These tests wouldn’t solve all the welfare burden because of people with mental illness or disability, but it would offer healing to those who are addicted to drugs.
Kleiman, Mr.Caulkins and Mrs. Hawken, the legalization of drugs would be an ideal solution to eliminate the black market but would result in an increase in drug abuse; an increase in drug abuse would lead to many negative societal effects. The authors claim that although the legalization may not be the most effective way to address the drug war they believe that decriminalization would be a probable solution under strict circumstances. They expand they idea of decriminalization by proposing several programs including 24/7, the “carding” program and HOPE. All three programs focus on diminishing drug addiction amongst the jail population. First, the program 24/7 helps people who are in jail for alcohol related crimes.

As you may know schools have set up a D.A.R.E program to teach kids about drugs. This program is great because it teaches kids from a young age not to do drugs. The U.S. government should also employ a program where people who consume illegal drugs would have to mandatory meetings to help them stop doing drugs if they are caught.
