I believe in legal­iz­ing mar­i­juana. It's safer than alco­hol, and keep­ing the safer drug ille­gal, while mak­ing the more dan­ger­ous one legal, is unsci­en­tific and illogical.

But past that, I think any drug should be legal. If you take a drug, it doesn't affect me. By what right do I stop you? If you steal to sup­port your drug habit, or com­mit assault while high, then obvi­ously that requires ret­ri­bu­tion, but the prob­lem is not the drugs; it's the rob­bery or assault.

How­ever, I should not have to buy you drugs. That's not fair. Thus, I don't sup­port legal­iz­ing drugs for those receiv­ing wel­fare or unem­ploy­ment insur­ance. (Also, I obvi­ously don't sup­port wel­fare or unem­ploy­ment insur­ance. Pri­vate char­i­ties do it bet­ter. Look at how suc­cess­ful pri­vate char­i­ties have been at trans­form­ing people's lives, and how suc­cess­ful gov­ern­ment wel­fare has been at ruin­ing them.)
