Reality is that it (drugs) are a product that is in demand and it will find a way to reach those who want it. The dollars spent to interdict were always doomed to failure in the same manner as prohibition was a failure. Today's attitude, laws, and help system recognize this failure with alcohol which removes it from the black market model and its associated violence. Because of the money involved, there is much interest in government to keep status quo and it is specifically money and power that keeps it illegal.
