  1. Why is the Government becoming too “govern” – bent?

    Do people have the ability to “choose”?

    Why do the governors of this country ……. make all the decisions about every little thing and for every little one?

    Most people have the ability to make their own decisions.

    I for one am getting “really over” having vindictive laws applied to myself and others.

  2. A bit of a non-story really, The Echo doesnt even tell us what prohibited drug, how much of it, what info the cops were working from? nothing.

    @Rossco it will make a huge difference … to the poor soul who’s being harrassed by an antiquated law which the police are obliged to enforce. Andd to the community at large that must sufferthe effects of other (real) crime that remains in the ‘too hard’ basket. Just think they might have enough time and resources to do something useful for the community, but instead they spend their effort on ruining the lives of people who arent causing any problems.

    @Mary I agree Australia has become a nanny state over the past couple of decades. Obviously Australians cant be trusted to think for themselves. So why dont we just take a ‘leaf’ from that awesomely enlightened country that we usually outsource our thinking from – the USA has legalised cannabis in almost half of the states.
