Another triumph for the forces of darkness

Back when the (Labour) government sacked its drugs advisor David Nutt for doing his job and telling the truth, I wrote that history was on his side.

It still is, but the new right-wing coalition is clearly determined to outdo Labour in its contempt for matters of evidence and truth and its eagerness to pander to tabloid-driven hysteria.

Note the link that points out how the government's creation of drugs policy based simply on the suspicion that someone, somewhere might be obtaining enjoyment from something it doesn't understand led to a rise in the number of deaths from cocaine use.
