Drugs exist in this world for a reason. It is not for the government to ban naturally occurring plants or their by-products. I t is true that drug abuse is harmful. But the prohibition is even more harmful. Also people have a right to make decisions for themselves regarding which drugs or medicines they take. It is no business of the government. I would take it further and do away with the monopoly of the medical profession regarding prescriptions. I think prescriptions should be abolished and people above the age of 18 should be able to medicate themselves as they see fit.
