A review of the policies would just allow criminal elements to commandeer the process and gain a brand new unexploited market in illicit substances that government policing currently has stamped down.

Though I suppose the drug economy is a near-perfect model of a 'wealth creation' system benefitting only those at the top, so perhaps he's looking at it from that perspective...
They've no interest in paying attention to evidence on health, education or the economy so it'd be a bit of a travesty if they started running their drugs policy on evidence-based lines...
