Repeal Day

As the ad at the end of The Onion's podcast has been telling me for a week or so, today is the anniversary of the repeal of prohibition in America. The ad has only been part effective, because while I know it was an ad for some type of alcohol, I have no idea what brand or type it is.

Anyway, prohibition was a bad idea, and seems to have inspired some of the modern prohibitions on other chemicals people choose to indulge in, which are just as effective as the prohibition on alchohol back then was.

Anyway, cheers (or kampai, as the locals say).

Hmmm I've heard a few people suggest that all drugs be made legal, and for people to make their own mistakes. I'm willing for a distinction between hard and soft drugs to be made, and for soft drugs to be completely decriminalised. Though I'm not sure how I like the idea of letting people get their hands on drugs that it's possible to easily overdose on...
