Another little tidbit is that our wonderful government has added ephedra to the growing list of banned drugs.
Sooner or later we are going to figure out that prohibition does not work. It didn’t work with alcohol, it won’t work with other drugs either. All it does is increase crime, both organised and “unorganised”, and create a huge black market for them.
The best case scenario for us would be to repeal most of the current drug laws and pardon all of the non-violent drug offenders currently in prison. Not going to happen, but it would certainly fix all sorts of problems, not to mention save us all a shitload of tax money to boot.
