    But that is what happens everyday. I **do believe** people should be 
allowed to do drugs, and they should be free, given by the government. It is 
up to you to die crazy, or keep a healthy life. Of course, anyone caught 
doing nasty things drugged should be killed :) BUT...The government takes 
care of you as if you were a child and it were your mother.

    Ah, I don't do drugs. Don't like drugs. But I do believe in the right of 
each person kill yourself in the way he/she wants :)
