    But if we keep pouring money into the War and Drugs while locking away as many users as we can, then victory is just around the corner!Report

    What we need to do is legalize it and then add acetaminophen or ibuprofen to it to make sure that no one abuses it lest they do themselves serious kidney damage.Report

    Nah, Jay, if we legalized it you’d probably be able to buy it in a little package like those crystal lite thingies or maybe a skin absorbent patch. It would be cheap and probably doled out in controlled douses so only a tenth or less as addictive or dangerous. Of course it’d still make one feel good which is horror to the right and of course there’d be danger of dependency which would be horror to everyone and of course there’d be danger of someone hurting themselves from using too much which’d be horror to the left and someone would be making money off of it which would be horror to the far left and of course we wouldn’t need to pay for the DEA which would be horror to the government employees and drug warriors.Report
