Unintended consequences

This is what really gets me about the war on some drugs. They always claim it's for the children and how's that working out? Maybe they got kids to stop smoking pot. So what do they do instead? Take pharmas and worse, like drugs that nobody, including the health providers, can identify. Kids are coming in to the ER's overdosing on this stuff and the doctors don't know what it is or how to treat it.

The lesson of course, is whether it's booze, pills or a plant, kids are going to experiment with getting high. So I ask you, were we better off as a society when kids were experimenting with an unprocessed natural plant that has never caused a death, or now, when they're popping lethal chemicals so new they barely have a name?
