Decriminalize minor drug offences and tax the sector with legal state run outlets , thereby freeing up the criminal justice system for more pressing areas , destroying areas of the illegal trade in drugs that involves huge public expenditure and is largely ineffective.
Renforcing driving laws and workplace checks will provide adequate safeguard against abuse and in the case of cannabis will all but prevent the use of this type of drug as it remains in the bloodstream for up to 30 days .
Why does this idea matter?
The war on drugs is costly and ineffective and should be approached in a more intelligent manner if society is to break the hold of illegal drug syndicates on society .
Once made legal the appeal will wain for all but a dedicated few and thereby save the taxpayer large amounts of money urgently needed for other areas of society .
