Fair points. However, as it stands, it's a class A drug. What about other drugs? Are you saying all drugs should be legalised? Although not Cocaine, it was one albeit dodgy ecstacy (also class A) tablet that killed Leah Betts. How many people die from their first pint, or their first fag?
Leah Betts drowned because she drunk too much water. If she had been educated in how to take Ecstasy safely she'd be here today.
If you legalise it, and then tax it, people will buy still buy it illegally, ie contraband. It will still be cut with things like sugar, talcum powder etc. I doubt the problems would go away...
People would want pure drugs, and therefore pop to Drugs-R-Us before going out at the weekend rather than risking taking utter crap from a shady dealer.
