Legal drug: After Legalizing Recreational Weed, Teen Use In Colorado Lower Than Rest Of Country
Illegal drug: Heroin Use In The United States Reaches A 20 Year High
It's the other way round! Let's do a radical experiment, and legalize drugs, no not the crappy quality dreck that infects the streets like a dysentery infection today. Let's allow recreational use of pharmaceuticals, through over-the-counter sales at pharmacies. Eliminate all tort actions for over-the-counter sales, outside of those based in fraud, like drug alteration, conveyance of the wrong drug, etc.
The positive results will be quick and dramatic decline in violent crime. Destruction of the world's illegal drug cartels, freeing up of police, judiciary, legal, and myriad other personnel from illegal drug focused tasks. Reduction in people stigmatized by criminal convictions. Free up huge amounts of money for voluntary drug treatment, and cessation programs.
Make America Safe Again!
