Review of Prohibition

Comment 7th July 2010

Just two things:–

1. The prohibition of drugs has been a complete failure and actually causes more damage.

2. We need to review all drugs, including tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, legal highs and illegal use of prescription-only medicines, on a level playing field with no preconceptions.

I would expect our liberal (?) government to set up a review as soon as possible with a view to making recommendations on a comprehensive reform of legislation on drug use and supply.  But perhaps they are too conservative(?) for this?

Think of the extra tax revenue we could raise during the recession!

Why does this matter?

This is not just a civil liberties issue, but would also reduce crime and boost the economy.
