  1. I get where you're coming from because my youngest child, she's 3 as well has autism, down here in Aberdeen the cinemas have days set aside for autistic children and those with special needs where they can make as much noise as they like and get up and wander around if they choose. I understand it might not be so easy for something as small as the Garrison to organise this though.
  2. The gov should be introducing STANDARDS for support workers so anyone in the job should be trained and qualified and consequently paid an appropriate wage which would indicate they had a genuine interest in doing the job and wernt just using it as an alternative to working in macdonalds...these people are vile, and IMO sicker than those they are meant to be caring for!
  3. Although I still visit the forum I left shetland with my family this year, we were in social housing for a time there until it was possible for us to afford something better and once we did there was no way I was going to stay brining up teenagers there. Yes Shetland for the lttle ones is a good enviroment I think, but for teenagers Ive never experianced anywhere worse. When I was growing up there were drugs around, if your mates smoked pot you hung together, the ravers and thier pills hung together and the Hardcore users on H...well you'd likely heard of one or two but you didnt really kno
  4. Why not? There are loads of conditions which require the sufferer to depend on drugs to function. very good point, I remember having a chat with my doctor once about this topic, my partner was worried about the drugs I had been prescribed as they have addictive qualities, it was pointed out to me there is a world of difference between depedance and addiction.
  5. Davie could you throw me a PM please, I have sent you one but may have got lost along the way thanks
  6. ^^ Well no s**t Sherlock, what do you think the law has been trying to do all this time? One step forwards , two steps back thats exactly how it works with current policy, the police are at a loss and know they have no chance of ever winning. I have children, I want to see them bought up in a safer enviroment. Illegal = dangerous where drugs are concerned for a multitude of different reasons... from the way they are mixed , to the supply and transportation , the alure of the dark side for our young folk, to the methods used to obtain them and the crimes created by this ..keeping it undergro
  7. Is neither young ..nor a drug taker ..nor a troll. Is however someone who has done her reasearch and a lot of it and found hard evidance to prove that it has and continues to work in other EU countries, the fact that the Swiss saw addiction figures drop by 90 percent must perk your curiosity surely?
  8. Colin I dont think OP8S is attacking anyone, I think what he's doing is pointing out that when educated they would think differently. The frustration comes from knowing something is 'fact' and then seeing people argue black is white without even bothering to self educate. Clearly for many this is a drop in subject that they moan about over a beer in the pub with thier mates , its not something they have spent any amount of time properly researching because its not something they are really that interested in. Not saying that anyone who contributes to a thread should be an expert but simp
  9. lol...commodes? or did you have something a little more dtastic in mind... fit them all with a colostomy bag?
  10. or you could just make them legal , free up the prison system of some 70 percent of its population...and spend the money on something that desperatley needs it instead...like the NHS? ...
  11. I'm at a bit of a loss here because I dont really understand how armed with the knowledge that our present system is failing everyone , drug users and non drug users alike people can still refute the need for a new look at drugs policy. So if you agree our system dosnt and wont work... If you can clearly see other countires systems DO work... If you have evidence to show you the difference it would make both social and economic to all of our lives... Why wouldnt you be screaming at the top of your lungs for change? if youre just going to harp on inanely about scum/losers/wasters som
  12. Ok well firstly , I'm a girl not a boy..well a woman actually , not that it matters I suppose. You cant compare alcohol to heroin, if after just a few pints you found you were throwing up and feeling like you were on deaths door unless you had another beer , then you could compare it. Interestingly enough if that had been the case , would you still be saying the same? boozers are all wasters? let the boozey scum suffer? You honestly believe people begin to take heroin 'just' for the buzz of it and that there is nothing psychologically deeper going on there?...who in thier right mind tak
  13. Its exceptionally sad especially when you consider the majority of drug related deaths are caused by people trying to come clean off a substance and failing . Tollerance builds very quickly with opiates, they try and stop , go through withdrawl which is horrific , they have a weak moment and start taking again thinking thier body can still cope with the amounts they were taking prior to trying to go clean , of course by then thier tollerance had fallen again and they overdose. If you think these people are enjoying thier addiction you couldnt be more wrong , people take drugs for a variety
  14. ^I have posted this elsewhere but Im going to pop it up again regardless. This short Doc his hosted by a Doctor who was part of Thatchers medical advisory team in the 1980s and directly addresses your questions bobdahog. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7384717343852310100#[/url][/code]
  15. ^Really couldn’t agree with you more OP8S, trouble is the Gov appear to feel the need to placate the ignorant Sun readers of Blighty and consequently bend to the mass hysteria/propaganda created though their lack of education on the subject. Giving people the real facts is the only way to turn things around, which is going to be difficult job in itself because our archaic laws on drugs mean so many non drug users have now have been touched by the negative aspects of substance abuse be it through a loved one dying or by being a victim of drug related crime. Of course when something touc
  16. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7384717343852310100# interesting documentary. The Swiss legalised Heroin for addicts then saw the number of addicts drop by 90 percent...
  17. Honestly they sound like Larrikin loves posher cousins with less depth and lyric writing ability , no wonder the kids like them its like eating an entier chocolate cake in one sitting.
  18. oh I forgot to add my annoying but trivial thing which is ....after spending too much time on facebook then coming here and finding no LIKE button , when there are comments I really want to LIKE
  19. In reply to the post about incomers. I am one but I couldnt agree more. Research before moving here, properly. People who come in finding fault and airing thier views openly have to understand how insulting that it? and who likes to feel as if they are being looked down on? a little bit of humble goes a long way. Of course there are issues that need addressing in all communities but tact ,discretion and a certain amount of savoir faire can usually prevent ruffled feathers. Reminds me of that Plup track " cuz everybody hates a tourist...especially one who thinks its all such a laugh "
  20. thats such a shame , we certainly wont get the specialist music that clives provided in Tesco. clives is one of my fav shops in town , will miss it if it goes, but then if its not able to make a profit whats to be done?
  21. three fold revenge is no a religion , thats as bad as stoning folk in saudi , na you will need to try harder wi me. Bein a pretty shabby Christian am only into a little revenge occaisionally , but will definately be comitted to see fair play in the long run Its not about revenge! its about knowing that any bad you do will come back to you 3 fold, so dont do it! See when things get twisted is it any wonder people get the wrong impression.
  22. You plainly have some personal issue attached to Wicca, as I do with Christianity so arguing the toss is futile. It's suffice to say there is good and bad in all we come across. I personally do believe the majority of Wiccans follow the ethical code known as the Rede which states "an it harm none, do what ye will" and the Law of Threefold Return, basically meaning anything negative you send out into the world you'll get back threefold. Unfortunatley because of the naure of religion its an open door for cranks/freaks, its easy when we've had a bad personal experiance to tarr everyone with the s
  23. ^^^^ Im sure just like in every other religion there are people who use it an as an excuse for wrong doings , I too spent several years with someone who could recite passages from the bible at the drop of a hat and claimed to be a Christian yet in this lifetime Ive still to personally come across anyone as evil.
  24. **For most Wiccans, the God and Goddess are seen as complementary polarities in the universe that balance one another out, and in this manner they have been compared to the concept of yin and yang found in Taoism. As such they are often interpreted as being "embodiments of a life-force manifest in nature". With some Wiccans believing that they are simply symbolic of these polarities, whilst others believing that the God and the Goddess are genuine beings that exist independently. The two divinities are often given symbolic associations, with the Goddess commonly being symbolised as the
