THE UK has told the Conservatives that they could halve drug use at a stroke by going away and never coming back.
Experts believe that, after an initial euphoric surge, use of cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine would be reduced by a minimum of 50 per cent as Britons no longer felt the need to blot out reality.
Pharmacologist Dr Helen Archer said: “And it’s not just the illegal ones.
“Alcohol use would drop precipitously, Viagra prescriptions would fall as Remainers found themselves joyously able to achieve erections again, and you need fewer sleeping pills when you’re not living in a nightmare.
“People would spend more time outside in the fresh air, but now they will be savouring the wonderful British countryside instead of looking for mind-altering fungi.”
Home secretary Amber Rudd said: “We want you fully sober so you can feel every little bit of what we’re doing to you. It’s not as satisfying with anaesthetic.”
