Quote of the day...

Quote of the day...  From Josh Bloom, writing at Science 2.0:
The "war on drugs" has been a dismal failure by any measure. Turning cancer patients and others with severe pain into collateral damage in this un-winnable war is inhuman.
I have only suffered from serious pain a couple of times in my life.  On both those occasions, luckily for me, I was easily able to obtain powerful opioid painkillers.   That may not be true, should I need them again – and I, for one, am not looking forward to suffering because of that.

There are many reasons to end the war on drugs, and this is but one of them...
