    “…the cost of the drug war is many times more painful, in all its manifestations, than would be the licensing of drugs combined with intensive education of non-users and intensive education designed to warn those who experiment with drugs. ”

      Yes Michael, lets have counties full of meth addicts stealing everything they can get their hands on to feed their habit

        The war on drugs has been counterproductive and has failed. The threats of extensive prison time prevent the addicts from asking for the help they need. Incarceration also costs much much more than treatment and therapy do.

        I’m for legalizing marijuana, proven to be less harmful than alcohol, and for the decriminalization of ALL drugs. Before anyone suggests that drugs would then be everywhere and the streets flooded with addicts, I suggest reading up on how Portugal handled its drug problem. It’s almost completely opposite of ours, and it’s working a heckuva lot better. The fears aren’t true.

        @Randy- I have an idea…let’s make it illegal so they won’t do it and if they do lets burden the rest of society with over crowded prisons and once they get out they are felons & can’t get jobs that pay a decent wage and create a compounding problem with ripple waves throughout the rest of society.
