Option E, channelize means to hollow out something which has a close meaning to elimination, moreover, a number of measures have been discussed in the para, which should be seen as a collective entity, a plan.

Option B is correct. As clearly written that consumption can be prevented which means reduced not eliminated. Also, it is impossible to eliminate anything.

According to me, the answer must be B. As whole passage is about how we can reduce the drug usage. Option D is just a way to reduce consumption but not the meaning of the whole para.

Drugs cannot be eliminated by simply banning sale because it generates greater profit for criminal organizations if they are illegal (less accessible); going hand-in-hand with people emotionally/mentally dependent on drugs.

As long as we are human; we have emotion. The moment we lose our emotion we will have no need to escape the negative emotions we experience; hence no longer needing drugs as an escape. Prohibition on alcohol didn't work, did it?
