Talk to Lee about drugs

London Mayoral contender, Lee Rotherham, wants to talk to you about drugs.

This is a big, big issue. The current plans is so clearly not working that some radical thinking is needed, should hard drugs and soft drugs be viewed differently? Should drugs be legalised, taxed and controlled? Should we take a zero tolerence approach to all drug use?

Don’t be shy, let him know your thoughts, actually I’d be interested to hear them too.

  1. Option 1: Delcare a No Tolerance policy and wage war on the pushers and pimps and underworld. Bloody good fun but the big boys will kill to protect their livelihoods, so better give Arnie and Clint a call first.

    Option 2: Declare a liberal “go on, have a go” policy and watch London descend into an Islington stupor. No real amusement to be had here. Huge mess to clear up when you realise how wrong you were.

    Option 3: Pursue the status quo, as followed by every political leader since prohibition. Say the right things to the right audience but do nothing. Accept that you just can’t do anything. The rich will take drugs, the poor will take drugs, the rich will make the poor take drugs and the poor will sell the drugs to the rich.

    The right answer is of course Option one, but the politically expedient answer is Option three. Just in case you weren’t sure.

  3. I was concerned about the options for drug users mentioned in the press last week by a senior policeman.

    He said that the average drug user steals £45000 per yearto feed their habit, and that it would only cost £12000 per year to provide them with the drugs they want.
    Has no one seen the problem with this? We’ll be paying 12000 a year for the remainder of their worthless lives! A much better 3rd option is to give them the whole £45000 in cocain or heroin in one go, and pow, one dead smackhead, and no ongoing costs to the rest of us who obey the law! It’s not like they were going to clean their act up, and invent a cure for cancer or anything, so who cares about them?

  5. No, just my view probably.
    The pot is’nt limitless, so it’s either let the dross go to the wall, and help the Army, police, teachers, firemen etc rather than (as is the case at the moment) let the Army, police, teachers firemen etc go to the wall and help the dross.
    That would be my priority that’s all.
    And, before you ask, yes the dross are everyone from coke sniffing sones of earls to the chavs in the estates. I.e. anyone who chooses self destruction before self sacrifice!
