Whether or not any of these 'at present illegal' substances are dangerous or addictive is not in contention. Some clearly are and others, such as marijuana, are clearly not. At present we have a bigger 'prohibition problem' than we do a 'drug problem' This is actually a re-run of the 1920s and early 1930s --Alcohol was rightly perceived to be addictive and dangerous, so they banned it. The result was so catastrophic that the same people who were behind it's prohibition soon took to the streets to get it legalized/regulated again.

 

No amount of money, police powers, weaponry, wishful thinking or pseudo-science will make our streets safer, only an end to prohibition can do that. How much longer are you willing to foolishly risk your own survival by continuing to ignore the obvious, historically confirmed solution?

 

If you support prohibition then you've helped trigger the worst crime wave in history.

 

If you support prohibition you've a helped create a black market with massive incentives to hook both adults and children alike.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped to make these dangerous substances available in schools and prisons.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped raise gang warfare to a level not seen since the days of alcohol bootlegging.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped create the prison-for-profit synergy with drug lords.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped remove many important civil liberties from those citizens you falsely claim to represent.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped put previously unknown and contaminated drugs on the streets.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped to escalate Theft, Muggings and Burglaries.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped to divert scarce law-enforcement resources away from protecting your fellow citizens from the ever escalating violence against their person or property.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped overcrowd the courts and prisons thus making it increasingly impossible to curtail the people who are hurting and terrorizing others.

 

If you support prohibition you've helped evolve local gangs into transnational enterprises with intricate power structures that reach into every corner of society, controlling vast swaths of territory with significant social and military resources at their disposal.
