Prohibition and Proliferating Drug Use Down Under

Prohibition seems to be working really well in Australia with nearly 17% of all employees using illegal drugs according to this survey included in this article published on the 6th August 2006 in Adelaide Now.
Given that nearly one fifth of the working population in Australia admits to taking illegal substances and given that law enforcement would likely incarcerate such individuals is the criminal justice framework of prohibition a sensible economic policy?
