And a "well said" for you too...I am routinely startled and the dichotomy in viewpoint to drugs depending on their legality. Most of america seems to think the following:

Illegal drug - use is immoral just because it is illegal

Legal but restricted drug (prescription) - not normal to use long term

Legal, unrestricted or slightly restricted drug (nicotine, alcohol) - no problem, use at will

It seems that there is some seriously faulty reasoning going on here.
