    I don't necessarily disagree with you, but using this logic, should we also stop locking up murderers and rapists?

    Maybe we only have half the problem now that we would have if drugs were legal. Maybe it does work for a lot of people.

    What? Did you say ruining there lives by putting them in jail? What about the lives this loser ruined by selling and making these drugs! Prison is not supposed to for rehab it's supposed to be for punishment you can't rehab a drug dealer you gotta punish him to where he never wants to see drugs again. We are talking about a guy who had every chance on earth to find that good job or another path but chose to be a parasite. If he had sold his death to one of your family members would you still be hoping for a different path or jail time for him? One thing that is wrong in this picture are the one who has the bleeding heart for the dealers and manufactures of this hell. He had all the help he could handle but turned his back on it, remember this is not his first offense. You feel sorry for him I hope he does every day of the 8 years.

    8 years is not enough for scumbag Summers . . . not even close. I guess I'd think differently if I hadn't lost one of my children unexpectedly. It all started with drugs.

    People make bad decisions. Those decisions have consequences. Ever done illegal drugs? I haven't because I chose not to. Imagine that. Making a choice not to do something wrong.

    You gotta help it hurt you. It always starts with a choice. The object of the addiction isn't a free moral agent like you are. Nothing judgmental about that.

    It definitely leads to a lot of junk food.

    There aren't many similarities between selling drugs and the acts of murder and rape. Dealing drugs is all about supply and demand. Murder and rape generally involves a very disturbed person attacking an unwilling victim

    . Every drug addict I ever met started with alcohol. Wouldn't the first drug be considered the gateway drug.?
