Argument: There is no contradiction in being pro-legalization yet anti-drug use
- Michael C. Chettleburgh. Put the Gangs out of Business: Legalize Drugs. National Post. June 13, 2007 - "There is no contradiction in being pro-drug-reform yet anti-drug use. In its present form, the war on drugs is both bad public policy and a fight we cannot win. All drug users should have the right to harm themselves if they so choose. Recognizing that we cannot eliminate their demand, I would much prefer that drug users purchase their wares in a controlled setting rather than from young gangsters, who effectively control what gets sold, where it gets sold and to whom it gets sold."
