Worse than ‘ice’ hits the streets?

By sunshine 23 October 2008 90

Anyone heard of the latest drug doing the rounds in Canberra that apparently is worse than ‘ice’ and makes people more aggressive than those using ice?

Scary stuff.

What’s Your opinion?

Sure, why not? In fact, why don’t we arrange health insurance like all other insurances, where the higher risk persons pay more? Then you can build up a no claim bonus!

Snorting whiskey makes me gag.

Going to make fat slobs pay back their medical debts too?

How about hang gliders?

And please, explain to me the functional (not pharmaceutical) difference between a shot of whisky and a line of cocaine?

Maybe we should just legalise everything. It’s only the idiots who abuse substances who are going to be affected anyway. When people injure themselves, treat them, and use a HECS-like government loan arrangement to make them pay off their medical debt via the tax system. After all, noone forced them to take this crap.

It’s worth noting here that there are plenty of people around (like me) who don’t believe in illicit substance use. This opinion is just as valid as the people who want illegal drugs legalised.

fizzy drinks in little tins would be my first guess.

LOL. I once tried to play a competitive game of lawn bowls after about 4 Red Bulls. What a waste of time and effort that turned out to be.

Once it was legalised more social methods of consumption would become commonplace.

Just say no! The go and get drunk…

Seriously, at least with alcohol and other legal drugs the ingredients are known and advertised on the packages etc.. As a society we’re starting to acknowledge and deal with the anti-social behavior that goes with drinking and smoking (and dare I say gambling (also addictive)).

I don’t think legalising drugs is the answer though and no, I don’t know what is. I just can’t see anybody creating a situation where you can go into a chemist and buy a packet of condoms, six E’s and packet of Ice (or however the hell they sell it).

We had a case here in London some time ago where a couple had been on heroin and the woman was found with most of her teeth pulled out. The police arrested her partner but when she came down off the hit, she admitted to doing it to herself. According to her statement she thought the devil was in her teeth so she got some pliers and tore them out.

Can’t say I’ve ever heard of a drunk going quite that far.

Neither have i, they were actually on Ketamine at the time.
