  • Legalization Of Drugs The Drug Connection
    1,324 words
    Legalization of Drugs The drug connection is one that continues to resist analysis, both because cause and effect are so difficult to distinguish and because the role of the drug-prohibition laws in causing and labeling 'drug-related crime' is so often ignored. There are four possible connections between drugs and crime, at least three of which would be much diminished if the drug-prohibition laws were repealed. 'First, producing, selling, buying, and consuming strictly controlled and banned sub...

  • Hard Drugs
    308 words
    Believe If the state and federal government legalized hard drugs it would save a lot of money spend on the war on drugs. The government would tax it, like they do alcohol and tobacco. The money they would save could be put into creating better rehab programs. I feel that those addicted would then have no reason to avoid treatment. We could offer real help to addicts rather than prison. If hard drugs were legal they would be controlled and pure, and have to pass FDA standards. Selling drugs is a ...
  • Legalization Of Drugs

Legalized drugs would become cheaper and more appealing to people who previously had not tried drugs.
