The Scotsman denounces prohibition as a failure

This article from 2 June 2006 and published in the Scotsman opinion section ( declares the post-war prohibition of drugs to be a failure for all but the drug barons. The article suggests wresting control of the drug empire from criminals and ensuring a cleaner, safer supply of drugs. The authors concede that it would be naive to expect demand for drugs to vanish but propose that cutting the criminals out of the supply chain would reduce demand. The authors wonder if there is any other solution to the devastation wreaked on Scotland by the prohibition of drugs.
