Actually, I don't think drugs should be legalized but should be distributed at cost by the various local Boards of Health to those certified as drug addicted. My sole interest is in eliminating the profit in addictive drugs. I couldn't care less about the drug addicts as I'm convinced they're beyond help.
The only people who seem to oppose my solution, interestingly, seem to be Christians who think it isn't Christian to not try to help the drug addicts. They never seem to care about those who, by continuing the current policy, are going to be induced into the drug culture and wind up in prison, prostitution and drug induced misery.

So now we are subsidizing drug users? Well then, I'm addicted and I want my cocaine!
Seriously, we already have plenty of drug users in our country. Legalizing drugs is not going to change that by a large factor. Even with millions of drug users in the U.S, we still have the healthiest economy in the world.
Let's not forget the unspoken amounts of money that the drug trade supplies to drug dependent countries and keeps democracy from taking power there.
