13 Mar Theresa May Talks ‘Tough’ On Drugs But Is Weak On The Most Dangerous Drug Of All
Theresa May is probably the most dangerous woman in Britain. She is responsible for our disastrous drugs policy which kills more than 120,000 people every year.
Most of those are cigarette smokers. Depending on how exactly you define cause of death, between 8,000 and 30,000 of them are alcohol users. There are about 1000 deaths each year due to opiates, 100 – 200 for cocaine and fewer than 100 each for speed and ecstasy. None for cannabis. It’s worth pointing out that there are also about 1000 deaths due to paracetamol each year. Source: Drugscope.
Despite this conclusive evidence, Theresa May refuses to regulate tobacco and alcohol under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and endlessly repeats her inane mantra:
“Drugs are illegal because they are dangerous – they destroy lives and blight communities.”
But she doesn’t apply that to tobacco and alcohol. Today it has become clear that she has sabotaged the proposal to introduce minimum unit pricing on alcohol, a measure that is conclusively proven to reduce harm.
Professor David Nutt said last year that legal regulation of cannabis could reduce alcohol consumption by up to 25%. This would transform public health in Britain and provide massively more resources for the NHS.
Can anyone really doubt that Theresa May, many members of the cabinet and MPs are in the pocket of the alcohol industry?
Our political leaders are the most despicable hypocrites who have no real regard whatsoever for our health. Their only concerns are political expediency and lining their own pockets. Theresa May is very possibly the worst of them all. She is engaged in actively causing harm to the people of Britain.
