"It is important to realize drug use is self-destructive behavior and as such does not respond in a rational manner. Drugs are detrimental to the life, physiology and psychology of the user. Users care not what happens to their mind and body; they equally care not what the legal consequences are. But even with disregard for one"�s self, ingrained in the human psyche is an innate belief that if you are not harming someone else, you are not doing anything "wrong"�."

With the exception of this part, I think your article is well written and dead on. My only problem with this particular excerpt is that you say, "drug USERS," but go on to define the psyche of someone who ABUSES drugs. It would be ignorant to say that there is not a single person, let alone a major segment of the drug using demographic, that can use drugs responsibly and without becoming self-destructive. To lump them in with the abusers is insulting and it hurts your point. Obviously moreso with cannabis than other drugs, there is a HUGE population of responsible users that are punished unfairly. You illustrated the point that an otherwise law abiding drug abuser will be worse off going through prison; well, think about the person who has a family, career, and healthy lifestyle who gets put through that. That is a much greater societal harm, in my opinion, than when it happens to the drug ABUSER.

On another point, even in a state like mine (Colorado)with medical marijuana laws in place, the USER is still a criminal of sorts, regardless of their license. If you are one of the 80% of Colorado medical patients that list "chronic pain" as their medical condition, you are most likely full of sh**. HOWEVER, noone in their right mind would blame you for using the loophole to protect yourself from the criminal justice system. Except those who would rather you quit, and they have less say for what one puts in his/her body than the government (which shouldn't have ANY.)
