11% Of Likely Voters Favor Legalizing, Regulating Cocaine

Chris | InformationLiberation

The prohibitionist mentality is still alive and well.

Via Rasmussen Reports:
Voters may be sympathetic to legalizing marijuana with the proper controls, but they strongly draw the line at making cocaine legal.

Eighty-four percent (84%) of Likely U.S. Voters are opposed to legalizing cocaine even if it is regulated like alcohol and tobacco. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 11% favor legalizing cocaine under those terms.
While 1 in 10 is pretty decent, it's still pathetically low, I don't know if this is due to Rasmussen's "likely voters" polling style or because Americans are morons.

Here's a newsflash for those who support prohibition: Cocaine is illegal, yet it can be bought in every town in America. Legalizing it would take it out of the hands of "criminals" and put it into the hands of corporations like Walmart and Costco. It would mean lower prices, better quality product, safer drugs, and less crime.

"But wouldn't that mean children could buy it?!", I can hear prohibitionists screech.

Guess what, they can buy it now despite the state's draconian laws, how many of them are using it? If cocaine was sold at Walmart, chances are they wouldn't sell it to children, as is they regularly choose not to stock certain products their management feels are inappropriate for kids, the same would apply to cocaine.

The greatest advantage of ending prohibition would be the removal of the number one excuse used to justify the U.S. police state, "the war on drugs," which is really the war on liberty. Even if you're a rabid prohibitionist, just imagine your home getting "mistakenly" raided and your dog, or you personally, getting pumped full of lead by a rabid government goon-squad looking for plant matter. Then your pipe dreams of "protecting children from drugs" wouldn't matter so much, now would they?

A fascist police state is an infinitely greater threat to a "law abiding" citizen's life than any drugged up coke head, you can fight back against a coke head, and everyone will realize and understand you were in the right. Fighting back against a paramilitary SWAT team "who got the wrong house" isn't quite so simple.

87113 I love the way some self-righteous nutcases will do things like declaring 90% of the population to be morons. Well done. Very persuasive.

I assume, 'moron' - apt comment tag, by the way - that you subscribe to the 'Majority is always right' mentality. Basically, as long as 51% or more say some thing is good or bad, they must be right. No matter what. I love the way popularity sucking tools look down on people with opinions about actual peace in our streets and safety in our homes. You were even more persuasive than this article. I am impressed at your tact and diplomacy.
