Drug addiction is a mental illness, not a crime. We have Alcoholics Anonymous, which helps people take back their lives, why not have the same thing for drugs?

@4VXP5HTfrom New York  answered…2yrs

Only if we summarily execute those who sell to people under age 25. (So brain fully develops. Marijuana should be legal over age 21.

@4Q4C63Lfrom Nevada  answered…2yrs

Yes, but level harsh penalties against the user if they hurt someone while under the influence.

@534HWNPfrom New York  answered…2yrs

Instead of jail time there should be mandatory rehab, and parole for that same as jail. They are still using in jails, so that only perpetuates the problem.

@4S6KBRMfrom Virginia  answered…2yrs

No, we have a drug problem in this country and it's not likely due to the fact that people just want to break the law to use drugs. That being said, making it criminal is only costing tax payers money in retaining individuals that made poor choices, but are still susceptible to using when they are free, if we spent the same amount ensuring that people recover and educating others on the dangers and effective ways of coping with life, then we'd all be better off. One bad decision shouldn't ruin your life, but it should turn it around.

I believe that if you have nicotine and alcohol legal then why not other drugs. But I would prefer that recreational use of any and all drugs, including tobacco and alcohol be prohibited. I do think that medical use of all drugs should be expanded.

@4THMGRMfrom Connecticut  answered…2yrs

Yes, but drugs can also be used as weapons (i.e. as poisons), and hence should be controlled. Recreational use should be legal.

@8H96Y52 from Rhode Island answered…2yrs

Yes, and free people currently serving time for nonviolent drug offenses, and expunge nonviolent drug charges from criminal records.

@4Q89XTPfrom California  answered…2yrs

Yes, but selling, transporting or supplying drugs should be illegal. The point is to not punish drug users, the real victims of drug abuse.

@967QZB9 from Virginia answered…5hrs

No. We should increase punishment for illegal drug manufacturers and dealers and increase funding for addiction prevention and rehabilitation.

@967QDDV from Florida answered…6hrs

@9672CR5Democrat from Iowa answered…21hrs

Yes, treat addiction as a medical issue and get people the help that they need. This will reduce drug abuse and is far more effective than criminalizing it.

@966ZFBN from Michigan answered…22hrs

Personally No, but this should be a state rather than federal decision.

@966JJ65 from Ohio answered…1 day

No, drug possession should be a federal offense and punishable with death.

Change drug use from a crime problem to a mental health problem, and help those who are incarcerated.

@965YL77 from New York answered…2 days

I believe that drug users should not be criminally punished unless the drug use resulted in the harm of another person (driving while on drugs, assaulting someone while on drugs, etc). If someone is caught using drugs and they are not harming anyone, the drugs should be confiscated and that person should be sent to mandatory drug rehabilitation if it is a hard drug and/or large quantity (case-by-case basis). I also think that people who deal hard drugs (excluding marijuana) should be convicted, as these people are knowingly profiting off of other people’s addictions.

@965S5HS from Georgia answered…2 days

We need to give help to those addicted to drugs and reduce sentences for those already serving time from previously unnecessary long or mandatory terms

@965GXH7 from California answered…2 days

I believe that we should not consider certain drugs illegal such as marijuana but continue to consider harsher drugs such as methamphetamine.

@965B7WC from Texas answered…2 days

I think that drugs should be used in a right way and not be abused by people who just use it for no reason.

@964YMFL from Virginia answered…2 days

no but there is an exeption for over the counter drugs and prescribed drugs like medicin.

@964Q428 from Missouri answered…3 days

Yes, for most drugs, and release all people imprisoned for minor drug charges, such as use and possession.

@964L94G from Florida answered…3 days

Drugs should be decriminalized, but there should also be increased funding for addiction prevention centers and rehab efforts.

@964KCV7 from Texas answered…3 days

No, but only fine users if they're non-violent. Only imprison dealers.
