Excerpt: In short, a regulatory framework that merely addresses what activities are permitted does not serve any purpose. Why, even a complete ban (which would meet the test of clarity) would mean nothing, if the State does not have the means, or expertise, to enforce the ban.

Poorly researched article…. Only a proposal has been put forward about considering a ban…. But this fellow is parroting the same line and not bringing ahis insights on whether such a ban is possible or warranted….. I fact, it is these quack journalists who should be banned from writing such half baked articles.
