It is a lot better than it sounds. I bought it by chance when it was first introduced in the ASDA at 14. Usually it is around 22

It is one of those whiskies that you can drink straight and not wretch. Very smooth and sweet.

I went to the races with my father a few months back. Beverley in Yorkshire. Geese I loved that town. So clean, tidy and nice town centre. Cobbled thin streets. However Whilst I was there I tried a new Jack Daniels whiskey. JD Honey. Now that was weird!

I always drink whisky straight and never retch! Still, each to his own. Certainly sounds better than chewing cats or whatever it is kestrel's on about!

I think im slowly getting there as I age a little though I like to have ice with it.

I used to retch(oops I just noticed my spelling) all the time drinking whiskey straight and used to always drink it with coke or iron bru.

Whisky with coke or irn bru? You've got me retching now at the very thought of it. It's like putting tomato sauce on fillet steak.

As my old feller used to say, "what a waste of good whisky".

The only thing you put in whisky is more.

Or as appealing as making love, whilst wearing wet-suits, and masks and snorkels.

Properly rubbered up.



Khat's really bad for oral health, by the way.

Don't expect to keep your peggys into old age, or get many snogs, as your breath will stink.

Can cause many peridontal problems, and there's also an increased risk of oral cancer.

For those reasons alone, probably not something that should be held up as being an easy way of getting your legal rocks off.

How very true, but would you feel so proud about such a statement if it helped a child/teenager down the road to ruin?

It comes in bundles of leaves on stalks and has to be chewed to get the effect - the juice from chewing is swallowed and the remaining material spat out. It is a lot of effort to chew it and has a bitter taste and is a bit similar to chewing a bag of liquorice - it takes up to 2 hours to chew enough. It is mainly used by those Ethnic types as a social stimulant in social meetings, bit like British use beer in the pub.

That seems like a very good description of something that someone has tried and tested, what score out of ten would you give it

However, I will state that my position on this question comes from a firm belief that a "war on drugs" with all it's regressive laws will not solve the problems associated with drugs. In fact, it exacerbates them; and it dooms thousands in Mexico, Columbia, Honduras etc. As with my opposition to capital punishment, it is based on a belief that harsh laws do not work. If capital punishment did act as a deterrent, I would personally volunteer to pull the switch, or the trigger. And if I could be convinced that wars on drugs would end the miseries and pain associated with them, I would fully support those laws. Lidices don't work ... never have worked, never will work.

Nah. Doubt he would drink that buckfast. Actually I have only seen that once. In the shop on Milnshaw Lane. Too expensive for what it is. Waste of money

Re: Should we 'legalise illegal drugs'? - Poll.

A question to those who use recreational drugs.

Does their legal status prevent you from taking your chosen drugs?

Have you ever faced criminal charges for using them?

I'd suggest not. Certainly not in the last twenty odd years.

I don't know anyone who has.

If recreational drugs were all legalised, it's my opinion that some would take that as a green light that it's risk free to use them.

Young people especially aren't known for worrying about life in the long-term. Today, and tomorrow is enough for them to get their head round. Plus, when you're that age, everyone thinks they're invincible anyway. Most teenagers disregard any possible risks with the eternal youthful claim that 'It'll never happen to me'.

Today, as the law in this country more or less turns a blind eye to possession for personal use, how will legalising whatever you take be benefical to you?

I'm already assuming you have the sense to be using a dealer, who's drugs, as far as quality control, you already trust.

I'm genuinely interested to know how decriminalising these drugs will make your enjoyment of them any better, than it already is?

I certainly don't know any users who don't already take exactly what they want, when they want, even though they're classed as illegal now...in theory at least.

What benefits would there be to you, if the current status quo was interfered with?
