In the United States today, if an individual who has the incentive to recreationally use drugs, the fact that it’s illegal inst going to stop them from getting it. If all drugs were to be made legal, not everyone would be able to purchase them, just like alcohol and tobacco. A certain age regulation would be set.

John Knox Anastacio, McCord 11-19-10 Humanities 1-2 The Everlasting Drug War Throughout history the poppy flower has been considered to be a gift from God. Once the 19th century arrived, scientists discovered Morphine and Heroin. Morphine and Heroin were scientific miracles at the time, but later became a curse on America.

Reducing Drug Trafficking in the United States Juanita Grice ENG 122 Shelley Lawyer 05/16/2011 Reducing Drug Trafficking in the United States The illegal import of drugs into the United States is a multi-billion dollar a year industry, all of the profit going to criminals, killers and dangerous organizations. If marijuana were legalized and regulated, the marijuana black market would be entirely eliminated and the immense expenditure on both the war on drugs and the sale of drugs could be turned to far more practical applications.
