    Anyway, drug dependency and addiction are surely matters of the health profession, not legal.

    I would prefer to legalize drugs, tax them and use proceeds for drug treatment and to 'preach' against drug use. Need to put the drug cartels out of business.

    Why not just do this with all crimes?

    Are you even aware that drug laws first came to be in this country because of the scourge of opium?

    So decriminalize recreational drugs, which in turn will cause the amount of drug use and abuse to skyrocket, while using the proceeds taken in by the drug pushers (civil government) to get treatment for those drug addicts and educate them to the evils of drug use (and hence abuse).

    Take a look at the op again, and get back with me. I suppose in your world, murder isnt possible by people way too high to be driving a car or watching a child...
