Drug Policy Nonsense - Skewered

There's a fantastic, well researched blog post/article on Ministry Of Truth here which skewers the government's completely non-evidence based approach to drugs policy and the unhealthy alliance of the media and politicians who collude in this.

Towards the end there is also an analysis of the frankly astonishing claim by a parliamentary committee that the whole drugs policy framework in the UK is essentially a complete mess and unfit for purpose.

It's well worth sticking with it even though it is the longest blog post I have ever read!
