Alcohol is ranked much more harmful than the CLass A drug ecstasy in a controversial new classification system proposed by a team of leading scientists. The study was published today in The Lancet medial journal. The authors propose that drugs should be classified by the amount of harm they do, rather than the sharp A, B, and C divisions in the UK Misuse of Drugs Act. The say the basis of the Act is ill-defined, opaque, and seemingly arbitrary and overestimates the risks of ecstasy, which kills around tek people annually of the half a million people who use it every weekend, while neglecting those of alcohol, a legal substance which kills more than 300 annually by poisoning, road accident, cirrhosis, and other diseases. Do you feel alcohol is more dangerous then class A drugs such as ectasy?
