You do not have a right to ingest substances of unknown chemical origin and expect us to pay for your treatment of something goes wrong or if you become addicted. If you want "freedom" move to a country like Somalia where the government can barely function and there is anarchy. Nobody will give a shit what you choose to snort, ingest or shove up your ass. And if the trip is not quite what you expected, you pay the price, not anyone else. That sounds a lot more just to me.
How much fucking money do you think gets spent on alcohol and tobacco related illnesses. Are you blind? Thats just 2 obvious examples.

Alcohol and tobacco are legitimate billion dollar industries that are highly regulated and employ people. Silk Road is a silly little website that still depends on illegally distributing drugs through conventional means. I'm so glad it was shut down and the owner will be in prison for a very very long time. Next up dirtbag Kim Dotcom.

Of course they did.. they went and built a police station in front of the busiest street for drugs... Everyone will move to the street the next block over and they will be much more careful about getting caught. This guy was advertising silk road on a forum with his standard email

I've always found the classy way to start an argument is to begin with an insult. It adds such a credibility to the rest of what you have to say.

So if the these currently illegal drugs were regulated, employed people, and were distributed legitimately, it would be alright.

Yes, and all have perfectly legitimate uses. I wouldn't crack down on Home Depot for selling you paint to sniff. I would crack down on silk road for preying on the weak, selling products of dubious origin and paying nothing to society.

Actually, the drugs were all high grade.

The hitmen were over-priced, according to people in the know.

corporations prey on people let alone the weak far worse than something like silk road does, if you watched tonights fifth estate, the sugar industry for instance. at least people going onto sites like silk road know they're approaching dangerous substances

Very interesting. No amount of money would entice me to risk my freedom though.
