"No Smoking" - Let's take drugs instead!

The Daily Mail today reports that in spite of it having been made illegal, mephedrone or "Meow Meow" is still the "drug of choice" for the younger generation.

I just wonder if this increase in drug taking has any connection with the smoking ban. You can no longer smoke in Pubs or Nightclubs and will get thrown out if you do so. But when was someone last thrown out for taking drugs? Its unlikely anyone would notice and even if they did, would they say anything?

I don't smoke, but I still think that the non-smoking fanatics have done far more harm than good, increased drug taking being yet one more of the unexpected consequences of the ban.
