This is a RIGHTS issue, NOT a DRUGS issue

It is proven fact that People will take drugs whether they are banned
or not. If it is nanny states job to protect us all from ourselves,
then she must try doing something else because what she is doing is
and always has, failed miserably. How can she then make them SAFER if
our safety is her prime concern?
Make them legal and regulate them?

Spend our taxes on education rather than prosecuting adults for
crimes against themselves?
- ANYTHING is worth a try as opposed to

continually banging heads against a brick wall time and time again to see if it still hurts!

Dave Ludlows (DRUGARM, Tauranga) disrespect for other peoples rights is troubling!
In a recent letter to the editor he denies that he is a busybody, HOWEVER, The

definition of a busybody is somebody that interferes in the lives of
others who are minding their own business and not harming others, so
if by definition this makes him a busybody, there's nothing I can do
about that. However, there’s something he can do, and that’s to
expend his excess energies on acts that do not contravene the rights
of the individual. May I suggest a campaign using facts and truth, to
educate the public on the effects of drugs, rather than a blanket
ban. Banning BZP will not make it safer, it will make it more
dangerous, and Mr Ludlow should wait for a toxicologists report
before jumping to conclusions about the hospitalised man!
My question

asking for ONE example of a banned substance that has not turned into
a more dangerous, stronger, unregulated, multi-million dollar
business monopoly for the underworld goes unanswered - probably
because there’s NOT one - THIS is how effective prohibition is! I
strongly advocate personal responsibility in healthcare and
education, the implementation of which would give you no cause to
interfere in my life. No drug use is the safest option.
No drug is completely safe. Adults should take drugs only if they
are fully aware of the risks, and are prepared to take
responsibility for the consequences of their actions."
I suggest that there are not enough LEGAL drugs to go about banning
BZP! RITALIN is deemed safe enough to hand out to children like
lollies, why is it not available for adult recreational use?
According to current research from Massey University 1 in 5 NZers
(aged 13 to 45) have used BZP-based party pills - that’s about half
a million adults. A BZP ban will deprive tens of thousands of NZers
of enjoyment. And enjoyment is, after all, one of the things that
makes life worth living. Funnily enough, fun isn’t mentioned once in
the EACD’s report to the Minister.
Now consider THIS:
BZP is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned drug list because it
is a PERFORMANCE ENHANCING drug.
By contrast, alcohol is notorious for being PERFORMANCE IMPAIRING (on
the road, in the bedroom, indeed, everywhere).
Under existing law, discerning drug users are denied the option of
using numerous illegal but safer alternatives to our most popular
recreational drug, alcohol, which causes more hospitalisation and
death than all illicit drugs combined. And, to add insult to injury,
we are denied the benefits of research and development into more
effective and safer recreational drugs. Who would bother to invest in
such research if, as is threatened to happen in the present case of
the industry body STANZ and “party pills”, the fruits of such
efforts are immediately banned?
