John Stossel: drug myths debunked?

I'm not sure to what degree various drugs are dangerous or not, but regardless I don't see any reason why people should go to jail for using drugs, when they ONLY use drugs.  Now if criminals are convicted of an additional crime as well as using drugs I have no problem with drug use being a factor in the sentencing of the individual convicted.  All I know is the "war on drugs" is failing and our jails are filled up with people convicted of drug use.  I just think a rehabilitation program would do better than jail time.
