23. Rates aren't "sky-high"

CDC figures: Percentage of persons over 12 with nonmedical use of psychotherapeutic drugs in last 12 months (including cocaine and heroin but excluding cannabis): 2.8. That's not "sky-high".

And again, please learn the difference between "decriminalised" and "legalised". Dealing would still be subject to criminal penalties. Simple possession would result in referral for treatment. It works in Portugal. http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1893946,00.html
