A study carried out by a team of experts led by Colin Blakemore, the chief executive of the Medical Research Council, and Professor David Nutt of the University of Bristol, who serves on the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, has proposed a new matrix that would have this effect. Instead of focusing on the penalties that possession of particular drugs should attract, this proposed template embraces the relative risks of taking them. The study assessed a list of 20 drugs, both legal and illegal, in nine categories and weighed up their physical harm, tendency to induce dependence and impact on families, communities and society. This so-called ‘rational’ ranking showed some legal substances were much riskier than those deemed most dangerous, the current Class A drugs, while others that have been demonised, notably ecstasy, are near the bottom of the table of risk.

Alcohol is high up the new scale, even though it is legal, because, through its links to violence and car accidents, it plays a role in more than half of all visits to accident and emergency departments and orthopaedic admissions. Tobacco is estimated to cause up to 40% of all hospital illness and 60% of drug-related fatalities. Following the experts’ logic, alcohol and tobacco would both be reclassified as Class B drugs.

Да, робот, но хороший же... По крайней мере, первый этап теста Тьюринга он прошел. Зато теперь он не будет употреблять тяжелые наркотеги типа "Каберне Совиньон".
