The US is spending more than $100 billion annually on programs to eliminate “entertainment” drug use. The program is not working. I urge you to take the time to read through this article on why the US should legalize these drugs.
We hear that illicit drugs are bad. So we support efforts to limit their production and use. What we don’t hear is that these efforts are not working and they impose severe social and economic costs both in the US and abroad. This article sets forth these costs and concludes illicit drugs should be legalized.
