MP Used Drugs Shocker!

BBC Link

Home secretary Jacqui Smith used cannabis but didn't like it! That makes it ok though.

What makes it brilliant is that she says she needs to "put in place the laws and the support and information to make sure we carry on bringing cannabis use down". What a cheek as it was this incompetent governement who effectively decriminalised cannabis in the first place.

Sadly, I fear that if the 'taking' of cannabis disqualifies a person from holding high office in government or opposition, then the nation may be faced with prospect of me as prime minister and leader of the opposition!

Tell you what though, 'problems' relating to Defence, Crime and Immigration would be addressed pdq!

It was 25 years ago FFS who cares?

Fair play to her for being open and honest. At least it beats the "Call me Dave" approach of not telling and the Clinton approach of admitting it but then saying he doesn't inhale.

Exactly.
Anyone who has not made small mistakes in their life does not have the experience of life to qualify them for any office.

Perhaps we might actually get a useful perspective from her: it isn't harmful, it is available in every city, town and village in the country, a large percentage of the country enjoy it and its ongoing prohibition is merely lining the pockets of the dealers.

No, on second thoughts, I don't think we will...

Shock horror: Grown woman once used an illegal substance! At least the Daily Express has something to replace Princess Diana on their front page tomorrow.

Which Sunday paper was about to "out" her then? Or did she just wake up this morning and just decide to "Fess up"

Any connection to yesterday's announcement of a review of the policy on canabis? An announcement made "in response" to a loaded PM's question. I smell a bit of spinning going on (or a dead rat - not sure which)

Is she?
She had smoked it "just a few times", had "not particularly" enjoyed it
Why do all MPs say they only did it a couple of times and didn't enjoy it. If she was being truly honest she'd probably be saying that she loved it and was on the weed at every opportunity!

The fact that she did it doesn't bother me. The fact that she has made decisions in her youth and is now able to use that experience to help guide her decision making process now doesn't bother me. But the cop out way of saying she did it but didn't like it makes me think that its just an exercise to clear her decks!

Ideally qualified to formulate defence policy, going by recent standards.

Stupid tart. It's obvious that she was about to be outed. And to say that she didn't enjoy it, or didn't inhale, or that blowjobs wasn't actually sex per se is just a load of old cobblers.

As pointed out, if she wasn't a bullsh!tting politico t@rt, she would have said "Yes, I smoked cannabis at Uni, and I enjoyed it, and maybe I did a bit of coke, but unfortunately E wasn't around then, or I would have done that too, but I most certainly had sex out of wedlock, cheated on some of my exams and fleeced my parents (and the taxpayer) as much as I could whilst having my jollies during studies."

Chance'd be a fine thing.

BTW: No, I didn't.

No but I always was a goody two shoes

but I most certainly had sex out of wedlock,

damn right

cheated on some of my exams

maybe not the exams but the coursework

and fleeced my parents (and the taxpayer)

yup....that student loan earnt me about £400 in a high interest account and only paid it off last month

as much as I could whilst having my jollies during studies."

Ok so is that Defence or Justice I get?

Because it could be true? I tried it a couple of times and didn't enjoy it.

Yes it could be true. It just seems that very few people will turn around and say they did enjoy it. If no-one enjoys it why the hell is it so widely used. Maybe I'm being cynical and she is being 100% honest.

Maybe everyone who enjoyed it carried on doing it and is now completely unsuitable for employment because they are consatntly ripped off their tits on crystal meth?

I tried it a few times - couldn't stand it - gave me the sh1ts (to be quite frank) - but went back on two or three occasions just to see what all the fuss was about!

To be honest, it's b*ll*cks and not a patch on Stella....that said, some people do still "take" (?) it, but I think it's not as widespread as it was ie when Jacqui was "hanging out at uni, man".

Who wouldn't vote for an MP who said "it's a fair cop, guv - tried it all - did/didn't like - moved onto beer now - yep - I do get pissed quite a lot - vote for me!"....we all know they did it at uni and who would vote for someone who didn't have such "life experiences"...I just wish they'd be honest FFS!!!

Contrary to popular belief, drinking alcohol, smoking, behaving like a student/knob, having pre-marital sex, fleecing parents/tax-payer and the like are all legal. Taking prescribed drugs is not.

I may well have done some, most or all of the first group and was entitled to do so - wouldn't mind trying some again in fact, but what I wouldn't do is accept a job and try and tell others that they mustn't do what I already have.

Why the hell should they listen? When she says you shouldn't do drugs they will say why not - you did. Many will not like it, grow up or have the strength to avoid addiction - far to many will slide into oblivian and we the public will pay the price

I agree entirely, but that was not the attitude taken when Mr. Cameron was accused of 'taking' cannabis.

PS How do you 'take' cannabis? Up the jacksie or what?
Wasn't it cocaine that he was accused of taking? As far as I'm concerned, he could be snorting the stuff straight off the heads of bald dwarfs in the cabinet room so long as he gets Broon out of No 10.

I remember speaking with a regulating officer (=RMP) who dealt with drug offences in the Navy. After giving a superb presentation involving X-rays of Old Spice bottles lodged in rectums, photos of syringes stuck in japs eyes and the use of 'poppers' to aid the insertion of the contraceptive coil ('Is that what's meant by "ease springs" sir?'), he spoke of lecturing New Entry sailors.

He had to give his presentation to every new entry class and he included a secret ballot on what drugs the class had taken. This was nearly 20 years ago and even then, there would be a few in the class who had tried heroin or cocaine. About a third would have taken mariwan, err, mariana, err, marinera, er - oh sod it. I can't spell it but you know what I mean.

A half sucked Werthers Original is on offer to anybody who can tell an old man what the difference is between cannabis and marijana, err, marwa, err - you still know what I mean don't you.
