I'm wondering as to your opinions on drug prohibition, whatever form it may take in your country or locality.

I think people should be free to consume what ever drug they want to if they dont hurt other people. The USA pretty much lost war on drugs as gangs and cartels keep rising in power. and people being put to jail for non-voilent drug related offences is evil fucked up. Just like those private prisons.

my hometown's gone to shit not because of drugs, but because of drug trafficking. if people could just buy drugs at a pharmacy I truly believe the world would be a better place.

Sadly, as prohibition has taken drug distribution out of the hands of honest folks and put it into the hands of many a time dangerous drug lords (they can't afford not to be. Street law prevails in this business.), places can go to shit because of drug trafficking.

I'm pretty indifferent about the whole thing, although the amount of tax money spent on it does bother me a little.

The crusade against marijuana bothers me the most.
"Each year, enforcing laws on possession costs more than $3.6 billion, according to the American Civil Liberties Union."

We shouldn't be spending that kind of money on a drug much less dangerous than alcohol, especially when the economy could profit off of it!
"A mature marijuana industry could generate up to $28 billion in tax revenues for federal, state, and local governments, including $7 billion in federal revenue: $5.5 billion from business taxes and $1.5 billion from income and payroll taxes."
