Drugs debate is important

LETTER

Re: All entitled to our opinion, August 7 letter.

If my reasoned argument with Clive Bibby were motivated by competitive point-scoring, then no doubt my cage would have been well and truly rattled. My motive, however, is simply a desire to encourage people to base their views on evidence. I took issue with Mr Bibby because I think the issue of illegal drugs deserves more serious discussion than it has been given so far.
