"The war on drugs cannot work because it flies in the face of one of the most cherished values of contemporary capitalism - the ethic to consume. In a society that thrives on the cultivation of new needs and desires, and recognises no barriers to the quest for personal gratification, drugs that offer instant sensation and pleasure have an almost irresistible appeal - for users and suppliers alike. If, as Margaret Thatcher told us, 'there is no alternative' to the market, then the demand for drugs will find its supply."
