Ice, Meth and E soon to be sold by the cops

By paperboy - 5 July 2008 163

ABC recently reported that the laws are being upgraded in the ACT to allow our local police to possess and sell drugs.

It brings our laws into line with other states, allowing officers to buy and sell drugs, without fear of being prosecuted themselves for possessing the illegal substance.

It’s probably surprising they haven’t had this power before now, but when the laws are passed, it will certainly change the atmosphere in and around many of Canberra’s better known nightclubs. Not to mention a few of the city’s dark lanes and back streets.

What’s Your opinion?

A ‘defo suite’?

What’s that? A room next to a laundry?

dmd – that kind of negates your point doesn’t it? I mean, alcohol is cheap and legal yet we still get drunkards who beat their wives, neglect their kids…

A junkie thinks of one thing – the next score. Making it cheap and available just makes that score come quicker.

What about drunk wife-beaters and killers, then?

What about them?

How do they relate to controlled operations being as their possession and use is legal?

Was that noise I heard a penny dropping?

Fant, hush now, the adults are speaking. You make no sense, especially when you try and shorten legal words to sound super cool, but just look super silly. Maybe you and DMD can hook up online for a big RSVP an online bridge session. You really do need something if you are posting at 2.29am on a Monday morning

Paperboy, I am assuming your name actually reflects your actual occupation and you are 12 to 15 years old. This assumption is based upon the totally off target nature of your posting. These laws have nothing to do with Cops selling E’s or other drugs. It has nothing to do with addicts. It is equally surprising that other more supposedly mature and educated posters have jumped on the fantasies.

Please stick to being a paperboy, you’ll never make a lawyer.

Ooooh, you’re courting a defo suite with that one, DMD! Defaming a pseudonym is a serious offence.

Off-topic, can anyone explain the need for “ice” and “meth” to be mentioned separately in the title of this article? They’re both methamphetamine.

Looking forward to any replies to this post.

Wow vg, that’s really deep! You’ve been shooting up corn flour again?

Tell me, (Barring your professional dealings, of course) how has a junkie’s drug-use affected you apart from matters which are related to the exorbitant price of drugs (i.e. theft)?

If drugs were legal and cheaper, would someone taking heroin in their home affect you?

Honest to god if your post doesn’t exemplify naivety and immaturity I don’t know what does. Try friends who have had the shit beaten out of them by an ice freak, being stuck with a used pick, watch children being neglected to the point of starvation and malnutrition because of the alternate universe their drug affected parents live in……..and none of this was through ‘professional’ dealings.

Christ you need to grow up

Nice try Skippy. Looks quite coherent to me, but then again I am literate

Cops who go undercover to buy sell drugs have got balls. Good way to bleed prospective new D’s. A friend of mine down South went through this process to become a D. Not for the faint hearted.

Are these the same powers the NSW Crime Commission operate under?

Remember that by definition, entrapment requires a law enforcement official to entice the subject into committing a crime that they would not otherwise intend to commit. For that reason, I can’t see how this legislation could provide law enforcement with any legal ability to entrap law abiding citizens – there is no provision for offering drugs to citizens randomly in order to make an arrest.

If an officer wanted to do this, they would do it regardless of this new legislation as it would be corrupt and illegal, would not stand up in court, and there would be much easier and more discrete ways (such as planting drugs during a property search) to make such an arrest.
