4. Uggghhhh

This is a revival of Cold War rhetoric but even more over-the-top.

Legalizing most drugs, whatever you think of it from a health point of view, is actually likely to reduce crime, as a lot of crime is committed and escalated by drug gangs, whose leaders get rich on drug prohibition as American gangsters of the 1920s got rich on alcohol prohibition.

Some of the rest seems to be just not wanting all of us to be subjected to Orwellian surveillance in order to possibly catch a few crooks.

And a lot of the rest is just dog-whistling as you say.
