  • Rich of Observationz, in reply to Josh Helpful,

    There's still a big hypocritical gap, even amongst educated professionals. It's ok to have paracetamol (quite risky, high incidence of accident and suicide deaths, limited treatment, low therapeutic index) sold in supermarkets to deal with a hangover, but not MDMA, which is of at least comparable risk, because it's just there to make life more amusing. (One solution to this is to medicalise human mood and personality such that a 'medicine' is needed to 'cure' them).
