Facts. Users ruin their own lives
Depends on the types of dealers, yeah? I'm the US, the illicit dealer typically doesn't want to sell a product that kills their customer base. Like U.S. bootleggers in the '20s, these dealers are just providing am illicit service.
Big Pharma dealers, however, really can be demonized for the most part
Depends on the drug, how they push/advertise, and who they sell to.
They should be demonized for doing something illegal to make a quick buck, preying on the young, the mentally ill, and the desperate. They're really just low-life's.
Should bartenders be demonised? They are legal drug deals selling alcohol? Only difference is the alcohol is regulated and quality and percentages are known and consistent. Illegal drug dealers on the other hand do not care about this.
Car salesmen don't sell you a car hoping you crash. They will advise you on the safety features and how to use them. Drug dealers don't tell people to be careful and only take small amounts. They are not concerned about what the client does. They also know that the drugs are addictive and dangerous. Cars are not like that. Even a better example, alcohol, is sold with warnings. A barman won't serve a drunk customer. A drug dealer will have no problem selling to an addict who is obviously high.
I live in a country where you don't get a warning when you buy alcohol. I've also never been refused service in a supermarket when I've bought alcohol, because I was too drunk.
Drug dealers target minors with obvious problems, get them hooked, and then milk their addiction for years/decades with little regard to the harm they're causing.
Yes I agree predatory practices are bad. But assuming that a dealer doesn't target vulnerable people then would you be against them. Essentially I'm asking about the idea of dealing drugs not the practical way they do it.
I mean i kinda get you point. We don't blame liqour stores and supermarkets for selling booze and tobacco. They're drugs too, just legal drugs.
I think you can sell drugs responsibly. It also depend on what drug you sell. I think here is a huge difference between weed, alcohol etc. and heroin.
HE CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT!!!!
All the objects you listed have primary uses that don't involve destroying your health.
I'm interested in what you think the primary use of an assault rifle is.
You listed firearms, not specifically assault rifles.
In my country they are used for sport or hunting.
What's your definition of an assault rifle?
uh hunting? tf
Assault rifles by design were ment for killing humans. That is their primary function.
I don't really think drug dealers care what people think about them.
"LOL not my fault what people do with the drugs I sell them" is a bad take.
I think a better take is that they simply need to survive, it doesn't justify what they do, but it explains why they aren't evil people, just morally bad ones
Blaming the food industry because people are obese and have diabetes.
Usually the people who sell drugs do drugs themselves and that's why they have to sell, especially drug dealers on street level. Drugs is bigger than them and would exist either way
Drugs, if used as intended by the drug dealer (in excess, everyday) will often destroy the users life. Other things don't do that when used as intended.
I'm curious what you think happens when you use an assault rifle as intended.
Drugs are a lot easier for random people to get than assault rifles.
I think most people, even pro-gun people like myself would agree that black market gun salesmen are bad.
I think assault rifles should not be legal to own so yah.
But I suppose they are "intended" to use for entertainment and sport. And that is probably how they are mostly used
Assault rifles by design are intended to kill people. It's the reason why the designs were created.
But do you hate firearms vendors, as people.
You kill a deer, then you eat it. Lol just because a gun could kill you doesn't mean you get to tell everyone that you feel unsafe and they should just get taken away
Sure but how bad a shot does somebody have to be to need an assault rifle for a deer
Like rights and legalities aside that's just silly
Of course it's silly lol but you live in a very silly country. Our people are silly, our laws are silly, most of the legal things you could do here you couldn't do anywhere else without punishment. So my question to your question. What do you expect?
I don't live in the US, but by design these guns are made to kill humans. That is their primary function.
It's not for hunting. It is for self/home defense hence why it's primary function is to kill people
"Ilegal drugs" I might add. Because ibuprofen is a drug also and if used as intended, wont destroy your life.
No just anemia due to bleeding stomach ulcers, impaired hearing, kidney and liver damage etc..
Drugs is more than your local kid selling them to you.
They can be produced in Mexico, shipped using containers from innocent companies, taken out of the containers by kids, then sold to you.
You support the Mexican cartels, you support the threatening and blackmailing of random innocent companies, you support kids getting them out of the containers because people wait at their school telling them to make some money, and you support all the murder and awful torture that happens in that process
If you support the gun industry, you are supporting lobbying for politicians that want to generate wars to continue selling arms.
If you support electric cars, you are supporting the exploitation of kids in third world countries mining for what's inside those batteries.
If you super the fast food industry, you are supporting the whole medical and insurance mess where people are bond for life to diabetes and obesity.
We, as humans, are full of contradictions.
If people eat fast food and become obese, that's their choice, it affects them
That proves my point. "That's their choice, it affects them". We, as a society, always contradict ourselves.
Drug dealers sell drugs to addicts and kids. That's their chose, it affects them, not me.
I don't buy drugs. But if I did then yep,the same way I support sweatshops buy buying most items.
Of course I'm opposed to them in principle. This seems like more a criticism of drug users.
Drug dealers prey on addiction.
Aren't fast food restaurants also prey on the same? Adiction to sugar or over-process foods?
Not quite the same. I've never heard of someone ODing on Big Macs
Obesity, strokes, high blood pressure, etc. Would count? They developed over time, but that doesn't mean that they are not cause by it.
There's a strong genetic component to those
genetic obesity is a fantasy fed to you by McDs
have you met the USA
Scale is a factor here. Sun exposure and working out is also mildly addictive. All because something is the same when you ignore any reference to scale doesn't make it in the same realm at all.
EXACTLY the same but worse because everyone pretends it's chill
