    i for one do not indulge in the sticky-icky, used to, and loved the hell out of it. but i got a girl who didnt like that idea too much, thought id be better off getting a job and throwing green paper away on redlobster, movies, rings etc. but lets say we let the man open up some shops like bars.. increase punishment for posession, only allow smoking in such said bars, and raise hell on anyone who drives high.. i mean easily we could pull tons of cash into the economy

    I do believe posts on this forum are supposed to be gun related in some way, shape or form. With all due respect I expect this thread to get locked soon.

    I see you are a newly registered user, however for future reference this forum is run pretty tight to it's stated intentions as a firearms forum.

    the economy is in a downfall, we all know this, would our ammo continue to go up? would long time consumer product supplier midway usa stop charging so much? im just being creative, so i respect your authority as ''senior member'' but i posted under legal section. and the economy does afflict guns, gun rights, trade and traffic, laws, taxes and bans. so go shake your fist elsewhere please.

    Well Prohibitions work.

    Just ask Al Capone about alcohol and Hector Marroquin about guns.

    Like average shooter said, this forum is about guns. Feel free to start topics about how the economy directly impacts ammo, guns, whatever shooting sports topics you'd like, but please leave the discussion of illegal drugs to a site where it's appropriate. Thankfully this is not one of them.

    Yes it should be legalized, but not because of the economy. It should be legalized because the government shouldn't be telling people what to do with their bodies. But that's just my opinion. The fact of the matter is that at the moment it is illegal.

    I don't use drugs, and wouldn't even if they were legal, but I don't think it's my place to force my choices on others. And when it comes to a person's own body, I don't think it should be the government's place either.

    That being said, marijuana is illegal, so don't use it.

    Marijuana sucks because if you use marijuana then you're a hippie and hippies suck.

    your right! i mean who would have that of illegal drugs having anything to do with guns, man... i mean its not like like the millions of pounds of marijuana bought illegaly each year '' like it has been for the century'' would have anything to do with guns.. except for when you buy it from pablo and he buys a new glock from a 14 year old gang banger wanna be who steals it from his grandpa (could be you) to earn some potential street credit with the latin kings in chi town.. i mean that never happens right? or the funds fall in the hands of terrorist, read a book, cause it does.. point being. its a creative idea, your stuck in your ways and thats understandable. i know i know rock and roll music is from the devil and marijuana makes you do terrible things like rob banks and what not..your a hipocrit, your whats wrong with society not me. you turn your head from whats wrong and ignore it.. who would of thought moldy bread could cure infections, all im saying is be more open to ideas. marijuana is legal for medicinal purposes.. can't argue with them educated folk like doctors huh? drugs and guns go hand in hand. neither is going away. so i offer an idea of making it work.. take the coin from pablo.

    I'm sorry OP, but your off topic. Try the APS link in the upper right hand corner.

    Legalizing drugs did wonders for China, bring back the good ol days of the Opium parlors. WHy work, when government gives u free money and all the drugs you want. Drugs being expensive and illegal make it less prone for your average kid to start becoming a junky.

    Al Capone thrived, beacuse everyone wanted their booze. YOu don't see Colombian drug lords ruling entire cities in USA anymore? Well,except Obama and friends.. OOPS. entire countries maybe ? :scrutiny:

    Totally off topic thread that deserves to get locked.

    We could solve the drug issue by executing drug dealers summarily. China had a huge opium problem and the communists took care of it. You don't fix problems by making them worse.

    Off topic unless you throw it, then this needs to be moved to non-firearm weapons.
