I'm sorry, but I can't see that arguement holding any weight. Although I am pro legalization, I couldn't see myself using that as point. I know way too many people who, if given the chance, would ruin their lives on drugs. The fact that its not easy to get harder drugs, and the prices they can charge for them, keeps them off it. If it was legalized, I would give it a year and the drug problem would skyrocket. Normal people would turn into addicts.
Edit- The government also doesn't have total control over your body. You want to pierce it beyond recognition? Go ahead. Want to cover yourself in tatoos? Have fun. But once you allow free reign on drug use, it won't just effect the person using, it will effect his/her family, the people close to him/her, and the people they would scheme/rob to feed their habit. It's not longer just your body, it's the family of the father abandoned to pursue his habit. It's the children of junkies who don't know who their parents are, because they were taken by social services for unsafe conditions. Drug abuse effects more than just the user.
EDIT AGAIN- Pot isn't one of those drugs, btw. If you can't quit weed than you were doomed from birth.
