Just because

Given the insipid nature of todays youth and the emptiness of their vessels the proliferation of 'edgy' and 'clever' from 4chan was expected. So in a very real way moot is a man of the year. Good on him.

Tax away

Must admit I wholeheartedly agree with Anonymous Coward the BBC is shambolic in the integrity of its news reporting.

Abigsmurf - Alcohol and cigarettes are heavily taxed, you dont see Mr Kensitas standing on a street corner peddling bags of baccy though do you ? Mass manufacture and transit for what is essentially raw crops (for the organics) and tank production (as opposed to bath tub) of chemicals (LSD, Ectasy etc) would eliminate overheads.

Roughly very roughly, Wheat was £18 a bushel (60lbs) given the different growing conditions and requirements (shoulda used tomatoes as an example :D) we shall double the price for commericially grown marijuana and add a little to make that £40 for 60lbs. Current street price is £10 for a 1/8th of an ounce, 16 ounces in a pound times 60, comes to £76,800.

Thats a hell of a markup the dealers and distributors are making. Im pretty sure that could be undercut whilst the regions that these plants grow naturally in tend to be third world countries and would be happy for the income.

Decriminilation

As BatCat states open and truthful education policies would actually put people off drug useage.

And yes Glaxo do carry Uzis. Mercenary companies frequently work for and with drug companies due to the nature of their business in unstable regions.

Pink Floyd frontman backs McKinnon musical protest

Trolls got the first three posts.

McKinnon did commit a crime and it was ostensibly a crime on american soil. However given his condition the Americans should be forgoing the charges for access to his talents. Obviously McKinnon should be under house arrest etc.
