Many folks use drugs (alcohol, cigarettes, pot, whatever), for incidental recreational use, without getting into any kind of trouble at all.
Alright, some people can't be trusted to take care of themselves.
Legalizing certain drugs might of course make some of them easier to obtain, but still, the officially legalized drugs make a lot more of casualties than the forbidden ones so far...
Indeed. In part because the illegal ones are harder to obtain.
Forbidding stuff has NEVER ever stopped folks from using it.
What? Of course it has. Perhaps not completely but certainly to a certain degree. You might have a point in a scenario where a person really is HELL-bent on getting the stuff in question, but we're talking ordinary folk here. If something is difficult to obtain, then a lot of curious people will consider it not worth the trouble.
It all comes down to proper eduction and information. IMHO.
You may call me patronizing but this is borderline naive. People aren't smart/mature enough, especially not when there's peer pressure involved.

Tea of truth:
