I am, amongst my acquaintances, one of the few non-users of recreational drugs who fully supports legalization. I suppose this can be taken several ways. One is to say that I am non-biased, i.e. my support of legalization derives not from personal interest but from rational consideration. A second way to look at it is that I have no first-hand knowledge of drugs and therefore should not comment. To this my response would be: how many supporters of criminalization have first-hand knowledge of drugs?

In any case, this leads to interesting debates.
