"’It is about taking it out of the hands of organised criminals and giving it to doctors, pharmacists and governments who can get the market under control."

That's right - because organised crime syndicates will just go "ah well, that's us finished then".:rolleyes:

Think of all the lovely tax revenues they can bring in to keep the unsustainable system going a little longer. Add some more products to the already profitable legal drug captive market.

So just what exactly is 'the war on drugs' these days ? I suspect some of you are still fighting the last one...

The one started during the Nixon administration to disrupt the Black rights movement.

They'd have no market if it was done properly.

And with taxes and rising costs you create the current black market for cheaper drugs so it actually solves nothing.

So Notwell, what is better:

  • All monies made are kept in criminal hands and we pay a fortune in the legal system (from detection all the way through to rehabilitation)

or

  • Say...90% of monies being inserted in the tax system, less expenditure on the legal system and 10% of monies existing in criminal circles.

Well it does. It adds a bit more revenue to government coffers.

You'll never eradicate the desire for idiots to want to contribute towards an early death no matter what you do. They'd raid B&Q for paint thinners or gas canisters to sniff if all else failed.

Hopefully, yes would be the ideal answer to that one
