I don’t know, maybe you’re just trolling, but what’s your definition of “work”? I ask because, it seems to me, even if executing all the drug users managed to stamp out a drug problem, you’d just have an increase in other social problems as a result. People use drugs to escape from reality, and if they are afraid to use drugs because of the executions, they’ll escape from reality through other means. So, you’d just see more alcoholism, more prostitution, gambling, sexual abuse, domestic violence, etc.
Thinking that you can just “win” some war on drugs and declare a victory is looking at things very myopically. It’s like the psychologists who suppress the symptoms of psychological problem with drugs, and then declare the patient cured. If you don’t address the underlying issues that caused the symptoms, then those issues are probably just going to manifest in other ways.
That wouldn’t work anyway. All that would happen is, by increasing the risk, is raise the price of the product to account for the increased risk.
It would just increase the incentive for the cartels to research ways to increase the addictiveness of the crap that’s out there now.
If anybody thinks drugs like crank, crocodile, meth, and crack are the worst it can get, I’ve got news for you...
