    They are liberal nanny-statism, and nothing more.

    The "staff" would need to just sort of blend into the woodwork, unless needed, otherwise they'd cause inhibition and paranoia.
    I think your onto something there, though seeing people blend into the woodwork could be highly disconcerting

    I was thinking more convinience then anything else. In that its easyer to buy something then walk around a muddy field looking for it. Though i think the safety element could pull people in when it comes to other drugs. Personally speaking i tend feel uneasy taking pills etc. as i can never know for sure whats in them [not that it stops me] If an option was availiable were i had better idea of what was in then ild certainly go for it

    My point being that the prohibition of something can make it more dangerous and fuel organised crime. See

    That was a play on words from:

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/More-Guns-Less-Crime-Understanding/dp/0226493636]Amazon.com: More Guns, Less Crime: Understanding Crime and Gun Control Laws (Studies in Law and Economics) (9780226493633): John R. Lott Jr.: Books[/ame]

    Don't latch onto one word when the point was an entire title.

    Where is your equivalent?

    Alcohol =/= "drugs" just as pistol =/= 50cal belt-fed machine gun.
