"The reality of our Drug War is the largest prison population in the world and the greatest drug use."

How about some qualification, a reference to some known factual study, some tiny fraction of evidence to support this contention? And if so, is it just possibly due to the fact that most other countries are just so corrupt and inept that they can't keep up with the criminals?

We also happen to be the wealthiest country in the world, which makes us a magnet for the drug trade. Illegal or legal, there will necessarily always be a lot of addictive drugs flowing into this country, more than any other country and we cannot simply look at Portugal and assume we would have similar results.

You cannot simply decriminalize drug use and possession and expect the prisons and jails to miraculously empty themselves of the criminals. There will always be crime associated with addictive drugs until robbery, burglary, racketeering, conspiracy and murder are legalized.
