|No joy from ecstasy bust|
Drug enforcement officers have made what they claim is Australia's largest
ecstasy bust. 750,000 tablets with a street value of $45M were seized from a
Sydney property in the culmination of a 4 month long operation involving
Federal, NSW and Netherlands police.
For the uninitiated - people on ecstasy tend to walk around suckling
chuppa-chups and saying 'I love you' between gently fondling each other's
genitals at so called 'rave parties'. Stopping them from irritating you is as
easy as snapping 'go away, loser', and alcohol is typically banned at such
events. The only significant risk these losers pose is to themselves.
Authorities were very quick to tell people the street value of the drugs, but
so far have made no announcements about how much taxpayer's money they have
wasted on this operation, or how much will be wasted on court costs and
Nor have they made any announcement of the cost of the theft, assaults, rapes
and murders they have been unable to prevent because of their myopic focus on
preventing people from exercising their free choice of taking drugs.
One of the reasons that people think drugs should be illegal is because people
should be stopped from self-harm. Harming people to prevent them doing
self-harm is sophistry worthy of a communist dictator - using the old cliche
"This hurts us more than it hurts you"?
If only it weren't true.
