Thesis: Keep Criminalized Empirical Earning huge sums of money is rare and that a steady worker at McDonalds can make more money than many drug dealers. We have drug laws to make drug use an unattractive choice. Dealing drugs leads to murder or prison. So by keeping it legal, we maintain the criminal sanctions that persuade most people that the good life cannot be reached dealing drugs. The cost of not enforcing laws against illegal drug will lead to more drug related accidents, bigger lose in work productivity, more drop outs, premature infants. The end result will be that the costs of treatment, social welfare, and insurance will rise. Legalization advocates think that street crime will disappear with the repeal of drug laws, but it has been researched that drug criminals were into crime before they got into drugs. They would continue to rob, steal, and do drug trafficking, by undercutting the legalized price and catering to teens.
