Call to tolerate drug dealers

#1
Now apart from stating he obvious that if one is arrested another more violent dealer may take over, what are this lot thinking.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/8175550.stm

My idea of tolerance is to arrest them for possession and lock them up for life with hard labour, (can we ship them to the USA for this?) alternatively the Asian idea of the death penalty would work as a deterrent.

Excellent liberal thinking, is this another government funded quango perchance?

More liberal nonsense. Whenever they ease up on drug issues, crime gets worse. Zero tolerance works. In my opinion, the user needs to be targetted and punished severely. Remove the user, you remove the demand and therefore no customers to deal to. We could start with celebrities like Moss, Winehouse and Docherty, make an example of them by making them blubber as they go dwn for a few years.

Let us not forget that drugs fund terrorism. It is major source of funds.

We need a joined up approach.

1. Buy up the matierials (ie the poppy fields) whereever they are. THey are nearly always in poor areas, so the going rate should be cheap. Use the matierials whereever possible, use some for refineing in to the drug and burn the rest. Not essential to the plan, but would help.

2. All users that are caught, go down for 5 years. Regardless of if they are a supermodel (moss) or a waste of skin (docherty). There we do the cold turkey thing. Lock 'em in a room, sliding food under the door. if they need it the odd hit or two, as the come down. (none of this methadone malarky). These would be special jails/clinics. And seeing as the majority of losers are quite wealthy, we'll seize their assets to pay for the facility.

After all they'd pay megabucks for a hug inthe Priory, so they can pay to go here. We'll call "Crack Tax".

3. All "dealers", (those with more than 3 "hits" on them) get hung. And assets seized.

Should bump up the income of HMG, AND clear our streets of drugs.

4. The RN will be allowed to hang at sea, crews of boats found to be carrying drugs.

Great idea, leave the chavs to get on with their drug dealing, (in the same way we leave people to break into houses) and concentrate on the real stuff like speeding cyclists 8O

Is it any wonder that chavs don't give a flying one for the Police/law/public.

I must be getting old but these things just come round more regular than the local bus.

The great Brains of Arrse have already answered this;

From the crops in Afgan (no cost) we pump pure shite onto the streets. Most drugie scum will OD, the rest we will have to 'help'. Oh and the dealers will all feel the urge to kill themselves too.

Its just a little help to Darwin

Hire a building, pile all the drugs that have been confiscated in the centre and get all the chavs/chavesses in tell them it is free and you are not leaving until they are gone.
Once in, deploy the gas pipes and kill the feckers.


I haven't given this a lot of thought

I think Malaysia has a very good drugs policy…

I agree, the drugs industry is still the biggest challenge to government (see Mexico), so the sooner we adopt this policy the better. Then we can think about the second biggest challenge, corruption in banking and the stock market.

Drug dealers?
Hang them.
Insufficient deterent these days.
I like it.

Can Britain not follow the example of Singapore,where ALL with over a specified quantity of drugs in their possesion are deemed to be drug trafficers and upon a guilty verdict,are sentenced to death and duly executed.

Why not just make drugs legal. Sell them in government owned places and tax them?
cool yeah.
why not? it doesnt currently matter if they are 'legal' or not, you can still get them, and always will be able to unless we were to install hermetic border controls and draconian measures against street dealers and the like. which would cost money, so isnt going to happen.

but whether they are legal are not, it's the same wastes of skin that are going to be become hopeless addicts (in the same way that booze is legal now - whats stopping people from going out and becoming alcoholics?).

if you legalise it, you can tax it and remove the profit that the criminal element find so attractive, and then use the tax revenue you raise to either help the addicts who want to to get clean, or take the hopelessly recidivistic(sp?) ones (your burgling and mugging scumbags) and bang them up for a serious amount of time. surely that would be far more sensible than the situation we find ourselves in at the moment?

If you look at the report, a great deal of input is coming from the ACPO and one of the things they seem keen on is best expressed by this:

“Harm reduction, rather than quantities of drugs seized or individuals convicted, is a more useful way of prioritising activities to improve the lives of citizens in the UK.”

Now some of it is fine, such as targeting organised crime, repeat offenders and selective high visibilty policing but other bits really grate, especially that which says one of the "harms" on a community is from Police drug enforcement action itself.

But sadly there is a grave risk that all these fine words will result in targets that measure results (and thus funding) by "Harm reduction" which will no doubt be a soft, fuzzy term and open to manipulation.

I think people who deal Class A drugs should be punished. As this is the group of people that cause a lot of trouble and help support terrorism. People who grow/smoke a bit of weed should be left alone as it is completely harmless. In fact i would go as far and say weed should be legalised for people over the age of 18.
The government could even tax the hell out of it for all i care. Also if weed was legalised in the UK there is the potential for the government to make £6 billion pounds just in taxes............
