Legalize cannabis and decriminalize drugs


The leader of Liberal Alliance proposed during a podcast that we should legalize drugs and allow pharmacies to sell cocaine and amphetamines. However, not right now. First, we need to rethink social policy and stop punishing people suffering from addiction. 

  • An addiction consultant finds the proposal of legalizing cocaine problematic because “cocaine gives a huge dopamine boost to the brain, which gives increased self-confidence, more energy, and more resistance to effort. Being in that state is hugely attractive to some people. The problem is that when you use cocaine, the intoxication wears off quickly, and you drop below the starting point. And then you might quite quickly feel like going for one more trip and one more trip.
