A quotation to think about

I don't know why society is not willing to listen to scientists and medical people on this matter:

Drugs that are legal cause at least as much damage, if not more, than drugs that are illicit.

-- Wim Van Den Brink, a professor of psychiatry and addiction at the University of Amsterdam, on a new study in the journal Lancet, which concluded that alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine

    It is also ridiculous that marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug right up there with heroin. Totally absurd.
