The obvious answer is no of course not. There would still be serial killers,wars and people out to get revenge. But this could reduce the death toll in assosiation with the drug trade. There are always wars over drugs in the drug producing countries and in result are many deaths.
If drugs were legalized people in the recieving countries would start to make these drugs and would in turn reduce the amount of drug providers in the other countries making them because it would be less productive and cause them to find other drugs.
So this idea could stop a few deaths but might not be worth it if everyone becomes paranoid and they all have the munchies.
