Police Captain Discusses The War On Drugs

This retired Police Captain has some very logical arguments as to why we should legalise all drugs.

One of the main arguments people raise against ending prohibition relates to the fear that if all drugs are legal people more people will be taking them.

Peter Christ gives the example of tobacco. Tobacco is legal but as a society we have made it so undesirable that huge amounts of people are quitting each year and the number of people who smoke drops significantly each year.

Between 2001 and 2012 the percentage of the Australian population that smokes dropped from 27.2% of males and 21.2% of females to 20.4% of Males and 16.3% of females.*

He has many other great arguments that are hard to argue against.
