I don't think ending the war on drugs will end gun violence. I do believe ending the war on drugs will reduce a lot of gun violence. The war on drugs is a failure and should never have started. If somebody wants to use drugs that is their business and until their use of drugs violates the rights of another it should be allowed.
Personally, I don't use any "illegal' drugs because that is a requirement to keep my job and has been a condition of my employment for over 20 years. I get paid way too much to throw my income away over a joint, line of cocaine or opiod.
I do use alcohol, because it is legal, but not while working. Even the legal drug of alcohol is restricted by my employer and past employers. As in, I am not allowed to drink at work.

If the government can't keep drugs away from inmates who are locked in steel cages, surrounded by barbed wire, watched by armed guards, drug-tested, strip-searched, X-rayed, and videotaped - how can it possibly stop the flow of drugs to an entire nation?

Alcohol didn't cause the high crime rates of the '20s and '30s, Prohibition did. And drugs do not cause today's alarming crime rates, but drug prohibition does.
