Repeal current Drug laws. Replace based on Science not Politics

Comment 3rd July 2010

Our current Drug laws are not working. They are regularly amended by politians to appeal to various sections of voters. The scientific community are best placed to give an unbiased assessment of the dangers of each intoxicant.

We should repeal the Misuse of Drugs Act and replace it with one based on scientific evidence, not media-led populist scare-stories. Social and Economic expertise can inform practical mechanisms for controlling drug use.




Why does this matter?

It is in everyones interest to rethink our drug laws. As well as social deprivation and public health, the sheer £cost of police operations to combat drugs and the associated crime, legal process and incarceration is staggering. several tens of £billions per year.

We must rethink our approach entirely, whether it is popular or not.
