I was quite surprised at the swiss result, given that they also voted to legalise prescription of pharmaceutical grade heroin for addicts who have had no success getting clean, or with methadone programs/buprenorphine.
I don't hold out much hope short term here in the UK, they did drop the green down from class B (our legal system has class A at the most severe end of the scale, containing coke, heroin, and ludicrously, most psychedelics, with class C at the bottom end of the scale, containing most benzodiazepines, some opioids, a few other bits and pieces)
Our home secretary Jacqui 'jackboots' Smith recently went directly against the panel of scientific and medical advisers on harm caused by social use of drugs, and wants it made class B again.
Why, oh why is there never a suicidal taliban fruitcake when you need one, WHERE you need one...
That said, if she were killed, we still wouldn't have rid of her, hell would s#*$ her straight back out again.
