If you get rid of traffic laws, careful drivers will be at much at risk
as dangerous drivers. So now, I WILL go into my position on the laws
against drugs: If drugs are legal, the primary victims of drugs would be
the drug-users themselves. If they were not legal, the primary victims
would be non-drug users.
And, by the way, I believe that alcohol is one of the worst drugs
around, and the worst are the semi-legal amphetamines and barbituates.
