Economist debate on twitter about legalizing drugs

The London newspaper The Economist is hosting an online debate about legalizing drugs or not.  You can find it at this hashtag #WhereDoYouStand and the Econmist is here on Twitter.   The position of The Economist is here.

I am curious to see what comes of this debate, I personally believe that prohibition causes a multitude of problems, one of the biggest is the way it harms civil society through making an economic transaction illegal.

The Economist has been in favour of legalization for many years and the tenor of the online debate is very much in favour of legalizing.
