Former Sub Club owner Paul Crawford has said that recent drugs deaths, including the death of 17-year-old Regane MacColl in the Arches nightclub in Glasgow earlier this month, highlight the need to reform drug laws. He is calling for the Scottish Government to look at legalising drugs enabling the setting up of testing centres in nightclubs. Is he right? What do you think?

We've already got two legalised drugs, cigarettes and alcohol, and they do more harm than all the illegal drugs combined, many times over Sorry, i've forgotten the figures and don't have time to check, but I'm sure that's a very fair statement. Are they really intrinsically much more dangerous than the illegal stuff? Surely not, rather the reverse. But being legal does make them acceptable and available.
