Yeah!! We should let anyone do whatever the hell they want as long as no one else is hurt! Public health be damned, right? This is the biggest (and stupidest) argument that pro-drug morons make to justify its use. Do you know how many people were hurt or killed to get your cocaine to you?

No, people are hurt and killed because it's a vicious business, and it's illegal because it's extremely harmful. Don't try to apply your stoner logic to cocaine. It doesn't work.

I don't do any illegal drugs and I agree that most drugs should be legal. Less people would get hurt if it could be regulated, and people should have the right to do whatever they want to their own bodies as long as it doesn't hurt someone else. The "war on drugs" in the US is just adding to the problem in my opinion. Sending loads of people to jail for a non-violent crime just doesn't make sense. Not to mention the massive Mexican drug cartels that get people hurt and killed would not even exist if they couldn't make a profit if the drugs they sell are legal.

Well, extending your logic, I supposed if I see someone slashing himself on the wrist, or witness someone attempt to hang herself, I shouldn't interfere. Because, after all, people can do whatever they want to their bodies so long as they don't interfere with our lives.

Doc, it's a vicious business because what they sell is illegal. If it was decriminalized, then a lot of the violence would go away because you could have a government regulated business.

#46 Are you in law enforcement or a medical professional? Then you should not interfere. Call one of the professionals and stay out of it. If someone is attempting to take their own life you aren't qualified to be involved if you don't have training dealing with that particular situation. Now when it comes to substance use, you should also mind you own business. You don't go up to every person you see drinking and get involved do you? However that substance is extremely dangerous. But it happens to be legal at this time so you stay out of it. If an illegal substance is being used by an adult, who is not friend or family, your opinion should be kept to yourself. It is only asking for trouble when you meddle where you don't belong.

46, I'm talking about laws. I don't think it should be illegal, that doesn't mean individual people can't be concerned about a family member or loved one if they are hurting themselves with drugs or in some other way. I also think assisted suicide should be legal, and it's someone's own choice if they want to take their life. Not saying that you shouldn't try to convince them otherwise, but if someone believes that their quality of life is terrible and won't ever get any better, then they should be able to make the decision to die. My mom always says that if when she gets old she is extremely sick and would have to be in the hospitals for the rest of her life, she would want to just end it instead of endure in misery until she dies naturally. Would it really be that wrong to help her do that if it was really what she wanted?

There is a market for violence free lab quality cocaine for testing and research purposes. If they can get it to Pfizer and Merck and Novartis without people being hurt and killed along the way, why can't they get it into CVS and Rite-Aid and Shoppers Drug Mart and Lawtons? Government regulation and taxation would keep there from being so many harmful additives, would make a bad batch infinitely more traceable and would certainly lower the amount of injuries caused by the unlawful trafficking of such high profit narcotics. And if they did OD, they'd have made payments into the health care system while buying it. Instead of the street corner sales that never pay taxes into the health care coffers.

Seems I have gotten thumbed down many times for my comment above. When you snort coke, you lose your self control, and can possibly hurt others. My friend tried it, and ended up killing his dog while he was high, and almost me as well.

suicide is one thing. assisted suicide is basically murder. "hey bib can you help me out? i wanna blow my brains out but i'm too scared to pull the trigger... mind shooting me in the head? thanks pal!"

58, assisted suicide cases usually have to do with a family and very sick (terminally ill) person in the hospital, where the sick person doesn't want to live anymore, and the family doesn't want to see the person suffering anymore, so the doctor or nurse basically poisons them through the IV. In those cases the person wouldn't have access to a gun or any other means to do it themselves.

Technically, 58, regular suicide is also murder. It's considered a crime to take any human's life, including your own, and if they catch you attempting suicide they can arrest you, same as if they caught you killing someone else. So there's really no difference.

So my friends mother went out to the train tracks and killed herself by a moving train. But it's not his business cause its her body right? Cause its not right for him to want her to live regardless she had no medical issues right?

I have a feeling you could've saved a lot of trouble explaining it to the person who called on you and even showing them your nasal spray. I don't even get how you confuse nasal spray with snorting coke...

"Or so I've heard" definitely means "I know from experience"! I do have one question for OP, why step out of the concert to use it? This is probably a dumb question (actually it is) but as someone who doesn't have allergies I have no clue!!

OP may have wanted to avoid that issue/accusation or was trying to be polite and not shove something up his nose in public. Needless to say, it backfired on our poor OP.

That's what I was thinking. No way in hell would I pay to wait outside and miss the concert. They should either refund the full ticket price or offer OP replacement tickets to another show. Or both. That's ridiculous.
