Legalization of drugs deemed unnecessary is completely useless and intolerable. Drugs including, Narcotics, Opiates, Hallucegens, Cannibis,and Methampthamine.
The following subcategories of drugs have little to NO medical use and opening a market for economic gain on these substances would be self destructive to this nation. As urban areas which are afflicted with these substances would become complete cesspools of economic inactivity and a rolling sea of increased rampant violence.

Legalizing drugs to pacify the addicts, dealers, and plain out left wing political is madness. As a superpower the USA has no need to legalize drugs as it is only a detriment to society as a whole legalization of said substances will dramatically increase addiction, homelessness, domestic violence, organized crumblier, Economic decline, ecological decline, increase of pestilence and disease, moral decay, political corruption, child abuse, Teenage pregnancy, mortality rate, HIV infection, prostitution, gang violence, and dropout rates

Therefore Drug Legalization is a detriment to society.

Decriminalization of drugs is necessary and not useless like you said. It can lead to the control of the use and abuse of drugs. It will reduce the great amounts of money which is spent in enforcement and it will greatly increase a country's revenue.Also, the black market will eventually collapse upon the legalization of drugs.

I totally disagree with that drugs have little to no medical use. Cannabis, for example, has Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol which is a treatment for nausea and anorexia and and likewise, the treatment for Hepatitis, Cancer and AIDS.

Narcotics, in the other hand, can treat cough, pain and acute diarrhea.

And opening a market to economic gain is not self-destruction to a nation. Likewise, it will give a country economic growth due to tax from drugs and this taxing of drugs will also lead to the fact that the users will be safer because
the users will be assured that the drugs they are buying are "clean".

Show your sources on how can the legalization of drugs can lead to dramatically increase addiction, homelessness, domestic violence, organized crumblier, Economic decline, ecological decline, increase of pestilence and disease, moral decay, political corruption, child abuse, Teenage pregnancy, mortality rate, HIV infection, prostitution, gang violence, and dropout rates

Mewtwo guy,

It might be a good idea to delete that link that is on your about me. It's against the rules of this site, (I got bored and read all of the rules, yes) lol.

Just letting ya know, before it's too late.
