That's another example of why I think some ideas about legalisation are so unrealistic: the issue isn't between "regulation as a crime" and "no regulation at all", it's about the most effective form of regulation to minimise adverse medical and social problems. On most counts the "war on drugs" ultra-criminalisation approach looks to have made the situation worse rather than better, but nothing that looks like taking business away from criminals is going to stop them being criminals: they'll either seek to find some illegal form of the regulated product (the equivalent of moonshine, or smuggled and untaxed tobacco), or they'll move on to something else.
