In just one week – actually just four days – we’ve had two of the best drug war madness quotes of all time
The Today programme on Radio 4 is hardly to be compared with the lower reaches of the gutter press – like the Daily Mail for example – but this morning’s report about a new study went some way to bridging that gap.

This programme by the BBC was a part of that deception attempt.
Two media outlets not normally associated with presenting a complex view of the world had a go at doing just that this week – BBC 3 and The Sun!

Something interesting is happening in the USA, even the American right is starting to have a debate about drug law reform.
