A Drug Reform Group letter

This letter, published on 30 May 2006 in, highlights the benefits to society of ending the war on drugs and instead regulating and controlling currently illicit substances. Criminals would be put of the drug trade business as the price would be kept down, thereby excluding them from currently profitable trades. Problem users would be treated for their health problems rather than criminalized and law enforcement officers could focus on reducing crimes where "people are in real trouble". The letter makes reform seem a no-brainer.
