Rick's Drug Policy (section page)

Kids with married parents are less likely to use drugs

  • "Children living with their married mother and father, as compared to other children, are less likely to get into trouble or use alcohol and drugs. They do better in school; they get better jobs. No surprise, they also have happier marriages. Teenagers on single-parent households or households with a stepparent are at 1.5 to 2.5 times the risk of using illegal drugs as are teens living with their mother and father." (OTID)

Marijuana should not be legalized

  • "I smoked pot when I was in college. Does that mean that I can't talk about drug use? Does that mean that I can't talk about how that's a bad thing? Of course not. You learn from those experiences. Even during that time, I knew that what I was doing was wrong. But just because I failed, that does not mean that I shouldn't be able to talk about it." (OTID)

States should not have the power to violate federal law

  • "Colorado is violating the federal law. And if we have controlled substances, they're controlled substances for a reason. The federal law is there for a reason, and the states shouldn't have the option to violate federal law. As Abraham Lincoln said, you know, states don't have the right to wrong." (OTID)
