Much the same throughout the land.

There's no support for the law to be changed.

There are no votes to be won, if any political party suggested recreational drugs should be decriminalised.

It won't be happening.

Fact.

No debate.

Windows isn't a computer, it just ensures that GIGO runs to form.

I do just about realise that thank-you, Less and you cheated by adding in a bit while i was replying!! -I'm beginning to wonder if my mistake has been not dabbling in recreational drugs for all these years -maybe then I'd understand technical things and would have greater powers of understanding - perhaps it would have opened up my mind...

[QUOTE=Restless;1014977]Just out of curiosity where did you get that from. That it isn't that popular? It is certainly good to know. I read a few times of kids that had died from taking it.

I got it from my professional experience - a couple of years ago most of the young people I come across were using bubble/mephedrone to major excess. Now, quite a few still use it but nowhere near as many. It's dreadful stuff, sends people crazy when they're on it and messes with their heads in an awful way. I knew some who were hospitalised after using it, but fortunately I haven't personally come across any deaths.

Alcohol has been guilty of bringing about far more misery over the years than drugs (violence, anti social behaviour and even family poverty and other problems). I don't smoke and never have but I don't go clambering for it to be banned, even before the ban in public places stopped it being rammed down my throat. We cannot go banning things just because we don't personally like them, we just stay away from them (a bit like turning the tv over if you don't like the programme).
So we should just let people do whatever they want so long as its their choice, if there wasn't a ban on drugs such as heroin and cocaine, you think life would just go on as it is, but who ends up picking up the tab, its bad enough even when its illegal never mind, just wonder if you had kids whether you would be giving them the weekly allowance in £10 or £20 raps of cocaine

Most people buy cheap clothes then di, do they, caught a bit of the TV program on Shad last night and one kid had a United shirt on about £40, and if you ever see programs about problem kids living on these estates they all have the latest Nike trainers on and Adidas track suits, wonder how that happens

Those items may not be cheap to buy John but they are still produced under atrocious conditions.

Olympic brands caught up in abuse scandal | Business | The Observer

And their prevalence is down to peer pressure and slick marketing.

The post I was answering was about people buying cheap clothes, not about how cheap they were to make, loads of Kids wear named sports goods, irrespective of it be through peer pressure, that had little to do with the argument

OK I was tying it up with the post above, didn't make that clear. Cheap or inflated prices, production conditions are similar.

Just supposing we stop buying these goods produced under what we agree are atrocious conditions?
The factories go bust, shut down, the children and adults working there have no jobs- so no money at all- so no food- so they starve.
Supposing we pay them decent wages on a par with Europe? The goods won't be cheap any more so companies won't buy them(they might as well make them in the EU and save shipping costs)-same result.

You really are sad if you think that.

As it states in post one, this poll was started to illustrate to those who aren't too bright, that the vast majority of Accy Webbers don't want recreational drugs legalised.

I'm beginning to understand why some seek to escape the reality of their lives.

It can't be easy.
