Part 2: Creative task Should drugs be legalized? Don't you think people should be able to do what they like? We live in a world where millions of dollars are spent every year just to fight organized drug crime, murder, and corruption linked to drug abuse, this problem can be solved with one simple decision, legalizing drugs. The "should drugs be legalized" question has been debated for years. But it is time to make a decision, to find a solution to all these problems, legalization.
