Yes, and also implement mandatory rehabilitation protocols and social support programming for users like Portugal has.

Yes, but only when supported by a robust, well-funded, 4-pillar strategy.(prevention, treatment, harm reduction, and enforcement). No half-measures, compromises to appeal to uninvested political factions (left or right), including forcible detention for detox and rehab outside of major, high risk for relapse environments and communities.

Yes, I belive that the government should step into the sector. Allowing people to purchase any drug to ensure that it is as safe as it can be. Remove the criminal element from the trade, then funnel profits back into the system to assist with helping people get clean.

Decriminalization requires social supports to function. It is the last step in many steps toward actually ending the war on drugs.
