The war on drugs has failed. It has been shown over decades that prohibiting drugs has simply led to a thriving illicit drug trade and resulting violence. Incarcerating drug users does not help them to recover as prison does not give drug users the resources needed to come clean. Drugs should be legalized, controlled, regulated, and taxed. If an adult person decides to partake of drugs, they should be made aware of the risk, but also should be allowed to use drugs even if it is to their detriment. For those wishing to get clean of drugs, medically based programs should be used for drug recovery.
