Today, the sale and distribution of drugs is a somewhat major crime, but if drugs were legalized, it would virtually eliminate drug dealing, trafficking on the streets. If dealing and trafficking are done through stores or shops, and then the government could put a high sales tax on drugs, and make a very large and steady profit, while at the same time, saving money spent on inmates convicted of drug related crimes. The legalization would even clean up our streets, because people will no longer want to deal drugs, due to the fact that people would not want to buy drugs that could possibly be fake or laced with something. The last benefit of legalizing drugs, is that it could be used for medical

No matter what the choice is, the outcome will have its benefits and disadvantages.
