UN drug policy a failure. Well, what do you expect, when you have the hubris to make your target a "drugs-free world"? Erm, what?
Let's be clear about something also. People's lives are very rarely "destroyed" by drugs. Mostly, they are taking drugs because their lives are already destroyed. You don't fix that by trying to stop drugs from existing. You stop it by trying to stop lives from being destroyed.
LOL. Detox is just the new aromatherapy. If people were well educated, we could just consider it harmless bollocks. But it's a bit more harmful than not at all because of the risk that people replace real medicine with it. Statins just might save your life; dandelions will not.
Guns don't kill people but they sure do make it easy. I wonder whether there are more of these killings in a recession. Does a general sense of gloom increase the individual's sense of hopelessness? We all worry that if we have a job, we'll lose it, and if we don't, we won't get one, don't we? So that even if we haven't been affected particularly badly by the recession, we're aware that we could be.
I never tire of looking at pictures of the universe. How tiny we are. How small our existence.
