea etc)
Thats my point. There are many drugs out there, many that are legal (over the counter pain relief) Its about using your head and using in moderation.
