Should all drugs be legalized or decriminalized nationwide?

My personal opinion is that at least marijuana should be made legal nationwide, yet be regulated like tobacco and alcohol. But I'm not sure about more potent drugs like crack and meth. Just want to know...what is everyone else's opinion about this?

1. Start with weed. I think going for it all wouldn't fly anyway. I suppose

I'd even be willing to let someone like a meth addict get legal pharmaceutical speed if that's what they need. Not good, but if treatment and prison isn't working, better to have some way to avoid them using that garbage. Also help eliminate a lot of the meth labs.

3. legalize mj. decriminalize hard drugs and get people in treatment programs

to help them function in society and to reduce the social costs of addiction.

4. That's the way to do it.

I could never support 100% legal meth.

Oh, and treatment programs for opioid addicts too, since it's the number one drug problem in America.

6. Marijuana should be regulated and taxed like alcohol.

I don't really have a clear opinion on other drugs.
