It seems to me that the realistic net effect of your recommendation is that people would be allowed to whatever they want with drugs regardless of whether it is in moderation, whether they know what they're doing, or whether they harm others.
Moderation being you are still sufficiently in control to know whats going on - to be aware that you are not a nuisance, and still able to make it back home on your own without any trouble.
Once you feel you are not going to be in sufficient control, you stop doing whatever it is. I don't know about others, but when I drink, and am drinking alot with my buddies, I know when the next drink will tip me over and I stop before the next drink.
Works fine for me. 8)
That doesn't actually answer the question. He said that it should only be allowed in moderation, which implies that it should not be allowed otherwise, and I'm pointing out that this is an impossible rule to enforce. You may have your own personal self-judgement about whether you do it in moderation, but that is not an enforceable rule either; that's just personal judgement.
