Rank and file Scottish police want drugs legalised

Because a lot of top people make money from drugs, expect this to be given little publicity:

April 26 2006 Legalise drugs, says police chief SCOTLAND'S street cops yesterday called for drugs to be legalised.

A top police officer, Inspector Jim Duffy, says society is losing the war against drugs. He wants drugs to be legalised.

This was debated at the annual conference of the Scottish Police Federation, which represents rank and file officers.

Scotland's street cops called for drugs to be legalised.

The Scottish Police Federation believes a regulated drugs industry will take the power away from criminals.

Scotland's First Minister Joke McConnell hit out at the country's rank and file police officers after they issued their strong calls to legalise hard drugs.

In Switzerland, heroin addicts can get their prescriptions from doctors.


In one of the most dramatic success stories in modern addiction treatment, doctors in Switzerland have discovered that the provision of medically determined doses of heroin to heroin addicts significantly improves their health, lifestyle and reduces the amount of crime associated with drug use when they are permitted to leave the black market environment.The Swiss researchers concluded that:

· Both the number of criminal offenders and the number of offenses decreased by about 60% in the first six months of the program.

· Most illicit drug use, including cocaine, rapidly and markedly declined.

· The number of participants on unemployment benefits fell by more than half (from 44% to 20%).

· Participants' housing situation rapidly improved, ending homelessness among the patients.· The physical health of participants improved.

· More than half of the patients who dropped out of the program did so in order to switch to another form of treatment, including abstinence.
