I think it's odd that my general opinion about drugs and the global drug trade is considered to be a view specifically about China.

North, are you not aware that there are large bodies of people ...



North, are you not aware that there are large bodies of people, backed by large bodies of research, that oppose drug prohibition worldwide on the grounds that it is neither as harmful as people say nor any government's legitimate business anyhow?



Schreiber,


There are not many subjects/replies/arguments etc. on this board that do surprise me but your reply hit me unprepared and unexpected.

For any sane person and for all but a few rogue governments drug trade is a serious crime. This is the norm in all civilized societies.

We're talking here about Opium, a dangerous drug that leads to destruction of brain cells and ultimately to death.

I've yet to see any scientist who recommends the distribution/legalization of hard drugs.

Just don't tell me that you're serious.

He's serious about legalizing drug-trade.

Satsu,

First, you'll hardly ever see scientists advocating the widespread use of anything other than better science education; as a body, scientists strive to be apolitical in their role as scie ...



Hi Schreiber,

afaik Opium on a wider scale was only consumed in China after the Brits forced it upon the nation.

If drugs do no harm then I recommend animal lovers to keep cobras as pets. Occasionally they bite but it certainly doesn't do any harm other then that the poison kills almost instantly.
