I am pro-efficient systems, so I would say that the government should stop people from doing things that increase the burden on the government-funded health care systems. Why should my taxes pay for other people to get quadruple hearty bypasses when they chose to eat at McDonalds every day? Even suicide may deprive the system of valuable tax revenue. I guess people who are retired, or who pay the government for the privilage of suicide, could do it.

because. That's what taxes are. The entire point of taxes is to pay for crap that no one would voluntarilly pay for if it was left to the tragedy of the commons. You have to pay for health care for the poor for the same reason you have to pay for military power and decent roads. Because if you weren't forced to do so, you wouldn't. You'd let the burden fall on someone else.

Also you totally missed the point. I wasn't advocating legalized marijuana. My feelings on marijuna use for recreational purposes are immaterial. I am advocating the usage of marijuana as a medicinaly prescribed schedule II or III medication. Meaning that a doctor could prescribe it, much like any other medication. Its a better pain killer in many cases than morphine (schedule 2) and is much better for several conditions and its a lot cheaper to produce. So it actually leads much more to your theory of pro-efficient systems.

As for your theory about taxes and suicide. That's just stupid. I won't even bother to debate it at this point, unless you can back it up further. And next time leave your name. Or feel free to email me personally and debate it. Saying something controversial and anonymously just comes across as trolling.

The "efficiency" part speaks of Warren, but then there's the problem of anonymity and that last rather lame sentence...
