Legalise and tax.

I know it's a long article but it's well worth a read, even if Wired isn't exactly a medical journal.      Some highlights:    

Definitely sounds like a potential game changer. Even more so than boiling taps

Possible I guess. No idea what the MSM looks like in the Philippines but doubtless they have their tabloids calling for blood over this issue, which will be entrenching his support.

 

Good point.

I was taking the piss ;)

The article mentions that the MSM are being pretty quiet about this issue though, which I find a bit odd - not in any nefarious way or anything, just in the sense that you'd think this would be all over the front pages. 4000 executions..? Is that not a big deal these days?

:lol:

 

Gloom has made a number of good points about my views on the MSM and I'm taking some of it into consideration presently - I do respect his view on it and am educating myself further. I only made that comment because Alex basically asked me to :D

The war on drugs will never be won. The only solution is legalise/educate/regulate. Just how they did in Portugal, which is evidence this policy works. The real war is with the silly twats who want to declare war on drugs - and it will eventually be won. Just as prohibition was defeated in the US. I'm just amazed it's taking so long - think of all the tax revenues it would generate. No brainier basically.

 

I think we have a pretty in depth thread covering this subject already. No question Duterte is a massive cath word though.
