Dangerous Drugs

THIS just in from the "it makes too much sense to ever happen" department.

The British government is to be "urged to consider" (I have no idea what the hell that means) a plan which will classify drugs based on the harm that they actually do to the people that use them. This is astoundingly logical, which pretty much guarantees nothing will ever come of it.

And here they are, in order.

  1. Heroin
  2. Cocaine
  3. Barbiturates
  4. Street methadone
  5. Alcohol
  6. Ketamine
  7. Benzodiazepine
  8. Amphetamines
  9. Tobacco
  10. Buprenorphine
  11. Cannabis
  12. Solvents
  13. 4-MTA
  14. LSD
  15. Methylphenidate
  16. Anabolic steroids
  17. GHB
  18. Ecstasy
  19. Alkyl nitrates
  20. Khat
