    The why not is because I wasn't browsing youtube for
    those purposes.

    The video doesn't mean anything nor aimed at anyone
    it's just something I thought interesting.

    Meth is only really used in high dosages in the USA and the East Asia.

    Many pictures of this nature have been used many times for different drugs, you'll forgive me for not trusting it.

    And anyway it isnt individual drugs which cause a problem it is how people use them, and the only way to have any vague control over that is legal supply.

    From what I've seen, Meth is a big problem all over Australia. I'm guessing because MDMA, pills and coke is so expensive.

    You really think it's that simple?

    Drugs are easy to get hold of anyway. If you want to do drugs you can get them.
    Unfortunately because they're illegal the drug market is a black market meaning those drugs are likely to be of poor quality, often having dangerous adulterants, and you're quite likely be funding organised crime.

    Also addicts and those in trouble with drugs don't often get the help they need because they are treated as criminals rather than people with a medical problem.

    All of this is especially true of herion.

    Try thinking for yourself.

    Mexico: Decriminalization of the possession of small amounts of illegal drugs

    Mexico decriminalized the possession of small amounts of cannabis, cocaine and
    heroin on 21 August - a move that prosecutors say makes sense even in the midst of
    the government's grueling battle against drug traffickers. Prosecutors said the new
    law sets clear limits that keep Mexico's police from going after casual users and
    offers them more time to concentrate on drug trafficking.

    "This is not legalization, this is regulating the issue and giving citizens greater legal
    certainty," said Bernardo Espino del Castillo of the attorney general's office. The new
    law sets out maximum "personal use" amounts for drugs, also including LSD and
    methamphetamine. People detained with those quantities no longer face criminal
    prosecution. The maximum amount of cannabis for "personal use" under the new law
    is 5 grams.

    Argentina: Supreme Court against prison sentence for possession of cannabis

    The Supreme Court ruled out prison for cannabis possession on 25 August, saying the
    government should go after major traffickers and provide treatment instead of jail for
    consumers of cannabis. Ruling in a case involving several young men caught with
    cannabis cigarettes in their pockets, the judges struck down a law providing for up to
    two years in prison for possession of small amounts of narcotics.

    This decision does not legalize drug possession outright. But Argentina's Cabinet
    chief favours keeping drug addicts out of the justice system, and was waiting for the
    ruling before forwarding a proposed law to Congress. The seven judges said they
    were unanimous in "declaring the unconstitutionality of prison for private
    consumption." "Each individual adult is responsible for making decisions freely about
    their desired lifestyle without state interference," their ruling said. "Private conduct is
    allowed unless it constitutes a real danger or causes damage to property or the rights
    of others."
