Quote from: jejejejeffjoe on June 19, 2004, 02:37:00 PMWhat conclusion should we reach from these number?jeffjoe...not to be rude but I think a lot of the time you aren't even paying attention to the discussion, and u just interject some sort of challenge.Those stats were in response to the above poster who talked about illegal drugs being dangerous. It was an extension to my claim that alcohol causes many more deaths than all illicit drugs combined.
What conclusion should we reach from these number?
Yes Alcohol is a huge killer when it comes to drugs. I have a problem with Alcohol myself. But that is a perfect example of what can happen if there were no laws against them. Because Alcohol if used reponsibly won't kill you and can actually be healthy. But Obviously it isn't used properly. Otherwise there wouldn't be so much death from it.The reason the Drug death is so low is because there are laws against it. If they were repealled it could be double or more. Who Knows.
I take it that you use extasy or whatever you want to call it. So it's always hard to argue with someone on drugs because they only see the good. And know matter what you show them they always think it won't happen to them because "they are responsible".
But remember the Stupid people out there. Who don't know better. You're going to say well they should know better and it's there fault. Liberal thinking at it's best. But there needs to be Government intervintion at some point. Wether you like it or not. That's the way "Real Life" goes

I'd like to know what you feel they indicate.Ok I am sorry that I misunderstood.The only conclusion I can draw is one of hypocritical laws...Look at deaths from tobaco...alcohol...and prescription drugs yet these are legal.

Cars also kill due to irresponsible people. Should we make cars illegal?
If you want to eat diseased meat or contaminated vegetables, we would not have the right to stop you according to your line of reasoning
