Reader’s comment: Harmless? Never


In response to Kathy Gyngell: The true cost of legalising drugs, JohnB wrote:

Would highly recommend reading Peter Hitchens’s The War We Never Fought which is an insightful analysis of Britain’s failed experiment in drug liberalisation.

I myself used to abuse cannabis regularly when I was younger, partly due to being told by the police that it was harmless during school drugs talks in the late 1990s. The waste of money, time and potential harm to my education is hard to quantify, but I know it is immense. Fortunately I was eventually able to steer myself away from this path of self-destruction, but telling children drugs are harmless is unbelievably stupid policy.
