It makes clinical and political sense to decriminalise all drugs


Northwestdoc | Locum GP28 Jul 2018 8:49pm Prison does not fit any part of my argument. There are plenty of laws you can break in this country and never go to prison. You confuse illegal with prison. I’ve worked extensively in both prisons and community drug services myself. Prison certainly isn’t the answer but legalising a harmful mind screwing drug and giving the police an excuse to do nothing about it isn’t a good idea, unless you like a puff yourself.
