Re: Drugs should be legalised, regulated, and taxed- BAD IDEA
Legalizing dangerous drugs is a bad idea. All it accomplishes is making drug use more prevalent. Look at the numbers. Legal drugs such as alcohol and tobacco cause more deaths than heroin; not because they are inherently more deadly, but because they are legal and more prevalent.
Legalizing addictive drugs is bad for public health. See preventdontpromote.org for an international organization dedicated to a rational approach to address the public health issue of drug addiction.
