I don’t agree with everything he says but overall this is brilliant for anyone interested in the issue of drug use and prohibition, and particularly the varying legal and media responses to drugs. What I find a little uneven is his quasi-prohibitionism regarding alcohol while being much more open minded about illegal drugs.
Part of the problem I think is that he thinks of drugs as essential drivers rather than as operating in a dynamic relationship with the user. Also, he seems to think of drug use as independent of social conditions; the world is not what it was a few decades ago and it stands to reason then that this would be reflected in drug use patterns.
But overall, the coverage of how policy tramples over evidence is great.
