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?

Answer:

  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.
