Young people need to know their government believes drug use is not just an alternative lifestyle, but a serious problem for them and for society. In a legalization scenario, there will be more arrests for serious crimes because arrests are more often than not the result of altered, and often violent, behavior that is caused by mind-altering drug use than by a need to support a drug habit.
Stephen C. Delgado, special agent in charge, DEA, San Francisco Field Division, San Francisco
