Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - May 8, 1994, Kokomo, Indiana Sunday May Kokomo Tribune D5 Advice Advice Advice Advice Advice Advice Peter Gott Deaf Goth Do you feel that legalization of drugs would be a detriment to out society Dear reader The lines ate cer tainly being drawn on this com plex issue The proponents of decriminalization or legalization point to the fact that the use of narcotics such as cocaine has really not increased since the beginning of this century They claim this proves that the problem isnt all that big and thus far no policy of control has been effective Supporters also believe that many of the problems stemming from the use of illegal drugs are directly related to con trol of this industry by orga nized crime If drugs were legal ized the argument goes billions of dollars in illicit profits would evaporate severely crippling the crime cartels and reducing the incidence of serious felonies On the other hand opponents of decriminalization take the posi tion that you dont solve a prob lem by making the very cause of the problem drugs more readily available Even if drugs were eventually legalized there would still have to be certain con trols age restriction for thus a huge black market might spring Up in which organized crime would willingly invest and we would be back to square one In addiction there will always be profits to be made from drugs Do we really want our state and fed eral governments on whom the responsibility for the manufac ture importation distribution and sale of drugs would fall to make money on such venture This seems like crass hypocrisy I do not believe that either of these extremes would be an answer Prom dealing with alco holics in my practice I know that you dont motivate addicts to give something up by making it easier to obtain Further I worry that an acrosstheboard legalization of really dangerous drugs such as narcotics would indicate to juve niles tacit approval by adults that drugs are They are not and this is certainly not a message we want to give to our schoolchild ren In my view certain drugs should be legalized laws should decriminalize the cul tivation and possession for per sonal use of marijuana Our legal system is currently inundated by relatively trivial issues concerning marijuana The overemphasis on this substance clogs the courts to the point where narcotics dealers are often given a mere slap on the wrist If marijuana were legalized law enforcement and punishment could be more focused on the dealers and suppliers who should be summarily dealt with using strict prison terms Finally I think that there should be more emphasis on prevention and treatment Attempted inter diction of drugs entering the Unit ed States hasnt worked because as long as there is a demand therell be a supply We need to educate our young about the dan gers of addictive substances MoyingXStorage IN TOWN or across country for affordable moving and storage Collins Moving Systems Call Jim Greg or Tracy at
