Drugs? All Bad, full stop
The Telegraph has a story saying that Government advisers are recommending that ecstasy should be downgraded from a Class A to a Class B drug.
I'm very glad to read that Jacqui Smith is likely to ignore their advice.
I've seen close up the effect that drug use has. Those effects can be long lasting, slow to show their effect and can manifest themselves in so many ways, always negative.
To my mind there are no drugs that are good, none that are slightly better than others. The effects of all of them from cannabis to heroin are negative. Let's stop kidding ourselves by giving them different designations.
Drugs are all bad. Full stop.
