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