NZ Police milking 'P epidemic'
"With the double standards and hypocrisy surrounding drug use in NZ -
including alcohol and tobacco, Police couldn't promote speed and other
drugs better if they tried", say the Mild Greens.
It is anticipated the upcoming report of the health select committee
into appropriate health strategies associated with cannabis "and
consequently the most appropriate legal status" will enlighten New
Zealanders as to how much they are being taken for a ride via
manufactured consent, media-fuelled 'anti-drug' hysteria, and
The 1998 inquiry into the mental health effects of cannabis found
existing policy to be ineffective (and inappropriate by implication) in
reducing cannabis use, and that prohibition double standards impeded
drug prevention efforts.
While the police and public health administrators ignore the HSC 1998
admissions and insight, one must be extremely skeptical of the motives
of those police and politicians advocating 'tougher' prohibition, and
'additional resources to crack down', say the Mild Greens.
"Prohibition dis-ease is the root of all that is sick and dysfunctional
in NZ society"
