The Editor,

The following letter is written in response to the article Drugs fuel rash
of break-ins: RCMP

You know that if drugs were available in a legal, regulated market at
reasonable prices, the worst a drug user could do would be to hurt
themselves by abusing the drugs.

They would not have to rob anyone to support the black market and,
indirectly, the police who use the crime to justify an increased budget.
