Don't Be Doped

At least the debate on drugs, and specifically on cannabis, is open at last.

The key text is The War We Never Fought, by Peter Hitchens.

Hitchens could also have written much of Labour's manifesto, and most or all of today's speech by Jeremy Corbyn to Chatham House.

More fundamentally, there cannot be a "free" market in general, but not in drugs, or prostitution, or pornography, or unrestricted alcohol, or unrestricted gambling.

That is an important part of why there must not be a "free" market in general, which is a political choice, and not a mere law of nature.
