Drug laws are doing the most harm. Drugs should be decriminalized. Provided they do not harm anyone else, adults in a free society should be able to ingest whatever substance they want. Making drugs illegal make their impact on society much worse. The "drug war" is an abject failure by any rational measure.

if succesful people are pot heads, they should be proud to pay taxes on thier dope, but that takes the fun out of it for them it should be free with no taxes for cancer patients and such alotof the rich pot smokers kinda like electric cars to cheat the taxes on gasoline to save the planet

The only benefit of todays commercial tobacco is the revenue the govt receives from the sale of legal smokes The user doesn’t get high and only feels somewhat of A calming effect ,if any. Not much benefit For the cost involved . Most parents today Accept the idea marijuana should be legalized and causes little if any harm. However they Forget the same nice guy that sells them Their daily joints, also probably peddles crack or meth to their kids. An illegal drug dealer is still an illegal drug dealer, unless you believe an illegal immigrant from mexico is ok, but an illegal foreign terrorist immigrant is not so good , Sorry, but Illegal , is still illegal

It is coffee.

Have you ever been at a place of work when a coffee machine isn't working? You'll find people who will literally walk off work. Many insist that coffee should be a perk provided by the employer. Do you ever find employees demanding that their employer provide tea's, hot chocolate, juice, pop?

Some are so addicted that they cannot even be sociable until they get their fix. People from all over the political spectrum, from many different religions and cultural backgrounds are obsessed with coffee.

Nicotiana tabacum, no doubt.

Although the percentage of people that use it in the United States is declining, it is still a whopping 20%.

It is one of the most addictive drugs in the world, many claim that it is more addictive than heroin.

And, it is what is referred to as a "gateway drug", but ALL of the drugs it is a "gateway" to are less harmful!

The terrible health effects of using it are well known, but people use it anyway. The deaths and injuries that it causes are in the tens millions, and the national cost the users incur is in the billions of dollars every year.

And yet, there is very little effort to eradicate it!
