Tonight Connect The World looks at the effects of illegal drugs all around the world and we want to know you if you think illegal drugs should be made legal.

Just as he is stepping down as the President of the Royal College of Physicians in England,  Professor Sir Ian Gilmour has declared his country is losing the war on drugs.  Gilmour is calling for the  decriminalization of drugs because he says he's seen more addicts in hospitals because of contaminated drugs and dirty needles.

So do you think illegal drugs should be made legal? Would decriminizaliation better serve the fight against drugs? Do you think only certain types of drugs should be legalized in certain places?

Leave us all your thoughts on this subject in our comments section below and we'll feature some of them on tonight's program.
