56. We already have a successful study of the effectiveness of legalization..

We ended prohibition. Mob violence fell over night, businesses sprung up all over to support this new industry, revenue flowed to local, state and federal coffers. Why make some drugs (tobacco, alcohol, caffeine etc) legal while making other less harmful substances illegal? Makes no sense for a modern, world leading nation to trail so many other in what I feel is a human rights issue more so than a getting high and having a good time issue.
