    The federal budget alone has $15 billion for the anti drug war. current State spending on law enforcement, prisons, judges, cops and so on likely doubles that figure.

    And i sincerely doubt that keeping drugs illegal reduces the number of people with drug problems by 10%.

    Anyone can get it now, but it costs more and triggers crimes, and current drug sales support a massive  organized crime army that has made a large portion of the world practically ungovernable, including but not limited to Mexico and central and south america.

    I quake at the idea of legal heroin, cocaine, and meth, but the alternative is even worse.
