Damage from the War on Drugs

We spend $40 billion each year on the War on Drugs, and as has been pointed out elsewhere, this investment is highly destructive.  Any gains that the economy makes by having that $40 billion pumped into law enforcement budgets to employ police/FBI agents/etc. and their suppliers are far outweighed by the negative consequences, notably increases in organized crime, money laundering, corruption, lost productivity, and more.
