In response to Kathy Gyngell: Javid’s disastrous green light for drug abuse,
It continues to puzzle me that any organisation, including the government, can condone drug taking, an illegal activity, either by testing drugs or dishing out harm reduction advice, without being charged with ‘aiding and abetting’ a crime.
This debate isn’t about anything that Javid has done. This is about decades now of cannabis and other lower class drugs being effectively legalised, and the police no longer enforcing the law against users or low level dealers.
They decided without any proper debate, or any consensus, to legalise it, in order to save the police time and resources. Now the problem in the UK is worse than ever, and young lives are being lost to this daily.
Whether we have purity testing centres or not isn’t the big issue here.
