With amounts of drugs being sold and consumed in the UK at an all time high, what can be done differently  now to help reduse crime and the amount of deaths due to drugs? The model for how drugs have been dealt with in the past , this being arresting people taking and selling scheduled substances, failling miserably, maybe its time for a change.
