Drugs

Of all the topics covered in all of the websites that I work on, nothing seems to upset people quite as much as the issue of recreational drugs. I receive a lot of e-mails related to this section, split roughly between those who agree with me and those who would have me imprisoned for my beliefs.

I would love to spend more time on this subject but I'm a busy guy and I simply can't do all the research that I'd like to. 

Please: Before you email me ranting about the evils of drugs, make sure you understand the following:

I DO NOT advocate any form of drug abuse.
I DO believe that drug abuse is a problem.
I DO believe that we should be doing more to discourage drug use amongst young people, and to help all people with drug abuse problems.

I ALSO believe that any positive applications for recreational drugs need to be acknowledged. To ignore or dismiss them is to deny the process of logic.
