What you are inferring is, If we were to legalise heroin tomorrow everybody would use heroin. How many people here would start using heroin? I bet nobody would. Oh yeah, I need the government to take care of me. I don’t want to use heroin, so I need these laws.~ Ron Paul (1935-08-20 age:82)
It is not quite that simple. If heroin were legalised, Altria (née Philip Morris tobacco) would flood the airwaves with ads designed to convince people that their brand of menthol heroin-lite made from genetically enhanced poppies, wink wink, was harmless and made you irresistible to the opposite sex. Just as with tobacco, horny teenagers would fall for it.
