Lazy, Self-Serving, Incompetent MPs Decide To Blame Drug Consumers For The Consequences Of Their Failed Policies.

David Gauke MP, Justice Secretary

This is the latest propaganda and falsehood in the war on drugs. According to David Gauke MP who is the justice secretary, James Cleverly MP, Dr Sarah Wollaston MP and Cressida Dick , the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, it’s our fault, people who consume drugs, that their failed policies have created a gigantic criminal market which uses violence in its turf wars and takes no responsibility for the quality or safety of its products.

Dr Sarah Wollaston MP

These arrogant fools expect to sit in their ivory towers, issue edicts as to what we may or may not put into our own bodies and expect us to comply as well-behaved, dutiful, worker drones.

Their first duty in government is to protect us and they are failing abysmally.  They should be creating safe, regulated drugs markets where people can buy what they want in civilised conditions knowing that quality is assured, strength is known and proper labelling tells us exactly what we are getting. Instead they are doing exactly the opposite.  They abandon all responsibility to criminal gangs and their hands are dripping in the blood of the violence and deaths that ensue.

All the arguments have been won. There is no doubt that way to minimise the harm of drugs is to regulate them and make them available under strict conditions in accordance with their potential for harm. At a stroke this will virtually eliminate the harms of the criminal market which are by far the most significant harms for drugs such as cannabis and MDMA. In known strength and quality the health harms of these drugs are almost insignificant. For dangerous drugs such as opiates, cocaine and alcohol, regulation should be much stricter, opiates probably prescription only but their health harms will be minimised and decent services can be put in place, funded by taxing legal markets, to help those who fall victim to them.

Cressida Dick, Metropolitan Police Commissioner

The war on drugs is actually a war on people who choose different drugs from the ones these arrogant and deluded politicians determine to be acceptable.  This latest, vile denial of their responsibility for the highest ever rate of drug deaths and for the epidemic of drug-related violence is disgusting.  It is a direct attack on the people they are supposed to protect.  We must bring these tyrants down. Anyone who seriously espouses this idea that consumers are responsible for their failed policies is unfit to hold public office. It’s negligence, malfeasance and the most serious dereliction of duty.

  1. I have taken drugs for 37 years. Mostly cannabis but have done the lot over time. I’m fortunate not to be addicted by herion crack cocaine. I can take it or leave it. Cannabis is my main pain killer for AS, I get prescribed Tramadol. Nicotine is the 1 drug that is legal that I cant kick. We need to look at drug use like Portugal. I have done time for it abroad but will never stop using it. The sooner MPs realise this the better. I have often told my Dr to prescribe me an ounce of weed a week. I function on that completely.

    • Get yourself some nicotine patches man, check out Quit Squad at your local GP’s surgery. If you pay for scripts get a two week supply its cheaper. For me smokin shag was the last pleasure not something to give up easy, but mi leg got broke so I had to otherwise it would have healed a lot slower.
      In hospital they gave me nicotine patches and I was amazed how effective they are and I have smoked shag since I was a pickney, those things really do work.
      If you feel anxious, which you will have a spliff (clean) or if you do you own thing smoke fan leaves don’t throw them, a nice friend is handy in this situation and the anxious crap will soon pass.
      I wish I had quit a long time ago man that shit just mashed up mi vibe, now when I blaze up the vibe is so clear and clean and I can feel it properly without distraction feeling anxious because of the shag wanting to constantly satiate my nicotine habit.
      There was a time I thought and found it easier to quit class A’s than quit smokin shag

  3. I find the plant diet helps with most illnesses, cannabis can help but for me it’s about choice, the right to decide, the only drug involved in addition is dopamine! It’s time to legalise all drugs.

  5. What will fan leaves do? Never tried them but Ive made my own oil before CBD/THC. Am due at GP next month and am going for patches.

    • Hey MadGraham the first 3 sets of fan leaves don’t produce any or many trichomes like the sugar leaves around the bud, so I man smoke them like shag in a roll up if I want a smoke but don’t want to get high, like having a roll up or civvy without nicotine.
      And you can use them in a spliff instead of shag and smoke clean and stretch your bud.
      Those patches are amazing and will help to make a painless transition off nicotine just like using methadone to transition to being clean from a smack habit, yes there will be a bump at the end you just have to feather it out as best you can in your circumstances to minimise it.
      You can get creative if necessary and take the patch off or cut them into pieces for diminishing dosing, you do not need to be climbing the walls.
      When you do start to feel anxious and want to smoke to get nicotine have a spliff and relax, the anxiety shit soon passes after a month or so of getting clean from nicotine, remember these things are finite and they will pass, like a withdrawal no matter how shit I felt I always knew I was not a permanent condition.
      Better must come one day…

      • Yeah I would imagine going through the motions has a phycological effect. I will dry and try. They will be about the time I see the Dr. Saves composting them. I spend £36 a week on shag duty free. Thats £1800 a year.
