The war against drugs
Apparently, there is an imminent report from an MP committee that is going to recommend the legalisation of some if not all recreational drugs.

It's estimated that each of us spends £400 a year or 1.6 billion collectively on a war that was lost many, many years ago.

Legalisation would mean that the vast amounts of money spent on weed, coke, E, H etc etc etc could be redirected to safe rooms for shooting up, helping addicts, mental health and poverty whilst boosting the economy at the same time.

The use of drugs would become far less dangerous and many lives saves.

For me it's a no brainer but I'd be interested in any counter arguments from the sages of WHO?

They may even have to get a job, Bungo.

I've thought about this too but can't see a natural progression. Smuggling fags maybe?

I would be interested to see what criminals would turn to if the profits of the illegal drug trade were massively reduced.

I suspect they would be looking hard for a new source of revenue.

Would you say that all crime bosses are just Capitalists? That's all they are?

Yes. They don't do it for love.

"The street dealers will sell cheaper to undercut the official outlets making it all pointless."

That was what I was thinking.


Cutting price cuts profit. If the return isn't big enough the it won't be worth the risk on the supply side.

Banning Spice had the effect of creating Spice zombies on the streets and a Spice crisis in the prisons, surprisingly handing production of a commodity to criminals causes chaos.
Look people want drugs, they like drugs and they take drugs. That isn't going change

Clearly not in the hands of the established capitalists?

Exactly where it ends up.

Drug dealers are self employed capitalists. May not be global capitalists, but capitalists none the less.

They deal drugs to make as much money as possible.

Clearly not in the hands of the established capitalists? Apart from those benefitting from the war against drugs of course.

Re: The war against drugs
The problem with legalisation is it gets corporatised. Corporatisation means it’s all about profits for the corporation and then the endless vested interests.


And currently drug dealers, are workers co operatives or charities, working for the good of the many.

As opposed to making vast amounts of profits, which are unlikely to see a tax return.

The problem with legalisation is it gets corporatised. Corporatisation means it’s all about profits for the corporation and then the endless vested interests. The only reason it hasn’t been so far is that in general they’ve tried to create synthetic corporatised drugs as an alternative but people just prefer doing it themselves which they prefer.
What you need are facts and truth and to give the public the guidelines and also the environment in which they can partake and what the penalties would be if they break them.
Critically children need to be properly educated.

All that said, some people have the kind of personalities that will always abuse or just be addictive so they are the people who need assistance.

Pensioners aged 90 and over being admitted to hospital over cocaine use. Bet it’s a great sensation at that age.

`Plus the sheer hypocrisy of tobacco and alcohol being legalised despite them killing more people`.


I imagine that's because vastly more people drink and smoke than are shoving shit in their veins... but you are right each to their own...

Re: The war against drugs
I was convinced by the idea of legalising all drugs by 1992. I needed to get the non evidenced based bollocks out of my head and just look at facts.

Re: The war against drugs
Have barely touched drugs apart from the odd joint as a uni student, but have always advocated their full legalisation for many of the reasons stated above.

Plus the sheer hypocrisy of tobacco and alcohol being legalised despite them killing more people.
