It does feel that the rational voices speaking up against the war on drugs are starting to be heard. This is excellent news for all of us especially the usually minority groups that become the target of the war.

Legalise, regulate and tax is the only sensible solution to our current known crop and any future synthetic stimulants we create.

It doesn’t matter whether the government targets whiskey or cocaine; a ban forces legal businesses out of the market — and armed criminal gangs take it over. They then go to war to control the trade. But once the prohibition ends, so does the violence. (Ask yourself: Where are the violent alcohol dealers today?).
