True. The "alcoholism is a disease" thing is Bogosity in itself.
However, there ARE addictive drugs. Some people have a hard time with "not taking the drug."
Although, you're correct... that is the solution, but for some people it's not that easy. Someone hooked on meth isn't going to just wake up and go, "You know what. I'm not gonna do this anymore." Usually to "Stop taking the drug" they need some sort of help.
Although, with a lot of drugs that the "government thinks is evil" I know a lot of people who have tried those drugs several times, then just decided, "Nah, this is stupid" and have stopped.
Another thing I'm curious about. If the dangerous drugs are legalized... what does that mean exactly? Would people be able to go to the store and buy some pot? How about the drugs that are claimed to be more addictive? Could they just stroll down to the store and pick a bunch up? Would there be regulations that the store or pharmacy or whatever, would have to put in place in order to prevent people from buying too much or unsafe amounts? Then what? They'd have to go to someone else to get the drug that the stores won't sell to them.
Of course, it's much safer than buying the drugs from Pablo in some back alley, or live in fear that the cops are going to bust down your door cause you had some weed. However, there are some things I don't get about how it would be regulated if legal.
