Ecstasy less Dangerous than Riding a Horse February 8, 2009

The Chairman of the British Government’s Advisory Council for the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), Dr David Nutt has reminded us that horse riding is as, if not more hazardous than taking illegal ecstasy pills, that have a maximum penalty, like heroin and crack, of life in jail for possession. A sentence matched only by murder.

Whilst activities such as horse riding are positively encouraged regardless of hazards to oneself, the horse or the 100,000 car traffic accidents that occur annually in the UK because of the beasts.

The good doctor told the press that this ‘raises the critical question of why society tolerates – indeed encourages – certain forms of potentially harmful behaviour but not others such as drug use’.

Indeed a theme can be seen to be emerging, with the last post.

One anonymous source, believed to be on ecstasy pipes said that this was ‘probably because they were more fun’.

The ACMD is expected next week to call for the downgrading of the drug to a class B substance. This will not decriminalise the 500,000 people who consume the drug every weekend, but may mean we lock gurning ravers up for a slightly shorter spell in our jails.

Meanwhile the man horse love association threatened to dump a dead, drug horse outside Dr Nutt’s house.

The News of the World this week treated us to the news that one of the most successful Olympians, ever, Michael Phelps is a pot smoker.

The Natural News has pointed out that after much criticism of the athlete for smoking his bong, that it can hardly be seen as virtuous to publicly promote fast food to kids; one of the major causes of the obesity epidemic, let alone heart disease. Whilst Phelps’ pot smoking is a private affair until some rapscallion shares their photos with the gutter press, his pushing of these calorie laden grease traps however actually effects millions of people.

If ever proof was needed of the innocuous nature of the herb, this is it. The sad truth of legislation, however was further highlighted when Obama’s pledge or support for medical marijuana was proved to be fraudulent. As California police seized the beneficial herbs from patients in the state which has been attempting to utilise their benefits for some time.

‘Be the Change’…? How about we change the law so that natural herbs can be used, legally and mechanically processed, dead animal, fat laden products aren’t advertised to kids as virtuous sports enhancing, life style bonanzas….just an idea.
