Big difference between a killer and someone dealing drugs that doesn't commit any violent acts.
One is taking life, the other is providing a service to people that will seek that service elsewhere regardless of the provider.
As long as the OP, or any dealer for that matter, hasn't committed any violent acts then I see no problem with dealing drugs.
It's when the violence over turf, customers, or product starts is when drugs become a real issue.
Yes there will be overdoses. However, people will continually drink themselves to death and smoke til lung cancer takes their life, or even eat themselves into a diabetic state. All that is ok by our societies standards, however, smoking weed or doing coke isn't. Prescription pills are ok as long as a doctor, any doctor, says it's cool even if he has a financial incentive to issue them. Weed isn't though.
As long as there is no violence involved in the dealing then I see no problem with it. Even with drugs as bad as heroin and meth. Do you really think continually fighting to put dealers behind bars is going to prevent people from using drugs? It hasn't yet and never will.
Want to end most of the violence in this industry? Legalize the products. It's the exact same as prohibition. Outlaw an industry that has ample demand and someone will be there to supply that demand.....by any means necessary as long as it pays enough.
But equating a killer to a non violent drug dealer is a tad bit extreme imo.
