Kneejerk Objection No. 1 (To the Legalization of Drugs):
"But I'm afraid that would mean drugs would be readily available everywhere and to everyone all over the place!"
 
Answer to No. 1: 
That's what we have right now, you myopic bonehead!!! And it's all BECAUSE of your stupid war on drugs which forces prices more than high enough (180 times cost in most cases!) to pay for the multiple layers of sales forces which seep into every nook and cranny (and sheriff's department, and mayor's office, and intelligence agency, and playground and gradeschool, etc., etc. etc.) of society imaginable (AND causes the early release from overcrowded prisons of murderers, rapists, muggers and other violent real criminals with the mandatory-sentencing laws the drug warriors have perpetrated). The ONLY success the drug warriors have ever had (and probably ever MEANT to have) is to give the police and politicians almost unlimited search-and-seizure privileges against EVERY private citizen, thank you very much for being so damned short-sighted.

"I think that prohibition of drugs is the most immoral program that the United States has ever engaged in. It's destroyed civil rights at home and it is responsible for thousands of deaths abroad." -- Nobel Laureate Dr. Milton Friedman 

"Every friend of freedom... must be as revolted as I am by the prospect of turning the United States into an armed camp, by the vision of jails filled with casual drug users and of an army of enforcers empowered to invade the liberty of citizens on slight evidence." -- Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize-winning free market economist, Wall Street Journal, Sept. 7, 1989.
 

"Instead of giving money to found colleges to promote learning, 
why don't they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting 
anybody from learning anything?  If it works as good as the 
Prohibition one did, why, in five years we would have the 
smartest race of people on earth!" --  Will Rogers

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance.  It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond  the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's  appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are  not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very  principles upon which our government was founded." -- Abraham Lincoln (1809-65), Dec. 18, 1840 
 

"Prohibition is an awful flop.  We like it.
It can't stop what it's meant to stop.  We like it.
It's left a trail of graft and slime,  It don't prohibit worth a dime,
It's filled our land with vice and crime.
Nevertheless, we're for it." --  Franklin P. Adams, 1931

"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the  land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open  secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is  closely connected with this." -- Albert Einstein, "My First Impression of the U.S.A.", 1921

"I see that you, too, put up monuments to 
your great dead."-- a Frenchman on viewing 
the Statue of Liberty during Prohibition 

"There are no violent gangs fighting over aspirin territories. There are no violent gangs fighting over whisky territories or computer territories or anything else that's legal. There are only criminal gangs fighting over territories covering drugs, gambling, prostitution, and other victimless crimes. Making a non-violent activity a crime creates a black market, which attracts criminals and gangs, which turns what was once a relatively harmless activity affecting a small group of people into a widespread epidemic of drug use and gang warfare." Harry Browne
