Let's hope this does not turn into a 1000 post plus arguement...

If it does, we have plenty to copy & paste without going anywhere near wikipedia.

I agree - the poll wording is too simplistic.

When taken literally, it would prevent morphine being used by sufferers of terminal cancer - I refrain from voting.

Nothing is ever so 'black or white' - the 'shades of grey' have been ignored.

I used the wording used in the other thread.

Which asked the question 'legalise illegal drugs?'.

This poll asks the same question raised there.

WHY? Is morphine legal now or summat?

Legal for some purposes and illegal for others.

Incidentally codeine is illegal in some countries.

Your argument doesn't hold water Margaret, if its on script its legal, if it isn't its illegal end of story

Morphine is prescribed for cancer sufferers so it is not illegal for them to use it.

Voted - NO

Needs another option.

Should we re look at the current classification of drugs.

No it doesn't as Rindi has said, you pal started the thread asking should drugs be legalised, the answer seems to be no end of story

It was the exact same wording used in the other thread.

Should we 'legalise illegal drugs?'.

All that's required to that question is a simple yes, or no.

I hope they do legalise Cannabis.
Perhaps it will stop all these "farms" that are uncovered when the police raid certain houses and find the occupier has turned it into a Tax Free little earner for themselves.

One of these was found in Wigan when the grower set fire to his house and his neighbours houses.
