I agree that this drug policy is a failure because I think ANY drug policies are failures. Picking a drug policy depends on what you want to sacrifice. In our drug policy, we sacrifice $$$. In yours, you sacrifice potential drug users and more innocents killed by drug induced mental state and other unforeseen things. Name a situation where a drug policy is a "success". Oh yea, that's right, there aren't any. Drugs weren't ALWAYS illegal, there is a reason why they became illegal in the first place.
I don't really care who uses cocaine. The synthetic nature of the drug renders it complicated to legalize it. You probably personally know people who use cocaine responsibly and it is clouding your judgment. I know people who have used cocaine recreationally and they function perfectly fine. I also know people who use acid and ecstasy responsibly. Does this mean we should legalize them too?
