In response to Kathy Gyngell: ‘CanObama’ watches America go to pot and Clegg follows suit, davidraynes wrote:
Kathy Gyngell does not mention it, but the US is also sinking under a new wave of opiate addiction, partly caused by over prescription but ultimately related to the culture of substance use, of which cannabis is a part. Drugs use IS cultural. We can feed that culture or seek to repair it.
Obama has ignored the problem, possibly because of his own alleged drugs use in his youth. The US will reap, is reaping, the consequences. A long slide into cultural decay and a lost generation.
Encouragingly in the UK, all drug use, legal or illegal, is trending down and has been for several years. We are doing considerably better than nations like Portugal, so often quoted by Clegg and others as a desirable model. There, youth cannabis, cocaine and crack use is way up, as the ESPAD survey indicates, So bad is their drugs problem, they were one of the first countries to try to do something about “legal highs”.
Despite millions of dollars thrown at drug normalisation/legalisation by Soros and others, outside the US, the line is largely holding. The world is not fooled. Particularly so in the UK, where, of course, the long term legalisation plot, was first exposed in the outing of Mike Trace in 2002 (which caused him to have to resign from his then new post at the UN) – in his own word at the time, “disgraced”.)
At least four of the UK’s most energetic drug legalisation lobby groups, including the All Party Group for Drug Policy Reform group run by Baroness Meacher, according to online links, take support money directly or indirectly from the Soros millions.
The self-styled “Global Commission on Drugs” is a fraud. It has no real stature whatsoever. It is almost exactly the plan outlined in the Mike Trace e-mails of 2002. A put up job, a fabrication.
Why has Nick Clegg joined this monstrosity?
Has he not heard of doing “due diligence”?
