"You can't take it back or make it about someone else."
You, however, can twist it into what it is not, sprinkle in unrelated matters, refuse to talk about what it is and make the whole conversation about nothing.
I am arguing that there are reasons to revisit how we approach drugs, ways to save and even generate money, ways to use law enforcement resources and prison space more wisely and create a healthier society and safer streets. I have been vague about specific changes because my goal is to first identify the problem before trying to solve it.
You, on the other hand, refuse to recognize the problem, speak vaguely of some "nightmare" you have not shown will come to pass, and advocate policies with a track record of expensive failure stretching back decades. Your position is so incoherent you can only defend it by changing the subject to the TYP.
Ronald Reagan said, "If you want less of something, tax it." Taxing and regulating drugs can mean many things. There are many drugs available only with a doctor's prescription, others you must purchase over a pharmacist's counter, others you can grab right off the shelf. With alcohol and tobacco we impose an age limit, ID, special stores. There are many commodities for which we require a license to sell or buy.
A change in drug policy can mean many things, but you are terrified to speak of anything but "legalizing hard drugs" for fear that you will look yet more hapless and confused. I am also advocating use of free-market tools and an enhancement of personal liberty, so I also have core American values on my side.
It's no mystery why you keep trying to change the subject and reframe my argument. You can't win if you play fair.
