The issue on crime is split people say the crime would go down because the price of drugs would go down , maybe this is true but it is very unlikely. As people become addicted they need more and more, what happens when the money runs out? People are going to do whatever it takes to obtain their "fix" which includes stealing , robbing , and burglarization possibly even murder, anything to get their drugs. My feeling on this subject is that of total disagreement with the legalization of drugs. People only want the legalization for the profit end of the industry , which is the only appealing side of the drug trade, but it is not appealing enough to sacrifice my children's future for money.
Pro-legalization of Drugs Most Americans regard illegal drugs as one of the nations’ most serious problems, but two generations after the “war on drugs” began, disagreement remains on what should be done. Today’s society is suffering rapid decay due to the never ending war against drugs. Effects of this war like murder, corruption and many other undesirable things are developing and burning through this country’s core while the powers that be debate whether or not drugs should be legalized. Legalization is an option that should be heavily considered. It would be a way to control the import an export of drugs.
Some argue it is the brain which makes addiction like a disease, but they are wrong. Our body is constantly changing and an addiction will affect us way differently than a disease will. Also, the U.S provides rehabs and clinics for drug abusers and basically hand out illegal drugs which leads to more addicts thinking they have a disease. You shouldn’t have to convince yourself you have a disease (Sullum). Although some say addiction
It’s not as easy as just looking at the pros and cons. Our government needs to determine if the prohibition of drugs is actually promoting greater health, safety, and productivity, as well as lowering violence and criminal justice costs. After reading this research paper and seeing the evidence, hopefully you will agree with me that the drug war we are fighting is not promoting greater health, safety, and productivity, nor is it lowering violence and criminal justice costs. Drug Prohibitionists want drugs to be illegal because they believe that it minimizes the damage drug use does to the people who use drugs and to the society around them, however, when drugs are illegal the drugs are actually more potent which hurt the users more. In order to hide drugs easier, the suppliers make the drugs smaller but stronger.

He would have to go the legal way and try to make himself a respectable business person or lose all of his business. The bottom line is, if drugs are legalized it would stop a lot of crime and stimulate the economy. Drugs are bad, but wouldn't it be better to stop the criminal activity than let all of the crime go unchecked. The drug trafficking these days is getting to be ridiculous and something must be done to stop the rage of drug use and crime in our societies today.

On the other hand, some of them might go back to their criminal life. There is no doubt that legalization of drugs would push criminals out of the drug business, but it will not make them leave their criminal life.
The Never Ending War Have you ever wondered how life would be if drugs were to be legalized? Would criminal activity decrease or increase? Many people have thought about this and some even believe that if drugs were to be legalized crime and drug usage would suddenly decrease. I think that the exact opposite would happen if drugs were to be legalized. These people also claim that drugs can help with some diseases.
Nadelmann argues that with the legality of drugs people will abstain from using them or would use them responsibly in moderation. A drug such as cocaine, that Nadelmann is in favor of making legal, is highly addictive and has harmful effects, according to Wilson. Drugs with these kinds of consequences are not easy to use in adequate quantities. The legalization of these drugs will not be used responsibly and will have more members of society exposed to them to try. With deliberate research from Professor David Nutt and his team, they gather enough tests and evidence that evaluates that alcohol is number one on a most harmful list.
People will actually become educated on drugs. It 's surprising how many take drugs without knowing how bad it could harm their bodies. Addicts won 't be as afraid to get help from programs or those close to them. Addiction can really only be treated with the help of someone. Addicts can 't do it themselves, and if they try they often fail and it leads them to death.
Laws that govern drug use are patently arbitrary and have their bases in racial prejudice and the comfort index of old male legislators. The first opium regulatory laws were enacted in San Francisco in response to Asian immigrants entertaining married white women in opium dens (Hamowy). The American and European tolerance for tobacco and alcohol use while fearing "counter-culture" marijuana, cocaine, and heroin is a strong prejudice based on ignorance of the comparative human misery caused by the inevitable misuse of mind-altering substances. Alcohol and tobacco cause more illness and death each year than all the illicit drugs combined. Legislative attempts to curb alcohol and tobacco use by children makes some of these very vulnerable people desire their use, but the age-restrictive and the accompanying time-of-purchase limits on widely abused drugs are the best that society has devised.
