Drug Legalization: Table of (Possible) Consequences PHL 304: Michael Sevel Legal Not Legal Positive Positive Government could regulate like alcohol & tobacco Legal sanctions and small supply discourages use Money spent on enforcement could be spent on treatment and rehab Laws deter many people from trying drugs May not increase addicts (forbidden fruit theory) Reduces availability and increases price of drugs Would prevent drug dealers from handing out free doses to get addicts hooked Monopolizes law enforcement resources, so they cannot be put to preventing simpler crimes (robbery, assault, etc.) Street crime would drop dramatically Drug education programs are more effective Raise the quality of law enforcement Any drug policy is unenforceable Would reverse trend towards more potent drugs and more dangerous methods of consumption (cf. cigarettes, 168) Too costly (particularly to tax payers, e.g., law enforcement and prosecution of offenders) Drug use would be safer Gives scientists time to research drug abuse

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
