This paper briefly discusses and compares two articles that address the pros and cons of drug legalization. It discusses Ethan A. Nadelmann's article, "Commonsense Drug Policy" and Eric A. Voth's article, "America's Longest War." The paper examines the content of each article and compares their views on the legalization of drugs and how it has affected US society.
From the Paper:"Both of these articles present the arguments of the authors quite well, especially with Nadelmann's article which runs more than fifteen pages and is filled with data and information from some very reliable sources. On the other hand, Voth's article is rather short and is far more subjective than the Nadelmann article. Although Voth's argument for drug prevention and treatment is valid, he seems to have missed the point entirely when it comes to a logical approach to dealing with drug use in the United States. For the general reader, Nadelmann's argument is presented much better, due to its supportive evidence and the fact that Nadelmann is the director of the Lindesmith Center in New York City, a very prominent drug policy research institution."
