...sanity in the Grauniad. I don't know if just because there seems to be lots of Brown kicking going on over there but the article from Paul Corry is a step in the right direction. There is no justification for Cannabis to be reclassified as a class B drug, indeed I can see no motivation for doing so apart from the OEGK wanting to look like a hard man. You have to be out when Mr Sane calls to launch a study on the effects of a policy and then on getting the results that show what you want to do will make matters worse, insist on doing so anyway.
However, given the bizarre numptiness of the "War on Drugs", perhaps we shouldn't be so astonished. The vast majority of harm from all drugs comes from their illegality. From both Libertarian and Utilitarian viewpoints all drugs should be legalised, licenced and taxed to account for negative externalities.
There is only one party willing to make the changes, so obvious in their beneficial effects, that are required. You will find the Libertarian Party UK here.
