I'm not making this shit up]; a week, where the biggest haul, in European history, of contraband cigarettes were discovered and the only concern being reported was the massive loss to the exchequer if these were sold on the black market; this has been a week where a man lost his job for telling the truth about how dangerous alcohol and tobacco are.
Today, Professor David Nutt was relieved of his role as official Drug Advisor to the British government after he rightfully explained that alcohol is far more dangerous than most banned drugs. I watched him being interviewed on Sky News this evening. I was completely impressed by his performance. The man was dead right about everything he said!
As an aside: People love to dream of fantastic conspiracy theories, where George Bush is a reptillian and 9/11 was done by field mice, but they ignore real genuine shit thats going on around them. Conspiracies don't involve space aliens, they involve money and business. Look at Ireland, the "Celtic Tiger" was grown on one big housing-bubble conspiracy: "At all costs, keep the voters happy, so they keep buying houses!"
I can freely and legally walk into my local TESCO at half three in the morning and purchase all sorts of substances, such as weed killer, bleech, superglue... that will likely kill me with a single dose, and yet I become a criminal if a magic mushroom grows naturally out in my back garden. Why does the state feel a need to protect me from some harmless substances with criminal laws and yet turns a blind eye to other harmful substance abuse? I don't do drugs, except for, caffeine, sugar and alcohol [three wickidly damaging chemicals] but I am stanchly opposed to the corrupt nature of our misguided nanny-states. My respect for criminals increases everyday....
