Drugs war already lost

Blairs Drug Tsar said that even cannabis was 'evil' and 'addictive' and would always lead to users moving to harder drugs.

He refused to admit that smoking tobacco and drinking were at least as dangerous as smoking cannabis.

By doing this, he alienates many young people and ensure that whatever he says about drugs in future he will be ignored, just as the DEA in the USA is often laughed at when it proclaims the evils of cannabis use.

They'd be better to legalise it, have limits like blood alcohol limits set in law, and tax it.... too progressive for our new (Tory) Labour government though.
