Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What a shame, I was so hoping to goad you into presenting a rational argument for proscription argued from first principles. ;-)

That's easy.  

  1. If you like the people who are taking drugs, turn a blind eye on the grounds that they know what they are doing and its their life anyway.

  2. If you don't like the people who are doing drugs because they are engaging in crime to fund their habit prosecute the hell out of them.

  3. You REALLY don't like the illicit drug trade because it takes market share and profits from the legit drug trade - cigarettes, alcohol and pharmaceuticals.  DECLARE WAR ON THE ILLEGAL DRUG TRADE

Ok, any other small world problems you want m to solve?
