Decriminalise and tax recreational drugs, in the same way as alcohol and tobacco.

Why is this idea important?

Much police time and effort goes into the war on drugs, despite this drugs are available throughout the country. Drug quality is poor and the use of diluters is common leading to health problems. Tax raised is a useful income stream and some of it could be used for education and rehabilitation. Use of government health warnings would give information to users and potential users. Crime would go down. This works for alcohol and tobacco why not other drugs?
