The war is about the disposal of what Simon called, in his most unforgiving but cogent term, “excess Americans”: once a labour force, but no longer of use to capitalism. He went so far as to call the war on drugs “a holocaust in slow motion”.

The easiest way to get the country out of debt would be to legalize drugs, prostitution and gambling.

That and getting rid of tax exemptions for mega churches. But it would need to be heavily taxed and regulated. I don't want to smoke any meth that hasn't been approved by the FDA.

I have no problem with somebody of legal age going into the corner store to buy a pack of "Reefers" or "Mary Janes." Just like somebody buying a pack of "Winstons" or "Chesterfields."

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

Could you imagine what our society would look like if this happened?

Marijuana is on it's way...the walls are falling piece by piece in the anti-weed department. Can't say the same for any other drugs, and I can't say I think any others should be legalized.

unfortunately marijuana and other drugs such as pills etc are easier to get a hold of in high schools then are alcohol or cigarettes. so I don't really know how much society would change.

I think it would change greatly. All the people on the fence would have no reason to not jump on board and the supply would be greater. IMO

I disagree. First of all, I think that just because something is illegal, doesn't mean it's hard to get. It's definitely easier for high school kids to buy weed than it is to buy cigarettes. But it's not just availability. Quality and quantity is also important. Whether or not someone decides to shoot heroin is up to them. The risks are very well known. Jail time for possession of heroin is a slight deterrent at best. However, with legalization comes regulation and that means that you won't be gambling with your life every time you cook up a hit from a new batch. It also means that junkies won't be relegated to sharing needles in dingy crack dens.

Will legalization encourage more people to try "illicit drugs"? Possibly. But there are perscription drugs available now that dwarf the effects of pretty much every street drug in both potency and dependence. A heroin junkee need only find a doctor willing to write him a roxy script and viola! Medical heroin! Same goes for prostitution. Take the hookers out of the alleys, put them in a safe environment where they don't run the risk of getting their throats slashed in the dark. Legitimize an industry that's been legal before without any ill affects and tax it. Gambling is already legal, just to a select few. I don't see people living in cardboard boxes under the Atlantic City boardwalk.

I don't understand the history behind this. How is a nation that which for it's first 200 years fought and prided itself on separation of church and state ended up allowing religious institutions to become a protected class?

Its not about god. It is a non profit like Livestrong, Big Brothers, Big Sisters etc... Personally I see it as a scape goat for alot of business' to use to shelter there profits. Alot of these companies have huge cash reserves and pay employees very well. I mean 6 figures well.

The bible belt became a extremely important voting block. Then there was the rise in televangelism in the late 20th century and the blurring of lines between a churches non-profit activities and its for-profit activities. There was also the rise of Jerry Falwell's "Moral Majority" political organization in the 70s and 80s. Which came right after the courts took Christian prayer out of the public schools, the sexual revolution (the birth control pill and sex before marriage), the Roe v. Wade decision, the growing acceptance of homosexual people, and the increase in the divorce rate. This movement encouraged church members (primarily in rural areas) to become more politically active to "save 'merica from goin' to Hell." So now we have elected officials of all sides seeking the support of the "values voters." They in turn look the other way when religious institutions get increasingly involved with state matters (like the Mormon church and Prop 8 in California for example).
