Well reasoned, well argued and utterly needed, 3 Jan. 2013
It is my understanding that many will instantly dismiss this book because of its author, because some find Hitchens' style and opinions to get right up their nose. It is needed.
It is needed because, as this book plainly and honestly points out, the debate on drugs and the law in Britain has been heading in the same biased direction amongst the political masses for some time - longer than most would think, which is one of the key arguments in Hitchens' case. As someone who grows tired with the poorly reasoned arguments of the pro-drug lobby, this book is recommended as a champion of sensible thinking. In fact, there is nothing terribly new or extraordinary about the arguments in this book, just a simple clear-headed (i.e. not high) plight for the general salvation of everyday morality in modern Britain.
