Recommendation 3 from ‘The Telegraph’

Article Name:When class A drugs become cheaper than the average pint, criminalisation has failed

By: Carola Binney

For every £3 pint of beer, around £1 goes to the Government and helps fund heathcare, education and infrastructure. For every £3 ecstasy tablet, £3 goes to criminals and helps fund organised crime.


This is an interesting article because it proposes such a solution to a particular problem that majority people would disagree with it. The article talks about how drug sale should be legalized, the way alcohol sale is, and how this would help curb the problem of drug use. Read the article, mull over it and see whether you agree with the author or not.
