Drugs and crime

Yesterday I had one of the most animated group discussions in some time when discussing the relative effectiveness of crime strategies which focused on prevention versus tougher deterrants in the shape of stiffer prison sentences.  It seems incredibly difficult to square a circle which desires more liberalisation in the shape of personal freedoms versus an approach to solving crime that doesn’t come straight out of a Daily Mail editorial page.

Today there is an agency report suggesting that certian class A drugs be downgraded.  More food for thought when discussing civil liberties, law and order, etc.

See the Big Question as a starting off point.
