Whats the ARRSE view on illegal drugs? On the one hand Id expect a strong, authoritarian, anti-drugs position damn the junkies and the horse they rode in on. On the other hand, many senior coppers and other authority figures now take a more finessed position on drugs, and some ARRSE members are (broadly) libertarian anarchists so may favour personal choice and decriminalisation. Plus the killing of Rhys Jones in Liverpool has again brought the subject into focus. My position is that I loath drugs culture and the gangsters who supply them. While they remain illegal I support strong police action against both groups. But Id like to see a major UK political party detach itself from the ludicrous US war on drugs, face-down the Daily Mail editorials and take a more rational line. I broadly agree with the quoted article.
