Question to liberals: Why should drugs be decriminalized? watch

    If Cannabis is already out there as you point out and can raise massive amounts of tax revenue why not legalize Cocaine and Heroin and tax that too, since those are widespread drugs as well?

    Unless of course you mean legalize all drugs?

    Do you know the difference between legalise and decriminalise?

    Having never studied Law, not quite. Assume I mean legalize in all senses. Also, I've never been a pothead, so I never had to learn the differences when being nicked for possession.

    Portugal has not decriminalized selling of drugs though from what I read on Wikipedia, only more or less personal possession.
    Which is exactly what I mentioned in my post should be done with the more severe drugs. I see little reason for soft drugs to not be as readily available as tobacco though.
