"It's crazy that alcohol and nicotine can be bought everywhere, even though these substances are much more destructive than most of the drugs still under tight control by the federal government."

Agreed, totally.

Whether "drugs" should be freely available is probably something of an open question, best answered by solid research. Regulated access is the way to go, probably, and as you say; except of course the devil's in the details of what kind of regulations we're talking about here, both in general and in respect of specific individual drugs.

But regardless, what is clearly insupportable is our double standards as far as those other "drugs" on one hand, and alcohol on the other.
