    Legalize the natural ones (marijuana, salvia, psilocybin mushrooms.) first and evaluate the system again. I seriously doubt anyone would find a reason (other than morals or religion) against these drugs. Let police focus on the hard drugs like cocaine and meth during this time. Give the prison system some breathing room with fewer marijuana arrests to process. Once the evaluation period arrives do a detailed and bipartisan study and see where we stand. Marijuana would be a wonderful crop for American farmers and many products can be made from it, starting our own American based chain of business. Prohibition of drugs has been the only plan we have tried, and it has failed. If we want different results then lets have some different action. Legalize the natural drugs today!

    I can only speak of the prescription Pain Med. problem. With all the new laws against prescribing them WE, the Legit Pain sufferers are finding it impossible to find a DR. that isn't afraid to prescribe them because they want to keep their license. In short, the DR's are being forced to forsake the OATH they take to treat their patients Pain by the New Gov. Laws, Mainly State Laws by denying relief from Pain. WE are being Under treated for Pain by the wish to obtain VOTES by our Politicians. This HAS to be addressed, i'm 53, Disabled, Broke back & Neck & now Severally Depressed & in Pain Everyday, it is a Shame to wake up each day & wish it away & wish there were no more tomorrows to have to deal with Pain when there is medication that would give me Some Quality of Life.

    Less violent crime is what's really important. Nobody should have to be a victim of crime just so others can avoid addiction, since being a victim of crime is not a choice but taking drugs and risking an addiction is.

    People are going to do what they are going to do. To use resources on jails, police,courts and the various other non-positive endeavours of government, does not make sense to me. Legalized it and give it away!!!!!! Mexico will be a much better place too!!

    The war on drugs is as pointless as the war on terror. All it has done is allow police forces across the country to become more militarized, while benefiting weapons manufacturers to the tune of billions of dollars. Legalize natural substances and let people take personal responsibility for their choices.
