The death rates from illegal drug overdoses in the US and the rate of addiction constitutes an epidemic throughout the country. The number of brain damaged children (autism,learning disabilities etc) who’s mothers used illegal drugs is at an all time high and is also part of this epidemic. Those who advocate the legalization of marijuana and other drugs are ignorant of history. Like Prohibition or not but after it was repealed the amount of alcohol related deaths, diseases and social dysfunction sky rocketed. sorry but it really happened and with the legalization of marijuana, thigs will get worse.
