"One would like to be charitable and offer up the notion that British political elites have suddenly — because it is rational — discovered that the war on drugs
is illegitimate and counterproductive; but, no, the timing is too suspicious.... The sudden reasonableness of the British establishment as regards the war on drugs surely has to do with financial calculations."
Of course, it isn't just the U.K. that is seeking alternative solutions to drug problems. A group of lawmakers in Australia, for example, is also urging
the government to end the war on drugs in that country, calling it a failure that is even less likely to work in the future.
