Perhaps we ought to try it, and then ditch the laws that don't work. To me that's way better than partial and/or selective enforcement, where laws are wielded as weapons by police, lawyers, judiciary and politicians to stamp down on whoever they don't like.

I always thought there should be a one-in-one-out rule. Want new legislation? Cool. Find something to repeal!
