Legalize Drugs we are unproductive anyway by design
In 2006 around the third quarter the unemployment rate was about 4% now it is about 10% nationwide. That is one in ten Americans looking for work cannot find one. When you calculate people who just gave up on looking the numbers are even higher like 14%. Then 1 in 100 Americans are in prison, that 1% of the population in total. As America is 2.5% of the world population and 25% of the prison population. The average age is about 30 years old for the prison population. Whereby 250 Americans are over 18 years old and about 35 million are over 65 years old. Another 35 million Americans suffer severe disability, so when we say 14% of Americans are unemployed, it’s more like 50% are out of work between age 18 and 65. We have a population of over 310,000,000. The idea that drugs legalized will make of a lazy unproductive nation is folly. Because we are already a nation in cages be it physical of mental.
