Time to RELEASE us from idiotic drug laws

Good campaign for drug law sanity has been launched in the U.K. by RELEASE, an organization that specializes in drug laws and defending the rights of drug users. This campaign, including the posting of adverts on billboards and city buses, is directed at shifting the debate about drugs away from punishment toward decriminalization. The quality of media coverage this campaign is receiving demonstrates that society is increasingly open to thoughtful rethinking of current prohibitionist drug policy.

Efforts are ongoing in virtually all developed and semi-developed countries to revamp drug laws. Portugal is leading the way with its decriminalization of personal possession for all drugs in 2001 (see recent report at CATO Institute by Glenn Greenwald).

Okie dokie, now do what ya gotta do, and don’t forget to “be nice!”

I am starting to believe that I may see a repeal of drug prohibition in my life time. One can only hope. Keep up the great posts!

That would be nice Khris. There are a lot of crooked people making a fortune off prohibition though. I think a start could be if the tobacco giants got it into their heads that marijuana could be the new PC smoking product. It also wouldn’t hurt if some corrupt bastards would start salivating at the potential tax income.

Opiated… I tried you at gmail with no luck. Can I get entries 5 and 6 removed or at least get the name “otto” off of them? The posts are at: https://opiated.wordpress.com/2006/02/14/why-be-a-piller-of-the-community/ I am really worried. I don’t have much but I can pay to remove them if it would help. Please let me know something if you can. Thanks.
