Are we ruled by a holy mob? Just found an article reminding me that in 1998 the UN (United Nations) General Assembly Special Session on Drugs (just had a meeting last week) decided to eradicate the Coca plant, poppy seed plant and the cannabis plant by 2008 for an annual cost of half a billion dollars each of the ten years.
Well, what an amazing thought and crazy dream, specially while there is a whole industry since over 20 years to produce guaranteed female cannabis seeds.
What drugs are these well paid people on to make these decisions? While more and more countries are realising/legalising the medicinal potential, especially for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) brought back with our soldiers, as well as the peaceful recreational potential.
When will we realise that Henry J. Ainslinger, the first US Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics from 1930-1962, was a racist, hating Mexicans and coloured people. He misled not only the USA, but the whole world.
Here in NSW we rather let young people die then, by not allowing pill testing (for example Ecstasy), or victimise them with random roadside drug testing (not for impairment though), that so many of them are losing their licence, meaning losing their job, income etc.
Do we really need to keep on fighting the lost war against drugs? Please stand and speak up for Drug Law Reform now!
