Hello? Anybody home? It's fine to sell one mind altering drug that has strong links to domestic violence, motor vehicle accidents and unlawful behaviour but it's not OK to sell the other?
I don't agree with party bills and have never taken them but am not anti party pills. I have friends who take them regularly and they go out clubbing, don't drink, and have a great time. I have friends who go out, drink, get into fights and spend the next day ill in bed. Which is the better of the two? Alcohol causes far more problems in our society and yet apart from restrictions on it's sale from licenced premises and only to those over 18 no other restrictions exist. We have a teenage drinking culture in NZ that's getting worse by the day (in part because it's not illegal for those under 18 to actually consume alcohol) and levels of domestic voilence that should be shaming us as a country.
Obviously banning party pills is far more important for our politicians.. Yeah right.
