Maybe this is the way to deal with the Drug Dealers

globeandmail.com : Vigilante violence shakes serene N.B. tourist town

I see people selling drugs on the street in Toronto and Calgary all the time. You got to under how they can openly break the law and not get arrested.

Re: Maybe this is the way to deal with the Drug Dealers

Yay I'm always up for a little well directed violence-hey the dealers can be used as bait in lobster traps to boost the catch.

Re: Maybe this is the way to deal with the Drug Dealers

It is a terrible message to send to your youth in the community, that when the law won't fix it to take matters into your own hands. You can blame drug dealers all day for drugs but do not let parents off the hook for a lack of parenting and maintaining a presence in there children's lives.

Lately criminals have more rights than thier victims-to these parents they are being responsible-they are protecting thier children-by whatever means necessary-because no one else is willing to do that. You can be the best parent in the world and teach your children to say no to drugs-but It'll always be a better world where these drugs are not available to anyone.

And that world will never ever exist as long as people, including all these delusional parent's kiddies, want drugs.

Re: Maybe this is the way to deal with the Drug Dealers

There is a very simple way to get rid of the violence associated with drug dealers - particularly easy in the case of pot slingers.

Yup. Take away their market. Sell it in State-run stores like liquor stores and tax the **** out of it. They could sell it cheaper than the street dealers and would cause their demise.

Re: Maybe this is the way to deal with the Drug Dealers

Yes, control distribution and tax it just to the point people don't grow it illegally.

Pot actually is kinda tricky though...it's much easier to grow and roll your own joints than it is tobacco. Tobacco and booze are much harder to make on your own, so they better lend themselves to taxation.

My personal feeling is this has had strong sway over the government's outlawing it and keeping it that way...

If you had the option to get it legally and there were the same punishments for trying to transport illegally into the US... Wouldn't that eliminate most of the violence? Even if people did grow their own weed, it would typically be in smaller quantities. Limit the amount that a person can have on them at one time... Also make it illegal to purchase from a unlicensed source... Why would people take the chance if they didn't have too?

Re: Maybe this is the way to deal with the Drug Dealers

Nope, meeting violence and crime with more violence just creates more violent people.
We should turn the other cheek when these peeps commit crimes against us. It hasn't been tried on a large scale, so it would surely be successful in getting these teddy bears to stop what they are doing....

GT-I think the issues could be addressed. Just pointing out, it's a bit different.
