Attacking the "dope fiends". Isn't that what the US has been trying for
years with it's "War On Drugs"?  And what effect has that had, oh it's made
the companies that build prisons richer, turned a lot of ppl into criminals,
and pushed huge amounts of money into the hands of the suppliers (of course
that includes the CIA who can use it to fund ppl like the Taliban).

The classic liberal cure would be to legalise all drugs, although in a most
unPC manner, think about the wonderful effect on the US economy if all those
narco dollars became subject to tax!

I'm just glad I live in a country where the person who's likely to be our
next Prime Minister is showing an educated and thoughtful approach to some
aspects of the drugs debate.
