Two Questions

Question 1: Are you in favor of lowering or abolishing the drinking age?

Question 2: Are you in favor of legalizing marijuana?


I'm including a poll, but I think a written justification would be worthwhile for a good discussion.

Personally, I expect people to attribute my views to my age demographic. (I'm 20 and in college.) However, due to health reasons, I can't drink. Moreover, I've never smoked even a cigarette. Perhaps I should rephrase. I haven't smoked anything which the act of smoking involves inhaling. Thus, cigars are the exception I'm referring to.

Anyway, to the first question, I just don't understand the age limit. We are witnessing multiple generations of 18 year old age limit of drinking and not witnessing any side effects. If 18 is the age for an adult in all aspects of American culture, drinking should be no exceptions. Period.

As for question 2, I don't see any reason to continue our war on drugs. It would help depopulate prisons, save billions in legal fees, save billions of hours for both legal and enforcement establishment, and would allow treatment for some patients who need medical marijuana. I see no reason not to have this legalized.

I'm in favor of the first (lowering to 18), not sure about the second, really.

Okay, so when a 20 year old soldier comes home from fighting in Iraq, possibly after suffering serious injury in combat, you believe he should be arrested if anybody buys him a beer.

I think lowering the drinking age doesn't effect the people you're trying to effect. 18-19-20 year olds will find ways to drink if they want to. No getting around that. But by lowering the drinking age, you're skewing the demographic even younger when it comes to alcohol. Instead of it being commonplace for 16-17 year olds to be drinking like it is now, maybe it starts being 12 and 13 year olds.

I don't care for marijuana(or alcohol for that matter) but I also wouldn't see the point in legalization. It's already readily accessible. It really is not hard to find a dealer. The penalties are also not all that severe for getting caught. I kinda look at it from the standpoint of someone who does smoke. I'd rather take my chances the way it is now than have it get legalized only to see the government tax the hell out of it.

mj should be regulated and taxed like tobbaco and alcohol...

windfall revenues for governments at all levels, coupled with savings from no longer having to pay the enormous cost of the war on drugs and reducing the number of prisoners we have to support, by freeing all mj related convicts immediately...

decriminalizing mj would really jazz up our ecomony and even help pay for the iraq war (that would be a whole lot of joints and blunts, but we're up to the challenge)...
