Except people in power still refuse to listen to logic.
The possession and use of all illegal drugs should be decriminalised, a cross-party group of peers has said.
The least harmful should be regulated and sold in licensed shops, with labels detailing risks, the group concluded.
The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Drug Policy Reform (APPG) said criminal sanctions did not combat drug addiction, and only marginalised users.
A recent call by MPs for a royal commission on drug decriminalisation was rejected by the prime minister.
Mr Cameron's official spokesman said: "The prime minister's very strong, clear view is that the approach we currently have is the right one and is working."
