New Drug Falacy

Gordon Brown has publicly backed Johnson’s decision to sack the head of the Council on Drug Misuse claiming that  the latter’s comments gave the impression the Government was sending “mixed messages” about drugs. In fact, the main problem is that the PM has been giving completely idiotic messages on drugs. The Dear Leader has frequently claimed that cannabis being ‘lethal’ – a farcical statement on the level of his claims to have personally saved the world economically and the planet physically. Prof Beddington, the country’s top science adviser, has warned that leading academics will be discouraged from working with the government if they fear being reprimanded or sacked for expressing their views. He said the evidence was “absolutely clear cut” and that all drugs, including alcohol and tobacco, should be ranked by a ‘harm’ index. In the international index, alcohol comes fifth behind cocaine, heroin, barbiturates, and methadone.
