I have a hard time with this issue. Part of me thinks that prohibition does not work well, and it's alot of money spent futilely. Another part of me remembers what I was like before I learned to, as Nancy Reagan put it, "just say no to drugs", and how subtly assiduous the problems where, and think that even if the money spent is inefficient to the job, it's better than giving up.
I think overall, that at the current time, I just see no overwhelming reason to significantly change our drug policy.
I would like to go more into detail with this one. It is argued that the widespread use of cocaine of the 1970s directly correlated with the clampdown on pharmaceutical stimulants used in the 1960s, the clampdown on cocaine imported in the 1980s resulted in the production of crack, the resulting clampdown on crack in the same era, resulted in the meth production of the 1990s that we see today.Originally Posted by Thoreau

What about the unintended consequences that can be attributed to the Drug War inflating the price of drugs? Such as violence in Mexico (over 5,000 cartel related murders a year), at least 90% of all gang activity, the funding of terror groups and regimes, and other social costs that permeate our country?
I see no reason not to make them all legal.
