Illegal Drugs 2 x 2

For the last five years, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service's National Survey on Drug Use and Health has consistently found 0.2 percent of Americans reported meth use within a month of the survey. Four times as many Americans reported regular cocaine use; 30 times more reported regular marijuana use and 90 times more reported binge drinking, according to the report's data.
The image of a teenage kids beating up their own mother so that they can steal money from her purse and the scene in which a young woman has sex in exchange for drugs will not quickly fade from memory.
In August 2005, Newsweek called meth an "epidemic" and a "plague" and slapped the headline "America's Most Dangerous Drug" on its cover.
An increasing number of people are coming to the conclusion that this so-called "war on drugs" has been lost and that other options need to be explored.
Is the current drug-control effort a waste of money and lives? Are there any alternative options?
