As a New Yorker I can tell you this is having two negative effects on the city.

1. Times Square is more miserable then usual.
2. Like any other big event it's pulling cops out of Brooklyn I.E. areas that need them to baby sit tourists.

As a general rule of thumb it's best to always avoid Times Square and the 8 or so blocks around it. Unless your tourist in which case please stay there.

If you live there (I have never been and have no desire to even get close to the cess pool) wouldn't you avoid the square like ebola anyway? Is there something there that you need to do? I live in MPLS and although downtown mpls is the center of the city and where all the nightlife is - I haven't been "downtown" in years. No reason to go there....EVER. Unless you go to a T-Wolves game, which no one does cause they suck. Only thing to go to down there is First Ave where all of the good shows are. But you can park on the other side and not have to deal with our "Block E" where "everything is".....

The rate of people seeking treatment for drug addiction rose by over 50%. That means less people on drugs and more people seeking help for the addictions they have.

No one cares if shit bird drug addict does xyz to themselves, but they disrupt A LOT a long the way and the destruction is a large swath far and wide.....we will pay for it as a whole - the money for the "drug war" will just be money for the "fix me war".....

I don't have the answers. I have great solutions that no one likes. There will be a time when people will say enough is enough.....we will have enough victims that they will be loud one day....until then, turds will be turds and continue to be turds cause jail is not big deal.

The "1%" problem is growing...

It's not worth it.
The libertarian "it should be legal, what, because some people may have an issue it isn't?" argument is an idiotic one. It doesn't actually address why something should be legal, just why it shouldn't be illegal.

And it runs into huge flaws because it's only used for something that individual wants to be legal. You can easily find things illegal that they happily agree shouldn't be legal, without them realizing the logic they're applying is solely personal opinion.

Which is why I laugh at the MJ argument. "Cause it has medical benefits" yea for the .05%, the rest of you just want to get high.

THIS

Sure. If you let it, almost anything can fuck up your life. But you know whose problem that is? YOURS. Making things illegal doesn't change that, it just makes problems for other people.

The problem is that YOUR problem becomes MY PROBLEM then infringes on my FREEDOMS and LIBERTIES, per definition. I just don't understand the idea of "well just open up everything for everyone" - people can't even handle what is legal, and you want to open up Pandora's box to a gamut of garbage......

I have read some things and heard on some tubes and radios that there is a "lack of things to do" in relation to the NFL experience there....

I remember when the SB was here in Minneapolis, they used the Civic Center as a home base and did "The NFL Experience". Meet and greets with players, coaches, NFL people, etc. Stars, kick field goals, run relays and the top people each couple hours ran against people like Barry Sanders (have a friend that ran against him - was funny to watch) things like that.

One commentator said, once you leave this immediate area, you wouldn't even know the SB was here....weird.

And I think people are forgetting the game is in Jersey......

@ Bats.

I hear you. We have two bad choices:

1. Make them illegal and deal with all the consequences of illegality: empowered and enriched organized crime, increased crime rate across the board to support drug habits, poor quality drugs that effect users' health, etc. This is our current situation.

2. Make them legal, or decriminalize them and deal with the possibility of increased usage. This is our current situation with alcohol, for example.

We've been doing 1. above for 40 years, to no effect. I feel it's time to try something new. A few more articles:

Retired police Capt. Peter Christ argues in favor of legalization.

Portugal decriminalized all drugs 12 years ago and replaced it with a system to treat addicts, similar to my Liverpool example earlier. Drug abuse in Portugal has fallen by half in that period.

And I agree that meth is nasty, nasty shit that destroys your brain. But the reason people turn to meth is that it's easy to make locally, unlike cocaine and heroin. Still I feel decriminalizing it and getting these people into a treatment program is a better use of the money than what we're doing currently. The addict is going to take the meth either way.

I see people barley hanging on with a sober life everyday - I can't imagine throwing drugs on top of it.....

I simply believe in freedom and personal responsibility.

There is no such thing as personal responsibility in the US. It's always someone else's fault.

If we instilled an actual idea of personal responsibility in this country, we could legalize every hard drug ever invented for all I care. As long as the users then understand that they don't get to go to hospitals on my dime.

*ding.

Need to see if I can find data on blood dialysis patients. See what the increase is over the last 20 years.....

I actually like that States are doing it on a State level, the way laws were supposed to be done. I just hope Obama keeps his....ah crap....he just talked about it didn't he. What an idiot.

State issues need to stay at State level. Glad it is in those States, flock to those areas, let them pay the price. I don't want to be around it, so I won't move to those States. Problem solved.

There was an experiment in Liverpool in the 90s. All drugs could be obtained by prescription if A) the person registered with the gov't. B) they attended a once-weekly narcotics anonymous meeting. The drugs were clean, cost the users $5 a month or some pittance, etc. The result: theft dropped by half, prostitution by 2/3s, etc. etc. It basically destroyed the illicit drug market in that city b/c no one could compete with the gov't on price. Why we can't have a sensible conversation about drug laws and illegality in this country is so frustrating. At least we're getting somewhere with the legalization of MJ in CO and WA.

What about the long term effects on the body, addiction, need more over time to have same effect, people driving around on narcotics, people working on narcotics, etc etc etc.

I read the price of MJ in CO a couple weeks ago, and isn't like 2x-3x more than the black market? Not sure how that is going to pan out. It is an experiment, and I am glad I don't live there. It will be ineteresting that is for sure.

It will kickstart all sorts of rules at work, laws, etc etc into what will be considered legal and what wont. (and even spawn some serious privacy issues) For instance. At work, we don't have random checks but the city public works has random weekly checks. It is a lottery. Your name comes up, go pee in a cup. I am sure employers in CO are battling with all sorts of issues.....again....glad I don't live/work in CO or WA.

But, if we get in a critical incident, we go to the hospital and draw blood. No questions asked. (which is why I took time off from work when I was taking the meds)

Well, reading everything is interesting - but remember one thing. Not even doctors can be trsuted to use the stuff and give it out in a helpful or responsible manner. So now people want to open up the flood gates even more!? I don't find that helpful at all.

There are already solutions that are 10x greater than morphine that aren't as damaging, there are things on the medics belts that are better than morphine. Can't remember what it is called, but I believe it is better across the board. Not discounting the possible applications of each item, but I have zero to no faith in "medical professionals" making a healthy decision for people.

I know my opinions and attitude towards this stuff is skewed, but my daily intake of seeing how out of control the current situation of rampant abuse daily medication is, is enough to take the stance of "put on the damn parking break and lets reatach the wheels to this bus before we go any further".

Shit is broken guys. Badly. I took some time off from work cause my back went out, and for the first time in my life I felt I had no other choice (other than doing physical therapy daily and chiro daily)than to take the narcotics route. It took me (someone who isn't a hibitual ANYTHING and I even hate taking an advil as well) all of 2 days to realize why people abuse the stuff. I went from not walking to walking in 48 hours. I quit the pills after 4 days and increased my physical therapy.

It is a great discussion, and don't think I don't agree with you guys on some level, but saying Meth and other TOXIC synthetics that have no place in the human body should be used for medical reasons......is just....it isn't ok.

Lastly, the main problem is potency. We can make things so pure, it is scary.

I remember when this came out. I appreciated the unique environment, but IIRC the reviews said was very linear, and the gameplay seemed very consolish, neither of which appealed to me. I hope this failure doesn't discourage AAA studios from coming up with new IP.

That explains 95% of all AAA games in the last 10+ years.....

Holy fucking shit, you gotta be kidding me, so Marijuana, LSD and MDMA are Schedule I drugs. Cocaine, Opium, and Meth are Schedule II. Well now there you have it. I have to admit that I didnt know that, but it makes sense I guess in a twisted, paranoid, fucked up greedy way.

If you research and fully understand the schedules, it makes perfect sense.

Is that a nicer way of telling me that I'm ignorant?? Well since they teach you all that at cop school I guess, how bout explaining to me why there is a ban on research of Schedule I drugs, unlike the drugs listed under Schedule II??

http://www.rsdhope.org/schedule-or-classes-of-drugs.html

Most important part of that very short info is:
The main difference between a Schedule, or Class, 1 and 2 is whether or not the drug is deemed to have a valid medical application.

Don't need "cop school" to look it up and have very general knowledge about why one this is "ok" and one isn't. Now it should make perfect sense.

(cop school part: Those are federal schedules, but states just adopt the same schedules)

Yeah, nearly the same here. I got the red one with the new GOW and since than I have only bought Beyond:Two Souls and Madden 25. Everything else I have played has been a PS+ download. That's good and bad of course. I need to get off my cheap ass and pick up Injustice and The Last of Us. So much games...so little time...

Yea I got the same one, such a great deal. Thing SO DAMN QUIET! I love it. Looks cool too with red case and red controller.
