A nice little overview article at About by Andrew Somers is now online: How do we end the War on Drugs?. The recommendations:
- End the black market by ending prohibition.
- Regulate the manufacture, sale, and distribution of soft substances using the alcohol model.
- Use taxation, and spread the revenues so generated to education and treatment efforts.
- 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.
