The point has been explained in this thread and in the article posted by anitram:
  • less criminal activity;
  • controlled drug usage with clean needles etc. So less overdosages and diseases;
  • a better chance for the drug users to battle their addiction.

I think this also a good opportunity to get rid of the idea that, being addicted is a crime an sich and that these people, in a way, are victims too.
