The amount of misnomers and fallacies concerning the topic of drugs is just incredible. They are such a taboo subject for governments and certain organizations and bodies. The amount of lies that 'medical studies' have told relating to drugs is overwhelming. To understand the realm of illegal drugs one mustn't ignore it or distort the truth relating to it because untruths do more damage in this case than lies. For example illegal drugs have successfully been used in the treatment of mental disorders and other medical cases, therefore to say illegal drugs are completely negative is a stupid view point. On the other side of the spectrum you have people who would tell you that there should be no control what so ever, that drugs should be available where ever, when ever and for anyone. I believe this stance can also cause a great deal of harm, particularly those with medical disorders that illegal drugs can worsen and also to addicts who need help. My view is exactly in the center of this, I think drugs should be legalized and available to those who wish to use them. I believe that systems could be put in place to avoid strong negative consequences, for example when you go to the doctors and he gives you a perscription and there are certain criteria that you will have met in order to be given that prescription i.e you have a healthy heart, you do not have psychotic episodes etc. I'm not saying you should have to visit a doctor to obtain drugs but I am saying a 13 year old should not have the right to take drugs that were made legal and I am saying that for people with serious medical conditions certain criteria should be met before they could be given any drugs. That's a rough summary of my stance on this matter.
