Drugs!

A very good piece today totalling up the costs to the UK taxpayer of illegal drugs:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2009/apr/07/drugs-policy-legalisation-report

I personally am all in favour of legalising drugs because:
the dealers are the biggest problem, not the takers or the tokers. Take the dealers out of the loop and there is a big problem solved in itself.

quality can be assured and set by the gov.

tax! tax the drugs, money goes into the treasury rather than a dealer

pisses off the Daily Mail - reason enough.

drink is a problem, so maybe a more balanced approach to getting intoxicated is needed. Afterall, who ever saw two stoners fight or attack a shop window after a night out?
also, the revenue from the drugs could then be put back into tackling the problem, rather than trying to push it ever further underground
