    That's really something what you say, Kevin, the disparity in how drug users get looked at by the authorities. Certainly nothing new though, be it drug possession or other crimes.

    My plan, which wont ever be adopted, is to stop spending money on drugs.

    Entirely. Shit can the welfare state and drug enforcement. It would work!
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Nope, Darwinism.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    It would work Jim. But the drug "problem" is just another way for Sam to turn a buck, as you know. I mean, how do you think heroin and cocaine get here in the first place?

    After we invaded and destroyed an entire country, Afghanistan, (looking for one man) opium production tripled in the first year of our occupation.

    Oh yeah, almost forgot, God bless America.

    Never said make hard drugs legal. Only weed.

    Seen too many heroin junkies in Copenhagen to have anything good to say about that shit.

    I'm all for free cannabis, while I don't hold it to be harmless, the amount of effort and money spent trying to keep it out of the hands of users is completely out of proportion to the little damage that it does.

    Andrey, I read an article that the tensions are already starting to ease a bit in your country......is that the case?

    Word on the street is that Russia will cut military spending this up coming year, and that your reporters are to scale back the Anti-American rhetoric.

    I hope my country will do the same.

    France looks like it'll be getting a Russia friendly president, so I think there is hope for a cooler attitude between east and west ahead.
