Despite decades of policing and anti-drug campaigns, the drug trade is thriving.

Sorry, I'm too lazy to post a link but several UK Senior Constables, effectively the heads of their areas, have publicly stated they won't bother small time users. I didn't think the UK, with their abstinence is best policy, would ever back down from charging drug users of all stripes.
