Well I am going to assume you mean recreational drugs not medical one.

Recreational drugs should be legalized for countless reasons. These reasons are as follow:

1. Taxing of drugs produce mass amounts of money that can be used to benefit the government and its citizens. Evidence for this can be seen in Colorado and many of the other states/countries that have legalized drugs.

2. Even if drugs kill people, it would be unfair and unjust to ban them. People have the right to do whatever they want. Banning them because they are dangerous is like banning scissors because people can get cut. We need a government not a nanny.

3. Many drugs are not even that harmful. Tobacco is legal yet it is extremely harmful when compared to marijuana.

4. Drugs have many medical and beneficial effects. Marijuana has proven to have medical benefits countless times.

5. Drugs can be used for other purposes. Hemp is incredibly useful and it has no downside.

Well considering my opponent presented no new argument, Neither will I. Drugs have a multitude of uses(as listed in previous argument) and should be legalized.
