We deserve the spike in synthetic cannabis deaths don’t we?
Remember all the screaming from John Campbell & Duncan Garner who were so instrumental in getting synthetic cannabis made illegal after Parliament passed the Psychoactive Substances Act?
Where’s John and Duncs now we have the very predictable spike in deaths from synthetic cannabis?
Consider the beauty of our counter productive synthetic cannabis cluster fuck.
- We had an industry that agreed to regulate itself.
- We had law passed that was enlightened.
- The politicians started freaking out and dragging their feet over the pet lobby group screaming about animal rights to stop animal testing.
- That put on hold any testing regime which allowed rogue traders to enter the market and sell product that was 400 times more powerful than what was originally being sold.
- People started having terrible times on the unregulated products.
- The media whipped it up into a lynch mob.
- Politicians became cowards, shut the whole thing down and made it illegal again.
- Market was driven underground.
- Massive spike in deaths.
Slow clap NZ, we deserve this.
The real madness, there wouldn’t be any synthetic cannabis issues if we legalised actual cannabis.
The truth is that while it’s poor brown people dying from synthetic cannabis sweet bugger all will be done. The second white middle class kids start dying, watch how quickly society will move.
We are a juvenile culture that plays to our fears and anger.
