"Natural selection"? Do you even know what that means?

Drugs are not deus ex machina. One does not walk through the jungle and get attacked by a poppy. It takes a conscious decision to pack that pipe and inhale. That's not natural selection; nature has nothing to do with it (other than human nature, I suppose).

So your next argument will be: "These people are born stupid and so they deserve to die, and this is natural selection." Except you'll have spelling mistakes and grammar errors.

The inherent flaw in your theory is that you don't have to be stupid to do drugs. You simply have to exist, and that's an entirely more sinister ball of wax. I've never known a drug-dealer to issue IQ tests as a prerequisite for doing business.

If you don't mind a bit of homework, go online and google "famous and brilliant people who were/are drug-addicts". view post
