Yes the war on drugs is a failure. The discouragement of drug use is laudable.
Enforcement should continue on the trafficking and distribution level but discontinue on the user level. The product and profits captured from the enforcement of trafficking and distribution could be used to stock complimentary neighborhood dispensaries. This would set up a tension between the "for-profit" and "non-profit" dynamics that would take the cash incentives out of the trafficking and distribution.
Drug testing must be instituted for recipients of government subsidized housing and other safety net programs.
