I doubt it. Why somebody who is in the throes of a haute

testify that such scenario may lead to a total loss of control and/or
to the acceptance of worse scenarios than the mere loss of
reproductive capacity...

Mmhhh. As much as I am against prohibitionism, this sounds a little
emphatic, and likely to overestimate the number of murders, or to
underestimate the number of cocaine grams in circulation.

Any hard data in this respect?
