I have said for several years now that the war on drugs should be stopped. Legalize them, and let the government sell them, the taxes it would raise would have us out of debt in a couple of years. This "war" is so similar to the days of "prohibition". The criminals made a fortune off illegal booze. Once it was legalized, a lot of the murders etc. fell off. The money made if it was legal could set up a lot of places to help people who wanted to get off drugs, and perhaps perform routine health checks for communicable diseases that need treatment.
We are not going to stop people from taking drugs if they want to. And even if you put the entire population in prison for it, the staff would smuggle drugs in for the money to be made.
This is a fight that we can't win.
