    This is my understanding too Joe. I have heard that England (opium introduced to China) and USAnia are the two all-time biggest drug-runners of all time. As a long time casual pot smoker it makes me madder than hell that they are the two most anti-drug nations. It is hypocritical in the extreme. They talk of harm minimisation, ie the avoidance of a few thousand deaths of consenting junkies in the West, but ignore the millions who will die violently, or from HIV, as a result of the 'war on drugs'. IMO they are just trying to keep the price up and siphon off cash from an artificially created social underbelly. Still keepin the niggers down in the good ol USofA. Jeremy
