In 1970, Congress passed the Controlled Substances Act which banned the manufacture, importation, possession, use and distribution of certain drugs. The act ranked drugs by their potential for abuse and placed them into five categories. Two of the most widely used drugs in the U.S., wine and alcohol, are exempt from the classifications. Ballot measures in several states including Colorado, Washington and Oregon have decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. These laws apply only within the respective states and have no effect on Federal law. See recent drug policy news

Yes but not all drugs. Prevention should be treatment based not prison for users. Jail should be reserved for large traffickers of illegal and black market drugs. Black market in this model would be comparative to tax evasion. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Daly City, CA
Any illegal drug, except for marijuana. Many other drugs are synthetically created and have harmful affects, however marijuana is being legalized as medicinal uses. How much money do you think is being sent on incarceration on marijuana alone?. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Ellendale, TN
