Check out my latest piece at BlogHer.com – "Drug Prohibition, Accessibility, and Addiction: This Former Addict Says Yes to Legalization":
I have done enough LSD that you might be surprised at how well I keep in touch with reality. I used to smoke pot as a matter of course every day. I gave crystal meth a shot, because I knew the chemist, and, hell, why not? I smoked cigarettes enthusiastically for twenty-one years. Once upon a time until about two-and-a-half months ago when I admitted publicly to my alcoholism and embraced sobriety, I drank so much on a regular basis that I blacked out two or three times a week and couldn't remember how I came home. So, what I am about to reveal here with regard to my thoughts on drugs, accessibility, and legalization might surprise you:
I support the legalization of all drugs, or, at the very least, the decriminalization of possession and personal use.
