Banning this drug has damaged the economy, stymied new industries, reduced support for chronic disease sufferers and made people's recreational life less colourful. It is a drug that promotes harmony, as opposed to alcohol, which is the bane of every town centre on a Friday or Saturday night. It is a drug that inspires artistic output and is a useful tool for widening one's perception. It carries health risks, but these appear to be acceptable, especially when compared to other risky activities which are not illegal, such as suicide and more mundane ones, like ridiing a bicycle.
Many politicians refuse to talk about this drug in a factually substantiated way, at least in public. And surely this idea is actually a litmus test for the efficacy of the whole website.
