    No more profits means no more crime on the dealers' end, but also no more crime on the buyers' end, since prices will drop so greatly that they'll no longer need big money fast in order to get their next hit.

    You'll also destroy drugs' image. Who are you rebelling against by consuming something as legal as Children's Tylenol? Who are you trying to impress by consuming something as ordinary as crap beer?

    Tax drugs to fund mandatory rehab for people who've lost the ability to function and voluntary rehab for people who want to quit, but otherwise let people buy whatever they want and however much of it they want. Regulate to provide consistent quality to eliminate accidental overdoses. Regulate meth labs and their waste products the way you would (or should) regulate any other hazardous manufacturing process.

    We'd save billions on a failed drug war and do far more to take the fun and sexiness out of drugs than a bunch of finger-wagging Boomers and transparently phony teen shills backed up by big men with guns.
