Vince Vaughn wants to legalize drugs

Vince VaughnVince Vaughn thinks it is ”insane” that drugs are illegal.

The Delivery Man star insists the world is in a ”f***ing ridiculous” place because of the black market narcotic industry and doesn’t believe everyone who uses illicit substances is ”dangerous.”

He said: ”I look at the drug wars and they are absolutely f***ing ridiculous. There is a black market and the prisons are overcrowded and it’s not preventing drug use. There’s a corruption that goes all the way to the top. [Would I decriminalize drugs?] Yes of course. It’s insane. I’m not saying that drugs can’t be dangerous but not everyone that does drugs is going to go out and hurt somebody.”

The 45-year-old actor believes ”experimenting” with drugs is just a part of growing up.

Speaking about the early days of his career, he told Britain’s GQ magazine: ”I enjoy a few drinks and there was a stage back there where I realized I was going out and drinking until 2 a.m. five nights a week, but you grow out of that stuff. Just like experimenting with drugs, it’s part of growing up, a choice that everyone has to make or not make. You realize what works or what doesn’t work.”

    What about all the kids who think it’s cool and then get hooked and never get off the stuff until they die from an overdose? Ask addicts how good an idea this is. Vince Vaughn must have the IQ of a peanut.

    Actually Stan there have been many studies which indicate that this would not be a bad idea. Treat addiction as a health problem, not a crime. Lots of documentaries as well on You Tube which support the legalization of drugs and ending the ineffective “war on drugs.”

    @Stan Your ignorance is nothing short of amazing. If we decriminalized or god forbid legalized drugs, we could use the money that is currently being spent on wasting space in prisons and on enforcement of petty crimes into educations and reform programs designed to teach everyone from kids to adults the safe, or safer in some cases, way to handle drugs. If you tell someone they cant do something they are just going to do it anyways and it becomes a dangerous minefield of illegal activity. Look at the “mob/mafia” during prohibition of alcohol. You could still get it, you paid an arm and a leg and they usually sent you to jail for having any form of alcohol unless you were a church. Look into your history and the severe negative effects of prohibition on population and its trend towards greater use of the prohibited substance.

    You should educate not incarcerate.

    I have more respect for Vince V. It is not a governments choice what goes in your body regardless of what it supposedly may or may not “make” you act or behave like. Worry about yourself, not what everyone else is doing.
