I doubt that.  It is way to easy to lose control when half the people in
a country are stoned most of the time.

This is a typical pro drug war mentality/argument.

The fact is, if drugs were completely legalized, it probably wouldn't
change the ratio of stoned to non stoned much, if at all, and in many
cases, over time, the number of drug users would actually go down.

And we'd have a lot of LE and penal system employees on welfare along with a lighter load on the courts. I suspect that the tax burden would be a LOT less, though, and that the number of deaths from overdose would eventually decrease.
