ah good old "Prohibition", puritanical ignorance, still wrecking the world and peoples' lives 90 years after the self righteous hypocritical gits were proven wrong!
/sarcasm mode off
UK is currently in midst of finally admitting to the need to decriminalize marijuana
drug problems were never near as bad back in the days when they were LEGAL and you could buy them
should just control distribution to prevent over commercialization (as we've seen with alcohol, letting Big Business control addictive drugs becomes a problem)
recreational drugs should be expensive and somewhat difficult to acquire, and that most definitely includes alcohol
registered addicts should be given their drug free as a prescription, basic form though (much cheaper and safer for society as has been proven REPEATEDLY)
use of such drugs or addiction would be notified or checked for jobs requiring safety, ie, you toke snort or drink, you do not fly commercial airliners for a week, like it or not.
I have very damn little sympathy for ratbags who booze and run down children on the roads, for example...do not pass "go" do not collect $200..go straight to jail.
you want to take recreational drugs, do it at home.
research though...apart from toxicity/safety and fraudulent re-selling concerns, only limits should be sensible ones, not puritanically BS
*points to US becoming by almost all definitions a police state, the collapse of Mexico as a functioning modern state etc, as proof of my position*
