(cont)....This scenario is just one of many situations that I have never heard those who advocate decriminalization or legalization address. I agree that the status quo, frequently referred to as the "War on Drugs", is inadequate. But I have yet to hear a suggestion from someone who differs with me that has a chance of truly improving things.

" ... violating my "right" to shop there in comfort". This says it all.

Expected by whom? I don't think you quite understand the concepts of liberty and personal choice.

El Chapo haunts the streets of Chicago. His ghost hoards cash in Los Angeles stash houses. His shadow darkens underground tunnels between Mexico and the U.S. His spirit drives his clan to bloodshed. The world’s most-wanted kingpin may be dead. But the Sinaloa cartel will thrive until America legalizes drugs.
