Once again some really smart people (Australia21) create something of value and then all the screeching harpies start their "it wont work" drowning out all intelligent conversation.
We have all seen and read all the negative backlash anytime anyone talks about the decriminalisation or the legalization and regulation of drugs.
Every idiot and his stupid mate has something to say about it and most of it is ignorant and /or fear mongering. The giveaway is the words used... these people don't even have a understanding of the basic terms to define the argument. They use decriminalisation and legalization intermittently and often parrot back propaganda as though it was original thought.
Lets face it the participants of the round table did have most areas covered including law and order, addiction, families and today's young people. In theory you would think people would listen just a little bit.
So before the stupidest and loudest amongst us start their shrilling lets keep the call going for......
meaningful participation of drug users in the design and implementation of evidence based drug policies.
Because at the end of the day, we are the ones these laws and policies are going to affect.
Us and our families.
