    1. Indeed, I missed that one. I didn't read to much into the article as I know Peter and am aware of what happened.

  3. Peter is obviously having a terrible time dealing with the death of his son. However i'm not surprised that he died after taking a HUGE overdose of 15 benzofury pills. 'No wonder', springs to mind. Whilst legal highs aren't necessarily safe, they usually don't kill if used 'sensibly'.

    Regardless, if his son had stuck to Cannabis he would probably still been here today, since Cannabis is so safe that it's almost impossible to overdose. No wonder people are calling for it to be legalised.

    BTW, i'm not wanting to come across as pro-drugs here, just trying to make sense of this headline and spread awareness. I agree that some sentences may seem too low, but prohibition isn't working, and therefore surely we need to look at the possability of legalising safer alternatives to the more dangerous drugs-or at least provide drug users with sensible advice so that they never take such a deadly HUGE dose like that again.

    Regards.
