Despite the fact that the mentally inferior abuse alcohol like any other addictive or mind altering drug (which BTW, alcohol is no different,) and causes more harm and will continue to cause more harm each year than any terrorism act could in the US (barring the nearly impossible nuclear bomb,) repealing the 18th amendment was one of the smarter things the US congress has ever done. They should follow suit with making all other addictive or mind altering substances legal. It will dramatically decrease crime across the US. This will also weed out the stupid, with less innocent lives taken in the form of theft vs vehicular accident.

You think if people were allowed to legally get messed up on any mild altering substance they wanted there would be less innocent lives lost in vehicular accidents?

I'm wondering if maybe I mis-interpreted what Anton meant by 'theft vs vehicular accident'?
