Why drugs should remain banned in Off Topic
Obviously if they were practicing safe sex, they wouldn't be pregnant would they?
The fallacy lies in the idea that opening up something damaging to more people is ok if it reduces crime. Legalisation simply suggests that one can't or does not want to deal with the original problem.
Yet you've already admitted that crime in the US is quite high, and I'm sure you know that some (not saying all or even most) of that crime is drink related. It seems like legalisation is an admittance of defeat on the grounds that if people suffer less quickly in a less obvious way then thats easier than dealing with the original problem.
Shit just got real.
