„Drugs should be legalised“

I, like the vast majority   of people, disagree with proposition that drugs should be legalised. Accepting this act would be the same like taking money from people for killing them. We don‘t need legalisation, we need to fight against it, try to save people who are standing on the edge of a precipice, not to push them from it.
Of course, there are many people   who would agree with this proposition, but most of them are drug users or spreaders. Supporters of this act say that   legalised drugs would   reduce criminality as drug addicts are forced to do crimes to get money for drugs. Also, they are using freedom of   choice to convince that drugs should be legalised. But I think, that since a minute you first taste drugs , you do not belong to yourself anymore, you belong to drugs. So where is the freedom here?
There is a lot more arguments against legalisation of drugs. First of all , if drugs would be legalised , everyone could afford it, because it would cost less and nobody would arrest you. Thus easy availability of drugs would push more and more people into self   destruction. Nowadays , about 200 mln. of peope abuse drugs. These numbers are intimidating, considering that it is growing every day.
However, the most terryfying thing about all this   is average age   of drug users. According to NIDA – National Institute on Drug Abuse -   teenagers first trie drugs at the age of 13 – 16 and the main reason   for   that is peer pressure. Presently, it‘s not very easy to get drugs for teenagers, but due to easy availability of drugs , if they would be legalised, they could get it from older friends, who would be able to get drugs legallly.   If drugs would be legalised, danger to get addicted to drugs for young   individuals would increase and that would be a disaster. Youth is the future of humanity, whereas drugs legalisation would destroy their future even before they start living. Drugs lead world to social and medical catastrophe.
