To find out, I asked BertiMC -- a rapper from Salamanca -- what he thought and his answer was simply, "It's the fashion." And he's right. A fatal fashion started by a guy named Dj Screw, who died of an overdose of codeine mixed with other drugs, which seems to have started a trend, a kind of cult, if you will, within this musical genre.

All governments in the globe are about to tackle a very delicate problem, especially after the absolute and resounding failure of the war on drugs they declared a good few years ago. That war, as we have explained a number of times, has only achieved an increase of violence, the criminalization of consumers, hundreds of thousands of deaths for no reason and a brutal economic expense that has proven useless.

A recent study is trying to push the UK to follow in some USA States’ steps and allow the retail selling of cannabis to adults in authorized establishments. This would generate the annual amount of a billion pounds in taxes. But not only that, it would also reduce significantly the damage to both users and general society, according to the same study, the most detailed report to date on drug liberalization in the UK.

As Mr Dynamite, aka James Brown used to sing, “This is a man’s world”. In most institutional, artistic and activist spheres, direction is still reserved to men. Even the ones supposed to be the most horizontal and most focused on rights and liberties.
