"So its alright to take drugs because if the government stops you, they'll have to pay you some money in compensation, right ?"
What does a drugs education teacher say to a pupil who asks that today ? What message does this send out ?
The news, widely reported, that the government have settles out of court to drug users who were denied drugs when imprisioned, is appalling.
It's a crazy system that allows drugs users to demand drugs, illegal drugs, that the government have to supply, or the government can be sued.
Rather that wasting time, money and effort trying to change race hate laws again in order to obtain a party politically motivated conviction of Nick Griffin, how about a revision of the laws that alllows people in these circumstances to get hold of some of my hard earned taxes that I have paid to the government.
What ever sort of message does this send to kids wondering whether to take drugs or not ?
