I want to make almost all drugs legal, or at the very least not a jailable offense. I was just making a point about how, just because the government SAYS something is good/bad/true/false, that doesn't necessarily make it so. I'm trying to get people thinking.

Then I realized this is Slashdot, and I'm wasting my breath.

A person makes X dollars. He is determined to be "poor" or "not poor" based on Government definitions. Being "poor" or "not poor" affects what you can do, such as getting government stipends to help you out.

A person commits X act. He is determined to be "criminal" or "not criminal" based on Government definitions. Being "criminal" or "not criminal" affects what you can do, such as getting a decent-paying job.

Is this really such a difficult thing to understand?

Trust me, I've been there. Here's a common scenario from my teenaged years:

Me: I'm having seizures.
Doc: No, you're not.

After six years, four doctors, and one car crash, I finally get hooked up to an EEG machine.

Doc: Oh, hey, check this out. You have epilepsy.
Me: I know. I told YOU that.

You are false data.
