Drug Laws Planet Earth - Today we Look at Argentina

Should adults be able to decide for themselves whether or not to consume any substance they want?

Or should Big Brother punish adults who use substances not sanctioned by the state?
(At tax payer's expense of course.)


 

Well here is how they view personal freedoms of adults in Argentina:

In August 2009, the Argentine supreme court declared in a landmark ruling that it was unconstitutional to prosecute citizens for having drugs for their personal use -

"adults should be free to make lifestyle decisions without the intervention of the state"

Personally I think that Argentina's attitude toward adult drug use is very sane as opposed to that of the United States, which  is liken to that of a stark raving lunatic in a straightjacket.

Argentina sounds like a great place. Are you ready to move, texlahoma? I would be a great roommate. =)

The place is looking more attractive all the time...

What language(s) would we need to learn?

Mr. Shife - I'm not quite ready yet, waiting for the price of aluminum to skyrocket, then I can cash in my cans.
That should be enough to buy a small mansion and some land. (Not that things are cheap down there, I just have a lot of cans.)

I'll send you a copy of the 80 page Roommate Agreement.

I guess I should give you fair warning, Bob and I snore. I know you'd have your own room, but I mean we SNORE!

Bob - Spanish for sure and rumor has it that a little German might come in handy.

I guess Argentina doesn't have contracts with private prisons guaranteeing full occupancy.

Rio de Janero will let anyone in.

texlahoma said...

Billy - Good point. I don't think private prisons should even be allowed. If we stay on the same path, someday there might be a company like:
Ted's Torture Service
"We'll get something out of them, even if it's a complete fabrication."

texlahoma said...

Galt - I'm pretty sure they would reconsider that policy if I ever went there.
