If Illegal Drugs Were Taxed….?

Question by Matt: If illegal drugs were taxed….?
like alcohol and tobacco, how much would it net the Federal government and would that be enough to fund all the drug treatment/prevention programs? Would drug use go up or down?

Best answer:

Answer by quizzard123
it would go way up, since many people who would otherwise use do not due to fear of arrest.

Nobody can say what taxation of illegal drugs would produce, since nobody knows the price or the tax rate.
