According to the Dailymail.co.uk:
Ecstasy, LSD and cannabis are less dangerous than alcohol and cigarettes, the Government’s chief drug adviser claims today.
Professor David Nutt is calling for a new ‘index of harm’ to warn the public about the relative dangers of various substances.
He says alcohol should rank fifth, behind only cocaine, heroin, barbiturates and methadone, while tobacco should rank ninth, ahead of cannabis, LSD and Ecstasy.
Professor Nutt? Really?
These are some heavy claims to be sure. D.A.R.E. to compare: A beer with lunch = a little morale booster in the middle of the day. LSD with lunch = a whimsical ten-hour journey with the white rabbit into the center of consciousness and wonder, with a slight probability of unimaginable terror that feels like it lasts for a thousand eternities.
Of course, I’m just speculating. Any lunchtime LSD poppers out there that will back up the fine Professor Nutt?
