Back to the reasons for it's illegality... Fear and Government. That's all there is to it. No one that creates this sort of legislation ANYWHERE has actually tried the substance. The war on drugs will likely be laughed at by generations to come much like we laugh at prohibition. Or they might look back to now and think we're a nation of caffiene and sugar addicts. Maybe drug legislation will go further? ( i know, much less likely) Anyways, governments have ALWAYS been afraid of an untrollable public. This is why religion used to be forced and substances are often avoided or allowed for reasons of having a more easily controlled and swayed public.
