If WP allowed original research it would become a haven for every idiot conspiracy theorist, birther, flat earther moron out there. It would also lower the quality of the information on wikipedia because it would mean that the information is not independantly verifiable.

Its not rocket surgery. Just because wikipedia removed your article on Sailor Moon power items does not mean the policies are wrong.

Not to mention you can:

1. Regulate it. By having drugs produced by companies instead of some dude in a basement the quality will be better, leading to less deaths. If there -are- deaths, the companies can be held accountable.

2. Tax it. Instead of spending billions on stopping drug crime, you can make billions off it by heavily taxing it.

3. Stop putting non-violent drug criminals in jail.. where they learn to be violent and become a plague on society when they get out.
