Reasons for Ending Drug Prohibition

The Main Problem With Drugs is not Drugs but the Prohibition of Drugs. Prohibition of every substance has Failed. The government should Legalise every drug not because they condone drugs but because the prohibition of drugs is what causes all the problems. There will always be people seeking to intoxicate themselves if drugs weren't Illegal we wouldnt have half the problems that we have with them today. a controlled drug supply would mean drug dealers off our streets,no need for crime to support the habit, no more deaths by overdose, no drug enforced prostitution, a massive cut in criminal and terrorist funding no more aggressive dealing to impressionable youths, no more deaths and assualt on police officers done by dealers just trying to stay out of jail. It is not like doing this would increase the use of drugs drastically. Certainly not hard drugs, there is no way that an intelligent Person would go out and insert heroin into their veins just becuase it becomes legal. The western view that drugs are the root of all evil is no more valid than the muslims similar view of premarital sex. For instance compare how many people you know who have died from cervical cancer caused by an STD (99.8% HPV caused)is that a reason to Ban premarital sex. I Believe that condoning the execution of a drug dealer by any country including america is the same as condoning the stoning of an arab woman accused of adultery see link Jaun raul garza execution . sometime in the future we will come to the same realisation as John Rockerfeller (The Worlds First Billionaire) when He said these words.
"When Prohibition was introduced, I hoped that it would be widely supported by public opinion and the day would soon come when the evil effects of alcohol would be recognised. I have slowly and reluctantly come to believe that this has not been the result. Instead, drinking has generally increased; the speakeasy has replaced the saloon; a vast army of lawbreakers has appeared; many of our best citizens have openly ignored Prohibition; respect for the law has been greatly lessened; and crime has increased to a level never seen before."
