Robert asks…

Is it illegal to download movies I own and paid for?

The Expert answers:

Yes it is illegal. Your DVD purchase is for a license to view the movie and other contents on the DVD from the DVD only. It does not allow you to download the material from the Internet.

If I buy a movie ticket at the theater to see a movie, should I then be allowed to download it at home to watch? No. The same goes for movies and music on DVD and CD’s.

What are some Pros and Cons of Legalizing Drugs?

The Expert answers:

First, you might need a history lesson. Drug use is almost as old as man: cave paintings in New Mexico and Arizona depict peyote trips. Drugs, including heroin, morphine, and cocaine were 100% legal until about 1906 when the FDA was enacted. The exception was cannabis, which has a whole other story far too long for a reasonable answer. Research the history of the FDA and the DEA for more information.

But on to your questions. The legalization of all drugs would free up prison space, and reduce violent crime within the United States. Not only that, but terrorist organizations such as the Taliban and FARC rely heavily on money from the drug trade; legalization would effectively decimate these groups. Money made off taxation of “soft drugs” (cannabis, mushrooms, ect.) would be used to rehabilitate users addicited to hard drugs such cocaine, crystal meth, ect.

Outright legalization is not without its problems. Heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine have no medicinal use, are extremely addictive, and have a high risk of overdose. These drugs, cocaine in particular, can kill even a first time user. Legalization does not fix the problem of addiction itself; even rehabilitation has it limits. It would be unethical and irresponsible to make the drugs available to the public. Ask any addict: addiction is a disease, and it is a DAILY uphill battle to not succumb, even after years of sobriety.

The human body, despite technological advances and generations of research, is largely a mystery; especially the human brain. What is known that it only takes one session for the brain to adjust to the drugs that are introduced. Over several sessions, the brain and body develops a tolerance to any substance, requiring more and more to achieve the same effect. Hence, the nature of addiction. If one were to simply using, that person would suffer from intense withdrawals both physically and mentally. It is interesting to note that alcohol is the only substance known to kill addicts who try to quit cold turkey.

A few nations, and some states here have tried decriminalization or legalization of soft drugs; but no modern nation has ever tried outright legalization. The Netherlands is well known for its soft drugs policy but ignores a few issues. Possession is legal, but cultivation is not.

California, Oregon and Alaska has decriminalized it, meaning that people found in possession are issued a citation and released. Washington, Vermont, Colorado, and others have legalized cannibas for people suffering from certain conditions. However, nurseries and medical cannabis paitients have been the subject of federal raids since the initiatives were passed.

Believe or not this is simply the tip of the iceberg for this issue. Research the Dept of Justice, ONDCP, FDA, NORML, MPP, Erowids and the history of drug culture including ancient use, counter-cultures, and modern trends. Personally, I believe this is something that everyone should know because we all consume some sort of substance, and know people that have fallen to addiction. Good luck on your project.

Steven asks…

When border agents have 36 or more environmental regulations hinder them to build and equip what is required?

The Expert answers:

I can understand the need for lifting the environmental restrictions for the Border Patrol and why it may be necessary in order to make their job easier. But, two thoughts here. I cannot find any information where the Department of Homeland Security has asked for the change in regulations and once again, its become apparent that the country’s already existing border protection policies and immigration laws are either being ignored or not being enforced given the serious problems the US continues to experience with illegals and drug cartels.

John asks…

How to avoid import duty and vat?

The Expert answers:

If it cost less than £120 there will be nothing to pay. If more then you should declare it as it will still be cheaper than buying in UK. If you do not declare it and it is found then they could confiscate it and you will have nothing for your efforts.
