all drugs should be legal

First before we start: I am new here and don't have a lot of experience of online debating. So be prepared that I might miss something.

Now back to the topic: Not all drugs should be legal because:

1 It harms people around you when you use it [1]

2 Drugs are incredibly addictive (with heroin being the most dangerous on that field), meaning that people are very likely to over use (or abuse) drugs. [2]

3 A lot of people die from over dosing. [3]

Legalizing all drugs would just increase these numbers and would probably create a society close to china after the first opium war. [4]

I do believe that this is not a real debate (meaning the person that posted this, does not actually believe this), but I will take this free victory I guess.

I do believe that some drugs could be legal, with the right amount of restriction (alcohol for an example). But the claim that all drugs should be legal is just insane.
