Do you think that states should move to ban "bath salts"?
I was reading through today’s news and found that some teenagers found a new high by sniffing bath salts. Please see this article http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2011-02-11-bathsalts11_ST_N.htm it is one of several when I did a search.
It turns out that every time a drug is added to a “forbidden list”, some chemist or curious teen finds a new way that is just a little different than the “illegal” way to get high.
I think that we need to stop the foolishness and let Darwin sort it out. If the parents can’t handle the problem and the kids insist on using drugs that kill or disable them, it is not the state’s problem. It is the problem of the parents and their insurance company.
Frankly I think allowing individuals to make decisions that do not harm others is a way to improve the race. This is the same reason that I don’t think helmets or seat belts should not be mandated by law. We have too many stupid people and we spend too much time protecting them from their own stupidity. They just breed and make more stupid people who, in turn, need protection. Eventually you lower the I.Q. and decision making ability of the whole human race.
Humans have always found ways to get high and alter their preceptions, no drug law, or prohibition will change that and the best we can do is make people aware of the problem then let them make their own decisions. The government’s only responsibility is to clean up the mess if they die in the street.
