extracts, the abridged version:

Fact One: 85 percent to 90 percent of people who use even heroin, crack or meth don’t become addicted.

Fact Two: Portugal decriminalized all drugs — and injecting drug use fell by 50 percent.

Fact Three: Switzerland legalized heroin for addicts over a decade ago. Nobody has ever died on an overdose there on legal heroin.

Fact Four: A Harvard Professor calculates the murder rate would fall by at least 25 percent after legalization.

Fact Five: Kids find it much easier to get hold of illegal drugs than legal drugs.

Fact Six: Addiction is not caused primarily by the drug you take; it’s caused by distress.

Fact Seven: When people see drug reform in practice, few want to go back.

The book Chasing the Scream, (where this info came from) should be required reading for every elected official in the country.

I've known of these facts for several years and it just makes so much sense to me, its like so easy to figure this out, why is the rest of the country so fucking dense. Yeah, I know, follow the money...
