Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not sure rationality comes into it, even if it where possible to devise a rational schema that everyone agred to.  (Is that not what the current classification scheme attempts to do in any case?).  

If the market is absolutely flooded with cheap E and "everybody is doing it" is there any further point in criminalising it and a huge slice of the population?  It might be preferable to have it issued in quality controlled dosages through pharmacies with all the relevant warnings etc.  It could then be used by adults in private.  (Public drunkenness is still an offense).

However there really needs to be a global response, otherwise those countries (and internet sites) with liberal jurisdictions will become suppliers to those who don't, and there will be "competitive" pressures for everyone to match the most liberal regime or lose out on the "business".
