Proof: Legalising drugs decreases use

Proof: Legalising drugs decreases use

As clearly demonstrated in Portugal and the Netherlands, legalising drugs works. The Young Turks comment on some of the evidence.

Latest comment: Why does BoreMe show this rubbish? If 'The Young Turks' are supposed to be the height of intelligence in the US, then I pity the Americans. I agree with slicksps, binge drinking in the UK is even worse now than it was before relaxing legislation; ultimately it is a cultural problem in the UK, since on the continent, so far, they donít have such drinking issues. Therefore, I believe making drugs legal in the UK is not a very wise decision and since excess is part of both cultures (UK & US), I donít believe the US would benefit from a change in drug legislation either.

Tobacco is decriminalised and is one of the world's biggest killers. Alcohol is also a legal drug, deaths are on a rapid increase. I'm with the idea of free will however, government regulation could help keep drugs pure and safer but I don't really see why legalising it cuts users. They do mention how dealing is still illegal which could help as users are getting help, sellers are still going to prison

I'm for legalisation, though this show is terrible. Do people actually watch this?
