The evidence that the prohibition of drugs has been a failure is almost overwhelming; for those interested I'll reproduce some arguments in further posts, but right now I'm just going to assume most of you - like me - know the facts and know that legalization of drugs is the way forward. A group of advisors to the UN Council have organised this petition; for a complete and un-biased study of drug usage throughout the world. The "un-biased" is key, as many studies are denied funding or simply ignored if they do not echo the current anti-drug statement; that is, the governments of this world do not want the school of thought that "hey, drugs may not actually be as bad for you as you might think..." to become widespread. I for one, on a ground level, support legalization simply for personal freedom. I want to enjoy the pleasures and experiences of drugs - I do frequently anyway - without having to be criminalised for something that does no harm to others.
