Cannabis Reclassification

BBC NEWS | Politics | Peers vote for cannabis upgrade
Peers have voted to support government plans to upgrade cannabis from a class C to a class B drug.
Haaaaaaaaahahahaha I wonder what it would be like to have a fucking competent government. They organise all these Select Commitees and Advisory Boards and then completely ignore the advice of the scientists and experts. Since they classified it C use has gone down, and making it B again will only serve to confuse people about the relative dangers of drugs. It is well known and widely accepted that Cannabis is far closer to Alcohol and Tobacco than Ecstacy, Cocaine etc in terms of its dangers. If you look at graphs of the dangers of drugs and compare it to their classification, it's almost a complete inverse trend. Entirely fucking wrong.

It's also well known that criminalising drugs does hardly anything to stop its use. How many people want to take drugs but don't because of the law? The kind of people that take drugs don't give a shit about the law anyway.

Anyway I will continue to happily smoke cannabis just like I did when it was class B before 2004, so kiss my ass really.
