And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household.

Deuteronomy 14:26

"I am just a businessman, giving the people what they want"  This quote from Al Capone sums up those who deal in the Black Market.  Prohibition enables men to make an enormous profit through the black market.  The drug lords and gangs of today are the modern result of prohibition.  Prohibition also costs the tax payers dearly in the amount of funds necessary to fight a war on drugs.  Also, prohibition costs the tax payers because of lost revenue, which could be attained, if the substances were taxed and regulated.

I believe in decriminalizing drug use, legalizing marijuana, and regulating all other drugs.  These actions would drastically reduce the amount of money spent by the state; and would provide a much needed source of revenue.  Those who deal unlawfully in regulated substances would, upon conviction, be fined, and their substances confiscated. 

Substance abuse is a spiritual problem, and there is no civil remedy.
