Fighting Drug Abuse Requires Ending Prohibition

A nice little overview article at About by Andrew Somers is now online: How do we end the War on Drugs?. The recommendations:

  1. End the black market by ending prohibition.
  2. Regulate the manufacture, sale, and distribution of soft substances using the alcohol model.
  3. Use taxation, and spread the revenues so generated to education and treatment efforts.
  4. Provide addicts with clean supplies to demolish the black market, and greatly increase the availability of treatment options for them in a non-criminal setting.
