From Professor David Nutt:
If your policy is informed by an underlying moral imperative, be open about what that is, and don't try to disguise it with a veneer of pseudo-science.
Evidence based policy,
Professor David Nutt
Hear, hear. One of the most offensive aspects of this whole sorry affair has been discovering that neither Alan Johnson nor Gordon Brown (nor their shadow counterparts) see any hypocrisy in taking a moral high stand on drugs by lying through the teeth about their relative dangers. Nor has it apparently occurred to them that by appearing in such a deceitful light, they have castrated their own moral message, and might as well come clean about their motives.
"If your policy is informed by an underlying moral degeneracy be open about what that is, and don't try to disguise it with a veneer of pseudo-science."Fixed
