Maybe Tony Bennett Was Right

Ten years ago Portugal decriminalized all drugs. Everything. That’s junk. Goof balls. Nose Candy. Molly. Tops. Dust. All of it.

This was pretty much unprecedented in the modern Western world. It was a grand experiment, and it’s starting to look like maybe it worked.

Drug abuse is down by half since this policy went into effect.

Criminalization is not the answer. Drugs are not an aggressor that you can wage a “war” on. Addiction comes from within, and trying to fight it with brute force is like performing self surgery. You only end up doing a lot more damage.
