I think the result of decriminalization will ultimately end up the same as alcohol. And the medical problems with pot will also be well known if it is legal and I think that will result in lower usage than other drugs.I completely disagree with this. Making drug use socially acceptable and drugs easier to find and use are not positive moves for addicts and potential addicts. It's been demonstrated in every state in which pot has been legalized that there are serious side effects for doing that. One of them is that kids can get access to drugs much more easily. And drug usage among young kids is extremely damaging. Just using pot as an example, from the time a person starts using the maturation process stops. On top of that their mental abilities are reduced for pot decreases their ability to concentrate, even when they are not high. So that means their reasoning power is reduced. Why anyone would be for increasing the odds of that happening to anyone is to me incomprehensible. There is no way that I could support such endeavors and still claim I love my fellow man for what has loving my fellow man have do with increasing the odds of their self destruction. That is the opposite of being a friend.
Befriending an addict has nothing to do with making drug usage acceptable. It has everything to do with loving your fellow man enough to lend a helping hand to those who are at that time incapable of helping themselves. Increasing the odds of creating more addicts is not loving our fellow man. It is exactly the opposite of doing so.
But I have no way to prove that will be the result. Although I think I have some good evidence that I'm right, it's not as solid as some libertarians might think (I'm not a libertarian). So if people feel otherwise, I understand.
