Step 1) Legalise all drugs (to varying degrees, i.e. no intoxication is permitted within the work place etc), letting the people decide whether or not they are dangerous, and using them as they choose.
Step 2) Heavily tax the sale of cannabis, cocaine etc., much as is done with tobacco and alcohol to gain a profit from said drugs.
Step 3) Divert a portion of the money that is regained from the defunct war on drugs and the subsequent narcotic taxation towards support programs to help with sobriety, so that those who change their minds about abusing substances have help in getting off the hook.
Step 4) Social Darwinism ensues: Those too weak willed or unwilling to leave hazardous substances alone for their own health will die off, leaving the strong willed and healthy members of society to remain.
Step 5) Reap the rewards of your economically booming master race.

wouldn't it be far more productive to decriminalize all drugs and put that 1.5 trillion to harm reduction and education instead of incarcerating millions of Americans for non violent drug offences?

I like how there are absolutely no souces provided.

No one would lie on the internet, so I guess it's fine.

maybe the lines would have been the other way round if spending was kept flat?
User avatar #22 to #10 - mortulance (06/26/2013) [-]
we will never know...

though I doubt it, the Dutch have been able to keep drugs legalized (the government actually makes money out of it) and we don't have the whole country smoking weed.
The stuff just ain't interesting if you could just buy it anytime.

The increased spending on drug control is why drug addiction rate has remained a little over 1% throughout the years. The chart is completely accurate.

idiots. the addiction rate is in %, which means the total addiction grew (americas population grew...)    
or course, also the money spent for control has to be accordingly adjusted

So I went a head and did a brief bit of research and this is what I found.

USA population between the years 1981 and 2002: 229.5M - 287.6M which is about 25%.
USA drug control spending the same period: $1.5B - $18B which adjusted for inflation is 600%.

Something that this graph doesn't show is the increase in population. While the percentage stays roughly the same, the number of people within that percentage is increasing.   
Another thing this graph doesn't show is due to the increased population, there is a increased demand. The manufacture and shipping of drugs as exponentially grown to feed this ever riding demand. Therefor more money is needed to spent to battle this.    
As a recovering drug addict myself, I can say from experience that drugs are becoming steadily more available, not just for adults but to children in schools as well.   
So what if money is spent on drug enforcement, I myself don't like seeing a percentage of any population addicted to drugs. I am glad something is being done about it.
