Why Drug Prohibition is a Failed Policy

  1. Does psychoactive drugs cause addiction?
  2. When does an addict become an addict?
  3. When has an addict recovered?


  1. No. Use is present at sometime in the addict’s life.
  2. Unknown. When use is disruptive to the addict and others is a common definition. Addicts’ thought processes are distorted long before drug use begins.
  3. Never. Absence of drug use does not mean recovery or remission.
