I really object to the disgraceful way in which some ‘responsible’ bloggers have portrayed the Nutt story. I must admit to nearly dying on the ITU of the Royal Free Hospital in 2007 during a two month coma due to meningitis, but with an underlying diagnosis of alcoholism. So, some bloggers were saying yesterday that heroin is far more dangerous than alcohol; my drug of abuse is more harmful than yours. I find this objectionable, as they are all potentially fatal.
I applaud David Nutt’s work. I hope that he may go to the House of Lords, before we elect him anyway.
