The left’s obsession with legalising a killer drug

At his Hilarious Pessimist blog, Dalrymple writes of a difference in the way a crime was reported by the Guardian versus the Daily Mail:

Simelane had a long history (long, that is for his age) of disordered, aggressive and even violent behaviour. As far as it is possible to tell from the reports in the newspapers, his mental state fluctuated considerably. The Daily Mail report mentioned that he had been smoking cannabis before he killed his victim, which would explain that fluctuation; the Guardian did not mention this.
