28. Well, there are several improvements legalization would make.
1. You could regulate for purity and dosage, thus reducing chances of accidental O.D.'s, poisonings, etc.

2. It would lower prices and thus crime levels, as fewer desperate people would need to do fewer desperate things to obtain their next fix.

3. It would reduce/end the cartel and distribution chain violence

4. Fewer people fired from jobs or denied jobs due to social stigmatization.

5. If you can't accept evolution, you are denying reality. And that never leads to solutions.
