Often those who urge legalization of drugs are dismissed and fringe thinkers with loony notions. This week the editors of the prestigious Economist news magazine feature the opinion that the world should make mind altering drugs legal. They reason simply that the 100 years of attempting to enforce drug bans have failed. The unintended consequences of enforcement are many and costly. Our jails are full, and much of our urban crime is drug related. Addicts steal to feed the habit. Rival gangs kill to defend or usurp turf.

Drugs are easily available to those who want them notwithstanding all efforts to control the traffic. Whether your are for or against legalizing illicit drugs, you should ponder the case that you’ll find on this link: Legalize Drugs?  Then also read OpEdNews writers on the topic: Jane Stillwater, Carlos T Mock, BajaWind.
