Should drug possession and use be legalised?


May I be forgiven for this addendum to my previous comment. I have just seen this abstract Lipids. 2004 Dec;39(12):1207-13. Increasing homicide rates and linoleic acid consumption among five Western countries, 1961-2000. Hibbeln JR1, Nieminen LR, Lands WE. The modern diet overbalanced 6 omega acids has been found to create violent behaviour. In my previous note I suggested that statins could, thinking about the bearing of plasma cholesterol on mood. Now I suggest that we should challenge the labelling of Sunflower oil in "Ingredients." It WAS sunflower oil in the seed! In the clear bottle it is potentially very dangerous as also rapeseed and corn oils. A justifiable exaggeration to make the point might be to think of so called "Sunflower oil" as sucking the vitamin E out of oneĀ“s brain?
