And even though I would like to see a more decent society - I do not believe you can legislate such things and I object very much when some political factions try to do just that.

I do not think morality can be legislated. Laws are put in place to make for a more stable society. I think passing laws that a majority does not support does little to prevent the activity and only causes people to form a habit of breaking the law. Alcohol prohibition was one example of that. I think the current drug laws needs to be revisited, especailly marijuana prohibition.
