I oppose H.R. 315: Synthetic Cathinones Control Act of 2013 because... people should have the freedom to ingest whatever substance they want... they are responsible for their actions even under the influence of drugs and should not be treated differently than anybody else who did the same wrong, just because they were on drugs.... ALL criminal enhancements are ridiculous

I oppose H.R. 315 ("To provide for the placement of certain synthetic drugs on Schedule I under the Controlled") because...the war on drugs is not winnable as long as you go after the drugs. The reason people get into drugs is that they need to escape their lives, usually poverty, lack of hope, and/or victimization in crimes. Work on those problems instead of attacking the symptoms.
