You're assuming that decriminalisation of drugs possession would somehow increase the supply of drugs on the street.
What we need is proper deterrants to the dealers.
E.g using the law we already have. People dealing class B drugs can get 14 years, those dealing class A can get life. Has anyone in the UK EVER been given the maximum sentence?
Also, consecutive sentencing could be used. I'd imagine most drug dealers commit their crime hundreds of times before being caught. A 1400 year sentence would undoubtedly hamper their attempts to keep dealing.
Couldn't agree more, however the cutbacks in funding for the prison service, the human rights lawyers and leftie doo-gooders are hindering the sentences handed down to these criminal low life.

well it depends what you mean by drug dealers. most of the time the law arrests street dealers - many of whom are addicts themselves. life imprisonment for these, i reckon is unduly harsh, what they need is treatment. if you're going to increase the severity of sentencing then more needs to be done in targeting the source - the big, often untouchable, 'business men'

By 'drug dealers', I usually mean people who sell drugs, regardless of where they are in the chain of supply.

I agree that the supposedly 'untouchable' businessmen at the top of the supply chain should be treated the most harshly, but I'm not in favour of leniency on those further down.

Having lived next to, or very close to drug houses in my time I think all drug abusers should be put on an island somewhere and airdropped their drugs. It would save a lot of heartbreak to those good, hard working families that suffer burglary or ASB etc.
