    I don't care what anyone says. Making cocaine legal is a really dumb and stupid idea. I had an 18 year long cocaine addiction, and from personal experience. Legalizing hard drugs is dumb and stupid.

    In America they have more people and take more prescription drugs.

    Without people going to jail, who will be the cheap labourers? This wouldn't work in America because both prison AND health care are just things to make profit in America. Unless someone is made rich whilst others are made poorer, it's not welcome in the states.

    That would be the day I run around naked in the snow if the USA and Canada got smart and actually did this. Then we won't have to worry about getting the excitement for doing something bad. We'll just get bored of it and sick of it and throw away the drugs. It's that simple... But... yeah... they is too greedy to have common sense.

    Highly misleading stats! Population of America is 323.1 Million, so 0.016% of the population died of drug related causes. Population of Portugal is 10.32 Million, so 0.004% died of drug related causes. So per percentage only 4 times more people died in America than in Portugal. So still a large problem but not as shocking as it was made to be
