Interesting, though it is something that pops up every do often, surprised its that's department is saying it. Also surprised you found an article anywhere that wasn't EU referendum related!

heh, yeah that's the big thing right now :P

Looking at the polls all over the internet for that brexit thing, I'll be surprised if the UK stays in the EU... Might work out to be a good thing - in a few years, the £ might be worth a lot more than it currently is (and has been) at the exchanges.

Yeah, saw this a few days ago...it's just a Rinse. Repeat. thing going on. It's routine for official advice like this to appear, only for the government to say that their approach is working and that drug use is going down (drug deaths going up, but details, details. Dear me). It's like trying to budge a boulder with a little finger. This stupid blanket ban has made me even more pessimistic as well. Although the ban kept possession of RCs (or anything psychoactive, as we know) legal. Baby steps, maybe?

A while ago when I used to smoke a lot, I'd just spend my evenings watching (brilliant) 80s comedy-horror films, or The Trap Door. When I drank it ended up with me staggering around, with blurred vision, before passing out in a numb sleep, which is exactly what I wanted. The one that caused the most harm to me is clear.

Oh yeah, on the EU referendum, I'm crapping myself. I want the UK to leave more than anything in the world. I won't get much sleep that night, and the next morning I don't know how I'll check the TV or internet for the results.

2016 will be an eventful year.

There never was a war just a "war machine" like everything money is the cause. I could carry on about all the issues and why its sooo wrong but you all are all smart enough. You don't need me explaining the obvious, I just cant help but speak when I see the words "war on drugs" cuz I get sick. What a fucture that is in almost everyplace in the world. The US is worse. I have done drugs with local cops the seen them in court putting away kids for the same thing. They gota do it so their department gets federal funding and the jails get their portion. WTF im gona stop,, like I said I can go forever.. Rather be positive.. Much Luv people.

@Derekd Yeah, I'd agree, money is definitely part of it. The hypocrisy of those drug-taking police is a bit stomach-churning...

I think vote-winning is another big part of it, though... that's why the stupid Psychoactive Substances Act (UK) was passed this year, which will just trade people's lives for votes. Well, the entire 'war on drugs' does...

Now that Theresa May (who came up with that sick law) is Prime Minister, I'm just despairing. Then again, the situation in the UK can't get any worse, since everything is either banned or tightly controlled through the medicines act, but I'm sure with May in charge, she'll find a way to make it worse and win more votes from tabloid-reading voters.

It's just that I thought, maybe a few years ago, the 'war on drugs' was starting to be revealed for the inherently immoral thing it is, now it's starting to not seem that way. =/
