Pro

Economy

We know the economics of prohibition. We know that when a substance is prohibited the economy takes a hit [1]. This will reduce the standard of living for the populous as a whole.

Human Freedom

I would like to know what my opponent thinks gives him the right to regulate what a person does to their own body in the privacy of their own home.

Lowers Drug Addiction

Under almost every example of legalisation drug consumption goes down, this is because in countries where drugs are legalised there is not legal pressure not to come forward as an addict and because of this in countries where drugs are legalised more addicts get treatment [2].

I agree. IF we take away all freebies by the taxpayer to fix the mess they make of their lives by their use of these drugs.If we allow them the freedom to make bad choices, then we should also demand that they or someone who cares pay for their treatment.I never could pamper an adult that makes bad choices.
