If there was a way that the government could:
- Reduce government debt levels,
- Cut income taxes,
- Destroy the Green party and eat up sections of Labour support.
Would it want to do it? I suspect so.
As a result, why aren’t they legalising and taxing drugs?
Note: None of these provide particularly good reasons for legalisation in my book – I am more pro-legalisation on choice grounds. However, better to do the right thing for the wrong reason then keep doing the wrong thing right!
