    Maybe because Alcohol and Tobacco is easier to obtain?

    Yes, of course. Fair enough more people die from alcohol abuse and smoking, but that's usually over a long period of time and due to the side effects (liver failure, bronchitis, lung cancer etc). When you take cocaine/ecstasy or whatever, you have absolutely no idea what's in it! If you buy a bottle of Smirnoff, you're not going to have a "dodgy vodka" and die.

    Just proves the point? doesnt it?

    Yes it is

    Hmmm there is also allo these legal highs

    Researchers have said they dont reccomend taking any drugs but if tyhey had to take illegal ones cause theres laods of research on them but hardly any on the legal and the effects it can have in 10 years time

    So you'd support regulation of drugs then:?

    I'd rather the drugs available were pure and of a uniformed standard. A lot of people die from taking the amount they "nomally" take, but then finding they're stronger or mixed with something dangerous like fricking rat poison! I'm not saying drugs should be freely available and given out like lollipops, but by having them illegal, it just means they're more dangerous as you just don't know what you're getting. "Legal highs" that are more common now are just as dangerous, but to be honest, I have no sympathy for these people (ie anyone that takes drugs). If you go out and take rubbish, don't whinge that your bladder doesn't work anymore! If you want treatment for it, you pay for it. Don't scrounge off the NHS!

    Okay, so you're against any illness or injury being treated on the NHS that is self-inflicted?

    The problem is with a fat person being brought in after having a heart attack is if it's purely brought on by their diet, or if it's a genetic/inherited disorder.

    Do you save them on the off chance it isn't their own fault and then put them down afterwards if tests reveal it is.

    You're very brave for opening such a philosophical 'can of worms'.:thumbsup:

    I could have picked up on the fact she conflated use and abuse and used them interchangeably.

    I'm surprised she has sympathy for people who abuse legal drugs though.

    i personally think it would be a good idea to have certain "softer" drugs regulated and legalised..as studies have shown they (weed in paticular) can have benificial effects.however with all illegal drugs atm its a case of paying u pay ur moneys u take ur chances....

    lol what BS

    baffledsalmon you sure are

    whats does NI pay for again...........

    Wow, I love these threads, purely designed to bash the drug users, forgetting that we ALL use some form of drug in our every day life, asprin, paraceetamol, alcohol, tabacco etc etc, just because one is illegal and one is not doesnt make either of them more or less of an evil, alcohol and tabacco kill so many people each year, if they were to be made illegal then this would be greatly reduced, but you know what? never going to happen, fags and booze are now socially acceptable, and to remove them, would remove some of thr governments biggest tax windfalls.



    Mike..

    I suppose as well if you think on it theres many legal drugs that are some form of an illegal one as well, like the opiates, such as Morphine, have similarities to herione, and theres other cannibis like drugs that are legal to so in a sense i geuss you cant complain about the illegal if youve had the legal version. Thats me in no way saying legal drugs are good, quite the opposite.

    also got the debate of legal highs which seems to be causing quite abit of damage

    like someone else said you know the risks taking any form of drugs whether legal or illegal

    Hmm thats the thig with the legal highs, people dont know the risks assossciated with them, theres years of research on illegal hardly any on legal

    yeah i agree totally but if you wanna put car cleaner (gbl), de worming for farm animals (BZP) for example into your body you can surely work out these are gonna do some harm you won't swallow bleech for example. Most legal highs actually do tell you they are not for human consumption.
