Letters To The Editor

As a British citizen I will vote for any party brave enough to put
reality ahead of probity. I would prefer to legalize and license the
production of drugs. Why should my children be put at risk by having
to deal with the cockroaches that own the drug market?

The example of the United States and Prohibition may be compared to
Britain and the licensing of gin in the 18th century. Take the product
away from criminals and produce it under controllable quality and
distribution--the result is a better product that's even taxable.
