You are wrong about the drug legalization and less crime The mental illness, child abuse and other effects of drugs will increase with legalization. Portugal saw 40% INCREASE IN MURDER RATES not a decrease. They also saw an increase in young adolescents using harder drugs. This information is being kept from us by the American Media.. especially a faulty report by the liberal Cato. Legalization will put more of those same Mafia members we are all afraid of in power and in government.
