where do the taliban in Afghanistan get the lions share of their cash? Well they dont just grow all those Poppies because they're pretty.

So... by legalizing it this will hurt the Taliban somehow? Are you suggesting that it be law that you can only buy it from US poppy fields or something? If you're caught with the drugs, how would the police/government know weather it came from America or Afghanistan?

Just imagine if all the profits made from heroin went to helping the addicts instead of up a big criminal chain.

You really think this would happen? Do all the profits from the sale of tobacco go to helping the addicts? Of course not! They go to people who are already very rich, and the addicts just have to go on buying their product. Having said all this, I'm all for the legalization of cannabis. It doesn't really hurt anyone and alcohol is actually a much more dangerous substance. But heroin et al. are a different story completely, and should remain illegal IMO.
