Brown, hard on Drugs soft on facts

Gordon Brown seems determined to ignore the scientific advice of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs and push for Cannabis to be re-classified as a class B. Instead he feels fit to pass on his critique of such reports by clamming the following:

“I don’t think that the previous studies took into account that so much of the cannabis on the streets is now of a lethal quality and we really have got to send out a message to young people – this is not acceptable.”

This statement contains a lie. Skunk is not of ‘lethal’ quality. A lethal quality is an amount that is by definition lethal. If this report had backed up his assertion which he believes to be particular popular then he would without doubt be heralding the scientific basis for his thinking.

I shall take immense joy in not voting for labour on Thursday, not that I was ever mislead into doing so in the first place.

“Lethal quality”? He’s taking the piss, right?

A pity when a government doesn’t stand up to the more right wing elements at the Daily Mail…try getting some balls fellas….people might respect you then.

Yep they piss themselves when they think they have ticked off the Mail. Whilst they seem masters of ignoring the voice of their key supporters, hence why they now have none.
