7.2 discussion Pt 2
Completely agree with the quote “Nothing has to stay the same. If a dogma is not working, no matter how strong and immovable it seems, you can cast it aside and start anew” (Hari, 2015, p. 235). Our laws are a bit outdated and with to scientific method behind them, the drugs that are chosen to be illegal and the ones that aren’t, it is not based on any credible evidence, they aren’t illegal because they are worse for you, or the other way around they aren’t legal because they are better for you it’s all who they are associated with. The prohibition on something is never going to happen, all that will happen is cause a financial strain on the whole country because our prison will be bursting with people. This plays with the old saying if something is illegal people will want it more. Threaten drug addicts and impose severe pain on them if they continue, “this was the best way to make them wish to keep using drugs“ (Hari, 2015, p. 237).
