"Debating 'drugs' is futile because that term covers so many things. I've talked about recreational drugs; and the case for legalisation is pretty obvious. But talking about cocaine is a more interesting debate; that covers chewing coca leaves all the way to injecting crack. Opium/Heroin also. Then you're talking about South America and Afghanistan etc. But the fact remains - prohibition has caused far more damage than the drugs ever did, we need to talk about alternatives."
