LEGALIZATION OF DRUGS America has been plagued with drug problems for years and in recent years it isnt proving to get much better Society has been left to deal with the pain fear terror and crime that the drug world has brought upon us Many believe that Americas problems with drugs crime and the drug trade economy could be easily decreased if America turned to the legalization of illicit drugs If someone chooses to kill themselves with drugs let them In the 1920s alcohol was made illegal by Prohibition The result Organized Crime Criminals jumped at the chance to supply the demand for liquor The streets became battlegrounds The criminals bought off law enforcement and judges Adulterated booze blinded and killed people Civil rights were trampled in the hopeless attempt to keep people from drinking Sound familiar Its very true when people say that history repeats itself Now drugs which are currently illegal have raised the same problems as alcohol did when it was prohibited However it is safe to say that drugs have taken this country by force and that its effects on society are much more harsh than alcohol It is also probably safe to say that prohibition resulted in more people drinking than ever before including many children and many who were poisoned by bad booze When America saw what prohibition was doing to them they supported its repeal When they succeeded most states legalized liquor and criminal gangs were out of the liquor business If that is taken into consideration and placed into our modern world of drugs crime would have a tremendous decrease About 75 of our robberies thefts burglaries and related assaults are committed by drug abusers Numerous studies show that drug users commit far fewer crimes when undergoing outpatient drug therapy or even when the price of drugs drops Now just picture if even half of that 75 of drug related crime was cut
