There can be no doubt that the war against drugs was lost long ago. That point came when the risk to society of making drugs illegal was outweighed by the benefits society would gain by making them legal. Certainly, the risk to society of making drugs illegal in terms of violence, supporting organized crime, costing billions to imprison users and dealers, making criminals out of many ordinary Americans, who did nothing but attempt to enjoy the freedom of using the substance of their choice in situations that presented no risk of harm to others, and the cost of lost productivity from Americans, who cannot find jobs they’re very capable of doing because of a drug conviction is far outweighed by the benefits of legalization, i.e., the tax revenue to be gained by taxing the sales of drugs, the billions saved in freeing up most prison space that could then be used to imprison criminals who commit crimes against the person and/or property of others (these crimes cost Americans a huge sum of money and more with the loss of life, etc.), the production that could be gained from Americans, who lose control of their ability to use drugs reasonably, through rehabilitation and treatment, and regaining the freedom we’ve always claimed to have but hypocritically take away (the legalization of alcohol and tobacco being a good example of this hypocrisy). For me, that should be the end of the discussion based on good, common sense. The conclusion – legalize all drugs.
