The Law is an Ass

So, a study has concluded that the drug laws in this country are "driven by moral panic" and hopelessly in a need of an overhaul.

Yes, I find myself rather agreeing there. I am very much of the "criminalising it just makes it more dangerous and besides which in moderation they're quite fun" school of thought.

It is, however, perhaps unsurprising that the Home Office are treating a report on the subject by the Royal Society of Arts rather less seriously than they otherwise might.

Odd that.
