Your general term of legalisation is a foolish one perhaps, you have not really furnished us with your own facts and summary, you seem to post links and dispute known facts....I take it that you smoke, not a problem. Just be informed, oh, dont take it too much to heart, it will need all the help it can get.

 

What "known facts" have i disputed?

As if any one with half a brain? is going to believe any thing that is posted about drugs by this idiot Deek Jackson on U-tube. If he told me the sun was going to rise every morning I would go out and look for my self. There is no way I would take his word for it But there again he may only have half of a brain after all the bruk he seems to be on

You are the exact reason this planet should be destroyed. Simple, narrow-minded people with great prospects as a slave.

Irrelevant of whether you think he's a "knob".

Its the subject matter which you should be commenting on.

 

Check out his website http://www.fknnews.com

 

Your a moron if you don't get it!!!

 

Do some research and find out if Deek was lying. Whats wrong with putting his video on Youtube. How else would his message get to the masses.

Here is a list of what is in your quality controlled tobacco product.

Indeed. Just imagine what else it would contain if people were adding oily rags, random garden waste, old sofa stuffing, etc. You've completely missed the point. Nobody is suggesting that tobacco is a safe and wholesome product.

 

BTW, I've replaced the list with a link because we don't need it all listing again here when there's already a site with the info.

 

Also, can I remind folks to restrict the personal comments and bickering to private messages.

What qualifications does Deek have??

 

And does he support rudeness??

 

And (oops 2 ands) How does it help?

 

What qualifications does he need? Facts are facts. Research is research. You don't like him because what he says scares you as its not what the dirty scum in the home office are pedaling.

 

Rudeness is ignoring the facts.

 

Our government is lying as usual and you are buying it. Our prisons would be free of non-violent offenders who have been raped by the corrupt system which is UK law.

“government is lying†(O my god quick tell the world nobody figured that out until you came along! )Whats new about that. There is no government in the world that isn’t lying about something. It’s just our own government is leading the charge. I mean to say most of them have admitted to using drugs how else have they come up with one silly idea after another. Rember the “take them to the auto bank and get on the spot fines paidâ€. But hay they have no money they have spent it all on there latest fix. Or pissed it up the wall

Drugs are a scourge on our society, or indeed any society, but prohibition hasn’t exactly been a resounding success. There are many reasons why prohibition has failed spectacularly, most of which have been addressed throughout the pages of this very thread.

 

Once again, :roll:, here are just some of the reasons why I think all drugs should be legalised.

 

Okay, let’s start by looking at the social situation and the problems within our society. Part of the problem begins with education and mixed messages being sent out to our children in the first instance, e.g. “All drugs are bad, but some drugs are less bad than othersâ€. “Do as I say, but not as I doâ€. “Tak a drink by all means, bit byde du clear o’ ony o yun idder helleryâ€, “Is du wantin’ a fagâ€, etc.

 

 

We should note that many drugs, indeed potentially dangerous drugs, are already legal and for the sake of argument I will not make any more distinctions between alcohol, nicotine, cannabis, heroin, etc.

 

As children grow older they are faced with peer pressure mixed with an ample dosage of teenage bravado and rebelliousness. The “just say no†message doesn’t seem to wash, and the legal or illegal status of substances doesn’t prove to be much of a deterrent. This is where facts become more important than policies. If you want to earn respect from youth and hopefully engage them in meaningful dialogue, then telling the truth is a good place to start.

 

Then there is the criminal element; once an individual has set off down the wrong path, it can be difficult to communicate or seek help without being demonized, while the real criminals at the top of the drug chain are quite happy to flood the market with impure substances for the sake of a quick buck (or millions depending how far up the chain you look). Providing sound information, and legalising drugs will not only cut out the criminalisation of a large percentage of the population who are basically more of a risk to themselves than society, but it will cut out the real criminals who are feeding the market.

 

Legalisation cannot come without control and I am by no means suggesting a free for all party. Informed choices are fuelled by a sound basis of education, and concealing the facts only serves to inflame the problem.

 

Many people use drugs recreationally and otherwise lead a relatively normal life, with the exception that they may have to move in circles they would rather not be involved with in order to procure said substances--which in turn has it’s downside with the potential for impure products (health risk) or unnecessary involvement with the law.

 

Legal or illegal, mankind will always have--and has always had--an inquisitive nature and although many may choose not to experiment, many will. It’s better they experiment with, or use, substances which have passed quality control inspection and are provided with all the necessary information regarding dosage, potential side effects, etc.

 

Any revenue gained from such legislation should be wisely spent on education and where necessary rehabilitation and counselling, with, I’m sure, some left over to line the government coffers.

 

I am by no means saying that drugs are harmless, but I believe prohibition to be more harmful to society.

 

 

DOH! "Dosage" not "doseage"

Well if you know they're lying, why do you believe them when it comes to drugs?

 

I have had my own opinion on drugs since I was at school over 30 years ago. I would have banned them all then and I would ban them all now. As for what the government say they can get stuffed

Guy Fox was the only on who ever went into parliament with any honest intentions. He just wanted to blow the lot up full stop
