Burglary by definition always harms others. Drugs usually harm the user, except when the user commits crime to afford his drugs. Laws still need to be in place to guard against users harming others, but if the user wants to destroy themselves, its better than them robbing or killing me to be able to afford their illegal drugs.
Legalization, while enabling regulation of sales, would crash the high profits of drug dealing. Think of all the smugglers, dealers, and gangs that would defunded.

“except when the user commits crime to afford his drugs”
Yes, and the thing about those crimes is that they are crimes. They will still be crimes when drugs are legal.
