Subject - unintended consequences of re-legalizing drugs: The healthcare costs are (or should be) in the control of the individual that chooses to do risky things. Any public healthcare concerns are due to recently-socialized medicine. ... No one can monitor expectant mothers 24/7 for risky behavior. ... Business owners could fire unreliable employees. Only if there are still oppressive regulations. I advocate repealing those - on alcohol and tobacco, too. All drugs should be over-the-counter. "Impact" not specific enough. Don't get me started on government schools (they should not exist) Irrelevant - assumes that the number of people that take a certain drug has some importance. The war on needles causes this tragedy. Repealing needle prohibition will reduce this. There's no utopia; I'll take my chances with liberty.As far as "alcohol-related", there are still too many laws about drinking. Again, all drug were legal for 125 years. I advocate neither "free" needles nor special drug parks. Prostitution is a vice, not a crime.
