    Legalize every drug that is currently illegal and tax the (*)(*)(*)(*) out of it. The harder or worst the drug the higher the tax on it.

    best way to win the war on illegal drugs is to make them all legal eliminateing the criminal element almost entirely.

    "Illegal" drugs are merely an arbitrary list compiled decades ago based in many cases on lousy science, ignorant social attitudes and the completely mistaken belief that prohibition will work on substances that are in such high demand.
