Drug War Propaganda Meets Objective Reality
The Daily Mail gives us this headline,
"Remember, David Nutt does not have to face the voters
"Professor Nutt - while free to speak his mind - does not have to face voters with his deeply contentious views that ecstasy and LSD are safer than alcohol, and that cannabis laws should not have been toughened."
We've had almost a hundred years of drug war propaganda: the ignorance being peddled over this issue is astounding.
Science is not about democracy ... an apple falls from a tree under the force of gravity irrespective of any elections. To suggest otherwise is to be ignorant.
Is this really how the labour gov want to be remembered?
