The reason that people always bring up the "hard drugs," as you call them, is because of the crime issue. The claim that we can eliminate the influence, power and wealth of the drug cartels by legalizing marijuana only works if you also legalize all the drugs a cartel would be likely to switch to if one source of revenue (marijuana) was cut off. Therefore, to make an argument based on such a view means that you are also arguing in favor of legalizing the "hard drugs."
