My own opinion regarding this issue is that Holland has the best model for the "war on drugs". Holland spends far less that the U.S. does and has better outcomes. The Dutch government has had the maturity and wisdom to realize that this problem is not going away but simply has to be managed.
Furthermore, I strongly suspect that much of the effort directed towards this issue would be far more productive if it were put into better mental health access and better child protection services.
