"When discussing the liberalization of our drug policy it is common to hear many concede that in regards to some drugs, cannabis in particular, the UK should move towards a more permissive policy. However, many people are more reluctant to advocate an equally permissive policy for drugs like crystal meth (methamphetamine). This reluctance is ill-founded, as when one examines the history of crystal meth it becomes evident that it is a creation of the drug war, as moonshine was a creation of alcohol prohibition during the prohibition years in the United States. Controlling it will simply lead to an even stronger drug being developed." (04/26/11)
