Economist Poll

An interesting online poll at The Economist. The poll is Should drugs like cocaine and heroin be legalised? You vote on a seven-point scale from definitely not to definitely, and you vote by country. You can see a color-coded world map of voting results and check the results of voting within specific countries.

Of course, as an online poll, it’s not at all scientific, but it’s still interesting. Go over and add your vote.

Never thought of that... Nevermind then. Can't have our prison industrial complex eating in soup lines.

Drug felonies are important voter suppression tools.

Very sneaky.

It's a criminalization of philosophy, not drugs per se.

Everyone in the nation is encouraged to take mind altering pharmaceuticals, every 10 minutes on TV.
