The problem is drugs will always be around no matter what so why not let adults make their own decisions and just legalize all illegal narcotics and let the government tax them all so the tax payers will benefit from it instead of locking all kinds of nonviolent drug offenders( dealers and users) and it costing the tax payers more money to house these folks?Colorado and Washington are showing us now how it really should be done!!!

I concur
Contrary to what some believe, just because something is legal isn't going to make people try it. A few will, of course, but in general those who don't want to still won't because if they did, chances are they will have done so anyway
