A glimmer of hope ...

... regarding the insanity of our drug laws:'

The only possible reason for continuing with our current anti-drug regime is that politicians are being paid off by the 'criminals' to keep laws in place that will result in ludicrous street prices for simple chemicals and herbs which cannot (as yet) be patented by large corporations.

I would really like to see a proper cost/benefit study done regarding our drug policy which gets beyond the 'one reefer always leads to crack cocaine addiction' argument. By the way, what's wrong with having a bunch of addicts buying well-taxed drugs from the state to support their habits? They probably would not be any worse than the alcoholics and pillcoholics with whom we routinely associate (knowingly or not) during our day to day lives.
