Yes, but my point was that this is not very far. In fact, I don't think it's far at all. Most people understand that methamphetamine is very harmful and will not use it no matter its legality; those who are inclined to use it will use it in spite of its illegality. In short, the demand curve is fairly inelastic. I think that Portugal proves this (if you think that there is something that makes Portugal different, in terms of demand curves for harmful narcotics, by all means explain).
