For all of history, except for the past 50 years or so, they were.

When did drug abuse start becoming a wide-spread problem? The past 50 years.

So, if making them illegal is not solving the problem, maybe we should admit it's been a VERY expensive failure and possibly caused it to become worse.

Good question. Why is alcohol, oxycotton, xanax, nicotine and other drugs legal?

I don't use...and only did a few times growing up. However, I voted yes. The one drug that causes the most problems in this Country is alcohol. When that was banned we had the highest crime rates in history. I say legalize it, tax the heck out of it, and regulate it the same way we do with alcohol.

The only issue I see is determining if someone is "over the limit" to drive the way we easily can with alcohol.

There were no drug laws at all in the U.S. until around the turn of the 20th Century. Society didn't collapse when pot, cocaine, and all of the opiates were legal and widely available. Why should it now?

I'm not saying that making drugs legal wouldn't cause problems. It certainly would. Just look at the societal problems alcohol causes. But making alcohol illegal didn't solve the problem (and some research indicates it made the problems worse). So why would making drugs legal make things that much worse?

I agree with Crappie Luck 100%. I don't use it, but IMO alcohol is far more destructive. If adults want to smoke it in their own homes, it doesn't affect me. Yes, I am a libertarian. I believe in freedom and personal responsibility.

But what if, heaven forbid, they don't use it just in their homes, and become a danger to the public? Just like alcohol I guess?
