I completely agree. I have told this to people for years. You have this population addicted to this drug we would produce for pennies and instead of working with them we make it illegal and challenge them through theft, prostitution, and street dealing just so they can supply their habit. Furthermore, I heard that in the countries that started the dealers dry up and new heroin addicts are simply few and far in between. I suspect that laws were not originally designed to help these people but rather to exert control over them. On a side note, with all the problems alcohol causes it amazes me we sell it but worry so much about others such as marijuana.
