There is no rational basis for the allowance of drugs, but there is many for their prohibition. Health above all.

People like you entirely miss the point of socialism. It's not your petty social engineering project, the goal of it is abundance of use values. That includes recreational drugs.

Why do you defend bourgeois debauchery? Drugs were created by the bourgeoisie and his mafia to deprave the working class. In the XIXth century the workers were decimated by opium, yet many romantics were depicting opium as a nice thing. You are just like them.

Even though prohibition makes drugs more hazardous to health, but whatever.

Actually, Stalin attacked Conservatives like Bukharin, Rykov, and Tomsky.

"These features take on particularly ridiculous forms when difficulties appear, when the slightest cloud makes its appearance on the horizon. If any difficulty or hitch has appeared anywhere, they fall into a panic, lest something may happen. A cockroach somewhere stirs, without having time even to cawl out of its hole, and they are already starting back in terror, and beginning to shout about a catastrophe, about the ruin of the Soviet government. We try to calm them down, we try to convince them that nothing dangerous has happened yet, that it is only a cockroach, and there is no need to be afraid, but all in vain. They continue to shout as before: 'What cockroach? That's no cockroach, it's a thousand wild beasts! It's not a cockroach, but the abyss, the ruin of the Soviet government.' And volumes of papers begin to pour in."
-Stalin


Stalin was a progressive- both Socially and Fiscally. As was further noted here.

"The art of leadership is a serious matter. One must not straggle behind a movement, nor run in front of it, lest one become in both cases separated from the masses. Whoever wants to lead and at the same time maintain his contact with the masses must fight on two fronts; against those loitering in the rear, and those speeding on ahead."
-Stalin
