If you look at the raw numbers, everything you have said here is wrong. Netherlands have legalized but kept a strict watch on drugs, they have a lower abuse rate than the United States. Switzerland has a stronger gun control policy than the United States, yet violent crime and murders are more commonplace in America.

A brief appeal to hard facts show that a more liberal policy on both have helped in both countries compared to the US. Maybe not significantly, but lives can be spared and I am for that.
