9. Well...

people who want drugs can get them without that much trouble. Criminalising the possession and sale of drugs is clearly not working. The USA has the largest number of prisoners in the world, both on a per capita basis and in absolute terms; most of those are there for nonviolent drug offences. Decriminalisation and treating addiction as a medical issue would be much more sensible.
