The drug bans don’t work…

… they just make you worse. Mere days after the UK government – against the recommendation of its scientific advisors – banned mephedrone in a glorious knee-jerk election-season appeal to the hand-wringing floating voters of the chattering classes, the next borderline-legal designer recreational pharmaceutical is being pushed into the spotlight by the relentless twinned forces of global economics and the human urge to get high and have fun.

Sound and fury, singifying nothing. I guess you’re never too old for Whack-a-Mole.
