Day 20: Your views on drugs and alcohol.

I believe in the legalization of drugs.  I believe we are fighting a useless and expensive war on drugs much like the Prohibition.

It is cheaper and more effective to create drug rehab program for those unfortunate people who become addicted. 

I also believe that people with addictive personalities are going to get addicted to something whether that substance is illegal or not.  Additionally, if recreational drugs are legalized, they can be regulated for safety.

Now, having said that, I have never taken illegal drugs.  I’ve been around people, willingly and not, who were smoking pot and I got a little second hand buzz.  This only gave me a hell of a headache and turned me off to the whole thing.

I’ve also never been much of a drinker.  And I am completely paranoid about Driving Under the Influence.

I will NOT drink if I plan to be behind the wheel of a car – not even ONE drink.  And I won’t ride with someone who’s been drinking.

Now, having said that, I’ve gotten stuck at a couple of parties in my youth when the designated driver broke their promise and drank anyway.  Because of this, and because I really only trust myself not to drink, I am usually the designated driver.

I also trust Moo not to drink if I am drinking.  However, I hate to drink alone so this means that Moo and I don’t drink when we go out.

In fact, I laughingly say that the only place I drink is DisneyWorld.  It’s one of the few places where the transportation is totally handled by someone else and the alcohol flows freely – especially the delightful Grey Goose Citron frozen lemonade at EPCOT.  YUM!!!  So I can drink, a professional is driving and everyone is safe.  YAY!
