Advocates of legalization and decriminalization argue that illicit drugs should be treated as a health problem rather than an enforcement issue. This wrongly suggests it is an “either-or” proposition. In fact, Canada‚Äôs Drug Strategy calls for a balance between reducing the supply of drugs and the demand. Prevention is considered the most cost-effective approach. There is also strong emphasis on treatment and rehabilitation.
