Research shows prohibition doesn't work

Here's a scientific evaluation of the impacts of drug decriminalisation vs prohibition over a decade in the Czech Republic. It contradicts all those prohibitionists who say 'going soft on drugs' will lead to more users, greater availability, negative social and economic impacts etc etc. Anyone asserting those furphies is either a fool, a liar or both (or someone who gains from prohibition!). They have no evidence for their empty claims.

When will Australia move into the 21st century? It's such a backward colony.

Bouquets to the Czech government, where even the conservatives listen to evidence.

Forty-six million Americans aren't as smart as they think. According to the Centers for Disease Control, that's the number of Americans - including 20% of teenagers - who still smoked in 2010. Also, more than 50% of American children ages 3-11 were exposed to secondhand smoke and 98% of children who lived with a smoker had measurable tobacco toxins in their body. Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in the U.S., yet it's estimated smoking kills 1,000 Americans a day.
The former New York mayor extolled McCain, with whom he shares a close friendship, and termed him an 'American hero'. "John McCain is the most qualified candidate to be the next commander in chief of the United States," he said. Giuliani had earlier said that McCain would be his choice for president, if he was not a running contender himself. Ostensibly referring to Romney, who has often criticized him for shifting positions, he also stated, "If I'd endorsed anyone else, you would say I was flip flopping."
