Since the 20’s and the 30’s when the probation of alcohol took place, the legalizing of drugs have become an issue. Many representatives of the government, some organizations and just ordinary people have argued a lot whether drugs must be legalized or not. There are many arguments which support every of both sides. People who think that it is necessary to legalize narcotics prove this mind in a way that its usage will increase the economy of the country. It will be the great and stable inner source for the local economy and business. Such people believe that being legal; drugs will reduce the great amount of money which was spent on the law enforcement. In conclusion, they say that legalization of the drugs will be the real benefit for the federal budget.
People who don’t favor the process of legalization of drug support their decision in the following way. They think that after legalization narcotics will be cheaper and more accessible. But all we know that these substances cause a rapid increase of the most serious diseases. Humans become dependent and even can commit the crime just to get the new portion of drugs. Such people can’t live without the daily usage of the drugs and the aim of their lives is to get as many narcotics as possible and to be satisfied with them.
Economy’s revenue would be increased with the help of drugs legalization. The prohibition and alcohol taxes were increased at the 21st amendment. And people worry that the same thing will happen with narcotics. It is required to tax marijuana heavily for increasing the revenue. And in this situation people who make and made drugs will also make the medicine treatments such as aspirin. That is why the quality will be on the proper level, and substances will have no adulterants or poisons.
If the drugs would be legal, the great sums of money for the annual enforcement will be reduced. On the one step ahead of the enforcement users and drug dealers are, who provide the dependent people with drugs. There are lots of them, and if someone is caught, another dealer will substitute him. The system has no chances for winning. Twenty years ago, in 1996, $10 billion were spent just on the enforcing laws concerning drugs. Approximately 40% of people being in federal prison are violators of drug law. And it is really hard to imagine what will happen after official legalization of the narcotics. The government spends so much money, but there is still no solution to solve this serious problem.
