I took part in an interesting moralistic debate around that subject once. The argument was that is a person who steals a pencil, pen, or other trivial item from the office any less guilty than the person who steals a $million in a non-violent manner. Both are guilty of theft and the law set's no degree's of guilt.A minority sucks up the majority of le time and resources. But really we all commit crime to one degree or another.
Hard to keep track of official stats, but the same names mange to keep the powers that be employed.
Yes, it is all the same offense.I took part in an interesting moralistic debate around that subject once.

Addiction is also a revolving door, and, strangely enough, the biggest problem most addicts have is admitting they have a problem, even those whom you'd think would know better such as doctors and other medical professionals. It may well be everyone in the street where an addict lives knows he is an addict, except the addict himself, until it becomes blindingly obvious even to the addict, by which time it is usually too late for him to stop on his own.The revolving door isn’t an exaggeration, it’s reality that nobody wants to truly address. I can tell you by name who deals meth, steals atv’s,etc around me because they are in and out so much there’s no chance of a low profile. The only good part is every once in a while they fcuk up and end up -accidentally- killing themselves and theft rates actually go down for a bit......
Err good luck with that at this time of year you crazy psychonautThis time of year Magic Mushrooms are beginning to sprout in woods and meadows. Liberty Caps like the ones in the picture are one of the more common types of psilocybin that can be found in the UK.

If you grew up on RAF bases in the middle of the countryside when I did it was common practice to go off with a few friends to pick them and either eat them there and then or dry them out and make tea with them.
They are hallucinogenic so will interfere with your vision and perception for a few hours, but on the whole are very enjoyable with no after effects.
Taking them may also allow you to be privy to some great and profound knowledge, ie the notion that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively ,that there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves....More likely though you'll just have an enhanced appreciation of music.
When I was taking them as a teenager they were legal, but since 2005 were made a Class A drug like heroin, which is utterly ridiculous as they are not addictive. Nor did they involve criminality - until that is they were made illegal and now dealers can make good money selling them.
Coincidentally the last time I saw them growing in abundance was at Stanford Battle Area in Norfolk.
Obviously you need to be careful about what fungi you eat as some are very poisonous - as in deadly.
I think you’ll find the sentencing guidance covers thatI took part in an interesting moralistic debate around that subject once.

I don't smoke the horrible shit, but it hasn't stopped me from claiming my right to grow my four plants per household. I'm just doing it for a lark, and I'm certain that come September, just before harvest time, they'll magically disappear.
There you go mate, get on itI must have led a very sheltered life. Never touched it at uni, not out of any moralistic reasons but none of my friends did, and the one or two who'd come back from trekking round god knows raving about something that looked like moist guinea pig shit were utter throbbers.
When Boots start selling the stuff Pfizer makes I might try some. Until then, nah, the increasing levels of scary nastiness as you go up the supply chain put me off.
So true. In between a whole load of visiting stuff and being photographed for Facebook, and virtue signalling for the Rainbow People, PCSO Paul Whiteside and the rest of the Wiltshire Police have apparently little idea where the drugs in Pewsey are being sold. This is despite them being told several times by members of the public. It’s almost as if they don’t want to know.Ask absolutely anybody except the PCSO we have in lieu of a beat copper. #war on drugs lol.
Tesco’s at Yeading in Hayes. Dropped the missus there once (we’d been to B&Q around the corner) to do a bit of shopping and I sat in the car waiting for her in the car park. I noticed a group of lads walk around the corner and start hanging around near the store entrance. They all got their phones out and were starting to take and make calls. All of them except the one with the leather bag hanging on a long strap around his neck. He would occasional saunter over to one of the phone lads and a hand would go into the bag and the goods were on their way.
Then there’s the Wilco car park in Yiewsley. I use the bottle bank there to dispose of empty beer bottles etc. I often spot a rather flashy BMW drive around the car park and park in a secluded spot near the rear of the store next to the park entrance. Then there are a couple of minutes of people going to the car from the park etc and then the car leaves. I go there to dispose of bottles roughly once a week and I frequently see it going on.
I’m not claiming there was never a drug problem in my area but the new problem is that there has been a massive series of developments of housing (mainly flats) in the area. Show me an empty warehouse or a disused pub and I guarantee a block of flats will be built on it. It’s been endemic! The huge influx of new residents have brought with them a considerable number of drug users and the increased activity related to drug use is noticeable to those of us who have lived here for a considerable time.
Did I mention the local cafe taken over by the Albanian Mafia? There is an old car showroom that was bought and converted into a rather up-market looking cafe. It’s frequented by an often large group of men who mostly look like a rather rough lot and they are all Albanian. I won’t say how but a local person spotted two handguns in the safe in a small office in the building. The Albanians are allegedly the new kingpins in the drug trade in East London. It looks like they are expanding.
So yeah, I could probably point you in the right direction.
