    An interesting interview on cannabis (and synthetics and bans) on Campbell Live last night.

    Founder of the Drug Policy Alliance, Ethan Nadelmann discusses how the group has played a key part in a debate that has so far seen two US states legalise marijuana, with more set to follow.

    He discusses just what it was that ultimately convinced Washington and Colorado to legalise marijuana.

    Stuff report that Dunne was forced to backflip on the legal high (interim) ban after pressure from National MPs.

    It was widely assumed Dunne wanted to gazump Labour, which was set to announce its support for a ban.

    But it is understood he was strong-armed into a compromise by increasing pressure from the National Party caucus, who wanted to dump the Psychoactive Substances Act and implement blanket prohibition.

    Sources say Prime Minister John Key was put under pressure at weekly caucus meetings as MPs were relentlessly lobbied by local mayors and community action groups.

    A source said Key feared “a revolt” after a push by Cabinet ministers Paula Bennett, Nikki Kaye and Todd McClay, who wanted the legal highs off the streets in their electorates.

    Discipline within the National Party ranks is so tight that open dissent is rare. But it was a case of “to hell with the act” regardless of embarrassment about a flip-flop.

    A public backlash, an outcry from local councils, and intense media scrutiny saw discord within the party grow, and threaten to boil over into the public arena.

    Labour jumped on the same ‘bugger the consequences’ banwagon.

    The effective shutting down of all legal high sales may make shop precincts look a bit better for mayors and MPs in the short term but if this turns into an openly ugly under-supported addicts’ angst there could be a backlash for MPs who jumped on the banwagon.

    If a ban doesn’t work (as Dunne, the Drug Foundation, Ireland’s health minister and many others keep claiming) what then? Hope that the mess doesn’t become apparent until after the election?

    In your opinion, what would be suitable category names for A, B, C, and D above?

    I am interested in the relationship between worldview and language choice. I invite you to state your worldview and your chosen titles for the four categories.

    My preliminary findings suggest that the larger a government you prefer, the more syllables will be in each of your chosen category titles.

    It is an interesting debate.

    Personally I think synthetic highs should be banned, and that marijuana should be decriminalised. I do not think it should be legalised, and those that ‘deal’ in it, should still be prosecuted. However when grown (in small amounts) and possessed for personal consumption, it should not be a crime.

    My reasons are:

    1. Synthetic highs are harmful, some more so than the natural marijuana – especially those that have not undergone sufficient testing.

    2. Marijuana is a gateway drug when sold by dealers who like to push other more expensive and profitable drugs on to young and unsuspecting clients – frequently P.

    3. Remove the dealers, allow individuals to have a personal supply and you will ruin the market. There will no longer be the huge profits in it, when it is not illegal – hence less will deal in it. (Yes there is an argument that they will progress to harder drugs, however, without the contact with so many clients, this will do less damage).

    4. Our police and courts are blocked up with needless marijuana related petty crimes. Decriminalising it would stop this waste of resources and allow more focus where it needs to be.

    ciaron (8.00am):
    NADA PODE ME SEPARAR DO AMOR DE DEUS
    requiescat in pace, Ayrton Senna da Silva.

    Good call, ciaron. Senna was without peer in my lifetime.

    There was much speculation about the crash that took his life – at one stage the Italian authorities were suggesting the steering failed in his Williams car and they actually listed it as the ‘probable cause’ of the accident. But the Williams team maintained it broke on impact.

    In recent years (when video analysis became more sophisticated) the suggestion was made the cause of the accident was much simpler than a component failure…. the Williams FW16 was run at a very low ride height – that’s why we saw lots of sparks coming from the under tray (and from the sacrificial blocks) when it went over a bump with full tanks. And it was normal at the time to start a race with (very) low tyre pressures and let them build up temperature (and pressure) in the early stages of the race. Senna led from the start but there was an accident on Lap 1 involving Pedro Lamy and JJ Lehto and the safety car was deployed. Unfortunately, it remained out for 5 full laps and whatever heat was in Senna’s tyres, was greatly lost. And this also means the tyre pressure eased back.

    The safety car pulled in and at the start of lap 7, Senna floored it in an effort to get a jump on the rest of the field. However, when he entered Tamburello, the car bottomed out (sparks were visible) and he speared off into an outside wall at 190 mph. Even though the Williams techs removed the telemetry pack from the car immediately after the accident, the cause of the crash remained speculative. But one suggestion is that the bottoming out had lifted the nose of the car and as a result, he momentarily lost steering. And in less than 2 seconds, he went from 190mph (310kph) to zero and was killed when a suspension arm pierced his Bell M3 helmet. Even the presence of F1’s medical guru Sid Watkins couldn’t save him. It was a sad day for motorsport… indeed, during practice the previous day, Roland Ratzenberger was also killed.

    When Ayrton Senna was killed, the motorsport world lost it’s favourite son and IMO, we haven’t seen anyone like him since.

    Elaycee,
    I’ve never subscribed to the “bottoming out” theory, as the crash occurred on the second lap after the safety car came in. With Schumacher right behind him, Senna set the 3rd fastest lap on lap 6, and crashed on the following lap. If the FW16 crashed due to bottoming out, it seems to me this would have been most likely to happen on lap 6 when tire pressures were at their lowest, not lap 7.

    But I wouldn’t call myself an expert :)

    It’s unlikely that low tyre pressures caused Senna’s car to skate off the road – it had been at full racing speed for a lap after the safety car went in and the tyres would have been well within a safe operating window when the car went off the road.

    The steering column theory is still the most credible – the movement of the wheel in the cockpit suggests the steering wheel was moving quite a lot. Williams released a video of David Coulthard showing the flex in the wheel and that was assumed to be the end of that, but Coulthard has arms like a stevedore and Senna preferred a lightly balanced car. It is unlikely he would have needed to, or even been able to move the steering wheel in such a way for the button trajectory to mirror Coulthard’s demonstration. Coulthard’s demonstration was also done in a stationary car, and not at the 190 MPH that Senna’s car left the track.

    Kea: Out of those four labels, the only one I’d change would be “dummies” (It’s not particularly helpful as a descriptor, and is a derogatory term). Without seeing the report and a more cogent description of that problem group (is it the gullible/easily led students who respond to peer pressure, despite knowing better? Is it those with learning problems who struggle in class? is it those with low IQ’s?) , I can’t tell what label I’d use instead.

    The other 3 seem to be pretty clear descriptions of the problem groups in question – and none of those labels are as out and out derogatory as “dummy”

    I’m not really convinced that this legal highs business is worth all the hoopla about it. I don’t know a single one of my wider friends/family that touch the stuff, the same can’t be said for alcohol, cigarettes, and weed. Not sure about the harder stuff but would be surprised if any had touched P.

    Is it honestly that bad? A large part of hospital admissions from Friday night to Saturday morning is alcohol related, less so these other substances. Its the combination that will really fuck people up. Take a herbal high and wash it down with a quart of vodka… wow what a surprise you end up in the gutter puking your guts out.

    It seems so surprising to me that we are moving in the opposite direction to the rest of the world where at minimum decriminalising week if not legalising is the trend. Doesn’t really matter either way to me, neither have any appeal to me.

    There are two new European election voting intention polls out today, both showing substantial leads for UKIP.

    TNS-BMRB have European figures of CON 18%(-3), LAB 27%(-3), LDEM 10%(+1), UKIP 36%(+7), Others 9% (tabs here). Changes are from their last poll in early April.

    ComRes/ITV have European figures of CON 18%(-4), LAB 27%(-3), LDEM 8%(nc), UKIP 38%(+8!), GREEN 4%. Full tabs are here and changes are once again from a previous poll in early April.

    Note that both polls are based on only those certain to vote. This tends to boost up the support of UKIP, who have the most enthusiastic supporters in the European elections – if ComRes had taken those saying they were 5+/10 likely to vote it would have decreased UKIP’s lead to four points.

    Help us or you’ll see crazies: Addict
    Nicky said she had tried to cut down her daily habit, go cold turkey and had even sought medical help but getting off the drug was “impossible”.
    She said she had been on the Bay of Plenty Addiction Service (formerly CADS) waiting list for three months and was planning to stockpile legal highs until she could get a medical detox. “I can’t do this myself, no one can.

    “If I try to give up. I sweat profusely, sweat just pours out of me, I shake, feel nauseous, have cramps and vomit. My stomach feels terrible, it feels like I have a cyst in there squeezing, and you get really dehydrated, really sick. You can’t function and I hope the Government realises that.
    “I hope they realise there are going to be a lot of people out there who need support. You can’t just take something away from people and expect everything to be okay.”

    Another addict said he tried to get help from one local organisation but staff simply said “exercise, eat well and take multi-vitamins”.
    “They don’t understand this stuff is worse than coming off P,” he said. “The pain is indescribable so you just go back to smoking it, I don’t know what I am going to do if I can’t get proper help.”

    While Cunliffe derides John Key for also ruling out testing animals with fluffy tails but suggesting long straight tail [rodents] may be OK, it appears there may shortly be a lot of people about with first hand information and data on how particular brands [those until now considered legal and harmless] actually effect humans.

    It would be an utter shame if such information is not documented in some anonymous but centralized way to be considered against any subsequent testing regime that is established – fluffy tailed or straight, or Cunliffe’s office computer.

    @ciaron: Well spotted – the crash was indeed on Lap 7, and not 6. My memory is clearly not flash! 8O

    Maintaining a 0.6sec lead over Schumacher, he began lap seven and the 190mph entry into Tamburello. Watkins, sitting in his medical car as the Williams barrelled past him on the finishing straight, thought it appeared skittish and unstable, telling his driver Mario Casoni: “There’s going to be a b—– awful accident any minute.” Schumacher, likewise, instantly intuited that the car in front was not responding as it should, claiming afterwards that he noticed its chassis hit the tarmac as it rattled over the sharp bumps. What ensued defied comprehension as Senna’s car deviated not an inch on its exit from the turn, ploughing through the gravel trap at terrible speed and straight into a concrete wall.

    I am going to get totally shot for this, but it wouldn’t be the first time, so who cares?

    I do not believe that the problem is anything to do with our food – we have some really great natural and non-fattening foods.

    The problem rests with lifestyle – New Zealander’s are lazy. (yes, many other nations are lazy too, but we are talking about kiwis).

    Laziness is the problem – in how we move, how we shop, the food we eat and how we prepare that food – Kiwi women do everything the ‘easy’ or lazy way – they simply don’t move enough to absorb what they are eating (those that have weight issues).

    Perhaps Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said it best when he said:

    “Washington’s approach to the events in Ukraine is not fueled by concerns about the fate of the crisis-torn state, but rather by the desire to prove it is still running the show worldwide.

    The way the situation in Ukraine is reported in mainstream media indicates that unfortunately, the information machine of our Western colleagues is working at full capacity.

    The US is trying to shape public opinion in a specific manner because they are not concerned by the fate of Ukraine in the first place, but have strong desire to prove that it’s them who decides how things should be – always and everywhere”

    As a whole both on and off track, I completely agree. Raw talent alone though, I would say Lewis Hamilton is on par.

    Yes you are right – but that is also laziness – there are some lovely dishes you can make that taste as good as any pie or cake, but they take a bit of effort to produce – so women grab a packet of biscuits, takeaways, or whatever instead.

    Yes – you are what you eat – I know, I’m a woman, I know how easy it is to fall into that trap – and as Kea says, there is nothing worse for your self-esteem if you are a woman.

    I start everyday with a smoothie – chia seeds, LSA, kiwifruit, berries, guarana powder, and a special powder called Supagreens produced by Matakana Supafoods – it takes a bit of effort – but it works and I’m positively ‘dangerous’ on the days I make that effort – the energy is fantastic.

    On the days I can’t be bothered, and start the day with toast or worse – I can’t be bothered getting off my butt and generally as I’m low in energy on those days, I grab the easiest food for the rest of the day, which complicates the problem further.

    Oh yeah, and WHITE is bad – white sugar, white flour etc is killing us, and making us lazier – if some woman is 96kg – she got their from eating white!

    PS Fruit can be high in sugar, but you’d have to eat one hell of a lot to get to 96 kgs.

    From the Dominion Post article I mentioned above:

    According to the leaked tape, Kerry told a group of leading businessmen, diplomats, academics and politicians in Washington on Friday that the US had intercepted “conversations of intelligence operatives [in Ukraine] taking their orders from Moscow”.

    “We know exactly who’s giving those orders; we know where they are coming from.”

    Kerry added that Russia’s insistence that it was not involved in the unrest was “insulting to everybody’s intelligence.”

    After the annexation of Crimea, Putin admitted that the “little green men” seen around the place were in fact, Russian soldiers. After the annexation of Ukraine, if he’s brazen enough to do it the same way Crimea was taken over, he’ll make the same admission. I’d put money on it if I was a betting woman.

Personally, I was willing to give Russia and Putin the benefit of the doubt, despite my deep distrust (having a father who was sent off to the gulags as a child and a mother raised under communism will do that to a person), but I see with Ukraine, nothing much has changed. There’s just been a pause, while Russia recovered from the disintegration of the USSR empire, before normal activities resumed.

    Kudos to Jonathan Kay for discussing the problems of sex abuse within some ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities. If a Jew reveals to Gentiles not only the pedophilia but also the fanaticism and xenophobia of these fundamentalist communities (which sometimes are known as Haredi),

    In my view, the rise of Haredism is the worst phenomenon to occur to Jews since the Holocaust. Haredim are the fastest growing segment of Jews in Israel and the Diaspora because of their huge birthrate.

    A Jew writes:

    “Jewish communities — both in Israel and the Diaspora — sometimes are held to a lower standard. Despite emerging evidence of widespread, appalling sex abuse within fundamentalist orthodox Jewish communities, this problem gets only sporadic attention, especially compared to the massive media onslaught that accompanied the Catholic sex-abuse cases that have emerged since 2002. In part, this is because Jewish whistleblowers are shamed, harassed and effectively excommunicated.” [no shit]

    Last week, in Brooklyn, the NYPD Special Victim’s Squad arrested an ultra-Orthodox Israeli rabbi — Yakov Yitzchak Roth, of the Hasidic sect Shomrei Emunim — after it was discovered that he’d neglected to report on his U.S. visa application that he’d just served a 16-year Israeli sentence for sodomizing a child relative. This is just one of many troubling cases served up by Brooklyn’s Hasidic community in recent years. Others include Baruch Lebovits, a Hasidic cantor whose 2010 conviction on eight counts of molestation recently was overturned on technical grounds (he likely will be retried in 2014). Lebovits’ sexual habits reportedly were widely known in his community for years. But the state prosecuted him only after a Hasiddic whistleblower, Sam Kellner, went public with claims that Lebovits had groped his son. For his troubles, The New York Times reports, “Kellner found himself denounced on the street and barred from shul [synagogue]. His business suffered; [and] he pawned his silverware last year.”

    People who claim to be Christians or Jews who abuse or commit other crimes are not following the tenets of their faith.

    Haredim regard themselves as the most religiously authentic group of Jews,[3] and although this claim is contested by other streams, it is a perception which is often held in wider Jewish and non-Jewish society.[4][5]

    Haredi Judaism emerged in response to the Jewish Enlightenment (Haskalah) which had given birth to the Reform movement. In contrast to Modern Orthodox Judaism, which hastened to embrace modernity, the approach of the Haredim was to maintain a steadfast adherence to Jewish religious law by segregating itself, as much as is reasonable, from modern society.[6]

    Haredim bitterly opposed the establishment of the State of Israel and they do not celebrate its national Independence Day or other state instituted holidays, referring to them as “idolatrous.”[88][89]

I’m just one example but it’s what the intergod predicted as well. It works the other way as well. Stick to the diet – give up physical activity – gain is minimal. Diet is the big weapon. Unless you want to run double marathons each day to make activity the bigger factor.

    You can gain weight eating fruit and veg – just eat enough of it. It’s the energy equation – intake and output. Men and women. I’m picking on women because their new thing seems to be the PC touchy-feelly lets support each other being fat as anything vibe and it’s all ok. The new meme is ‘it’s not your fault your fat, and people should like you no matter how much shit you eat each day’. All these support groups giving each other permission to pork it up until they look like a disgusting waddling mass flabby slab layers of fat.

    They’re just fuckin fat slobs mate. If they cop a bit of discrimination – so bloody what.

    Sorry to fuck up GD with fat posts people . . .

    One of the most striking ironies of the Nechemya Weberman trial, which ended with his conviction on 59 counts of sexual abuse, was the revelation that the unlicensed therapist was a member of the Va’ad Hatznius, or modesty patrol, the self-appointed arbiters of right and wrong in the Satmar community.

    Although they ostensibly monitor the moral behavior of both sexes (men and women are both warned not to read English books, watch television or surf the Internet), most of their energies are directed toward ensuring that women and girls dress and behave modestly.

    I’m not really seeing that with legal highs, here in NZ. But maybe.

    Yeah, not an expert in drug taking, so will have to take your word on it.

    Maybe people have just moved onto other stuff, like here in NZ where “P” is no longer popular because of legal highs.

    I was visiting a man in a psych ward a number of years back (he’d tried to kill himself) and he told me most of the people in there were there for drug related reasons. Drugs are just evil, and laws need to reflect that and warn people away from them by virtue of their illegality. Some, unfortunately, will ignore that, but most won’t.

    I think it’s just sad that someone with all the advantages fell victim to a drug. Such a waste of a life.

    I remember reading a while back when the US tried to clamp down on the poppy trade in Afganistan, there was a huge protest from the country about their lucrative trade and what else were they going to do, if not sell poppies for heroin. Don’t know what came of it. Poppies a such cool flowers, too, and their seeds make the most amazing cakes.

    Obama’s efforts to “stop it” included a 300% escalation in Afghanistan. I have another idea. Bring their people home to rebuild America. That just might stop the war. If mobs of Afghan Goat Herders suddenly turn up in Kansas threatening people then they can be dealt with in the harshest way. But they have never attacked anyone outside of their tribal borders.

    The Afghans will then amuse themselves with inter clan/tribe conflicts as they always have.

    ‘Peaches is coming over and I’m going to inject for the first time. Perhaps I will die': Parents reveal teenage son’s words before his drug overdose death

    For his grieving parents, the diary entry made by their son Freddy just a few months before he died serves as a recurring nightmare that will haunt them until the day they die.
    Scrawled in teenage handwriting, it reads: ‘Peaches is coming over later and I am going to inject for the first time. Perhaps I will die. I hope I don’t.’

    Two weeks ago, Freddy was found dead of an overdose at his flat in London at the age of just 18. Around him lay the squalid detritus of the typical addict: the syringes, the needles and the foils.

    ….Then, recently, Freddy formed a friendship with Peaches Geldof, the 22-year-old, wild-child daughter of Sir Bob Geldof.

    Weight watchers. Avoid that devilish temptation to nibble at the chocolate bar in the cupboard or fridge by not buying the fucking thing in the first place, you fat bastards.

    Housewives: When nipping out to the shops, remember to carry a stiff broom in the boot of your car. Use it to sweep the broken glass to the side of the road every time you have a minor accident.

    Girls. Too old to go on an 18 to 30 holiday? Simply get pissed,lie in a sandpit in your garden and shag every bloke who looks at you over the fence.

    http://dollarvigilante.com/blog/2014/4/30/as-the-supreme-court-considers-warrantless-cell-phone-search.html

    Americans really are so terribly naive. Basically mentally handicapped. It is laughable how easy it is to distract them…but, also, depressing.

    “It is political science 101 that the coverage of this story is a distraction. It is being used to distract YOU! Have you tweeted or Facebooked how this guy should have the book thrown at him!? Well, in that case, you fell for the psy-op! It is very silly that so many people have taken this story seriously or paid any attention to it at all. It only goes to show how mentally wasted most everyone in the US is.

    It is humorous to watch the American media and so many people get all up in arms over the private comments, which were recorded with him not knowing, in the wake of the National Security Agency scandal. What the NSA does (spy ubiquitously) has been accepted by the American psyche. Privacy has met its end in the USSA. And now Americans can get aroused by spying on the rich.

    Are there more important things for the American people to be concerned about? Obviously.

    The growing police state is taking innocent life after innocent life (including pets), gun shops are being closed via capital controls, the US has sent troops to eastern Europe as a possible World War III type scenario unfolds and so on and so forth. Still, people are so easily distracted by the bread-and-circus show put on by the mainstream media…..

    My point being, the Sterling case is a distraction. This is very basic stuff to understand. That is what the media is for. And by the way, the mainstream media is also on the internet. You have to go out of your way, even on the internet, to find reliable sources. The more of our energy we spend on the sick people in our society, like Sterling AND his girlfriend, the sicker we also become. The time is now to let go of what Albert Einstein called “out there.” Look inwards and ignore the noise”

    (1) I’d honestly never heard of Peaches Geldof before her death. You can’t keep up with all the celebrities, let alone all the celebrity offspring. They’ve got to be big stars in their own right. It looks like she was more well known in the Uk than she was by Nzders . . no ?

    You judge celebrity hierarchy by how well known they are.

    It’s no surprise that people with money and connections have substance abuse issues. Maybe they think nothing bad can happen to them because they’re rich and famous ? I would say that if I had millions certainly I’m more likely to experiment with drugs. If you’re caught with drugs and a celeb – what happens ? Not a lot. You can afford lawyers – everything is taken care of – you don’t have worry about how it will affect your job or family so much. You’re in a position of relative safety to live the lifestyle. Of course they don’t sit drawing up a list of pros and cons like that – haha.

    (2) nasska – you jest about not buying junk therefore you won’t eat it – I could write a blog about that kind of thing. I’ve thrown chocolate blocks out – bags of baking ingredients out – and I had to keep baking ingredients in my shed. If I look at them – I’m running possibilities for cooking. Or keep one key ingredient missing. For biscuits – no sugar for eg. I’ve got no table sugar or sugar of any sort on my property at this time. I love everything – but it’s the only way.

    Also – all my meal options require serious prep time. Porridge / chicken / veg. If you’re a lazy useless fucktard like me, you use it to your advantage. Want to eat biscuits ? You have to fucking bake them mate. Want extra chicken ? There’s a 60-90 minute waiting time mate. Currently not allowing anything that’s instant. I’m not eating anything that doesn’t come with a delay or some kind of prep required. The closest thing to a quick fix is shaved carrot / tinned tomato microwaved in a soup mug. Even my tin opener doesn’t work and I’m lucky to get ring-pulls – yep – I’ve thought of everything.

    I was at pak n save and left behind ‘extra low’ that day raspberry buns 9 pack $2. Has anyone got any fucking idea just how much pain is involved in that much wrong ? Weight management trap #23 – buying crap on markdown. It’s a lovely trap though . . . mmmmm
