    Prof. Miron: Yes! Makes sense to legalize drugs, eliminate crime, money spent on “war,” take away profit–and lessen opportunity for addiction. But would it? I thought so until I read “Legalization Of Crugs: The Myths and the Facts”, by R L. Maginnis, Family Research Council. Surprise: alcohol consupmption DECREASED under Prohibition! Drug addiction would INCREASE under legalization! Please, professor, address this conundrum: Legalization=less crime=more addiction!

    Thank you!
