Inman and Weber (1986) “Risk-benefit judgements are complex…Irresponsible reporting by the lay press frequently leads to political pressure to restrict or ban drugs…The continued use of many valuable drugs must depend on the ability of the monitoring and regulatory agency to withstand criticism. Their policy on the whole is to warn about dangers rather than ban drugs because of them.” Inman, W.H.W. and Weber, J.C.P, 1986, The United Kingdom. In Inman, W.H.W.
