Needless to say, my answers all revolved around the following:
- Educate people about the effects and dangers of drugs.
- Legalise all drugs. Far more damage is done by the fact that drugs are illegal than is done by the drugs themselves.
- Regulate the purity of drugs, so that the more unpleasant side effects, e.g. brick dust mixed with heroin clogging blood vessels and leading to amputation, are eliminated.
- Tax drugs to pay for the externalities of those who become addicted or otherwise incapacitated through drug use. This would be a very small number; we know this, because it already is a very small number.
Drugs are fun. But most people grow out of taking them eventually (or take them more rarely). Sure, they can kill you, but then so can crossing the road.
Anyway, go and fill in the survey.
