Should Drugs Be Legalized My View It seems as if the cry of legalize drugs is heard everywhere Some argue that legalizing drugs is the way to win the drug war Drug enforcement does place a burden on us Economic resources are used up that could be used elsewhere But the consequences of legalizing drugs would make an already large problem out of control If one examines the arguments behind drug legalization it becomes apparent that legalizing drugs wont solve any of our Nations drug problems The main argument is individuals have the right to do as they choose provided it doesnt harm anyone else They choose to put the drugs inside their body and have the right to make this choice I understand this argument Our government does limits individuals rights with laws But this argument has flaws The notion that drugs only hurt the people who use them is illogical One needs to look beyond oneself and look at the entire picture Its obvious that drugs have effects on MANY people It is estimated that 100000 babies a year are born addicted to cocaine These babies didnt choose to take drugs In Conclusion the drug war is difficult and can seem hopeless but we shouldnt just give up As William Bennet a fighter in the drug war states Imagine if in the darkest days of 1940 Winston Churchill had rallied the West by saying This war looks hopeless and besides it costs too much Hitler cant be THAT bad Lets surrender and see what happens This is what those who want to legalize drugs suggest With all the other problems we face it seems absurd to legalize something that could in turn destroy us
