    Angry RTE's Crimeline

    About a fortnight ago, I was watching crimeline and became shocked and horrified.
    They revealed CCTV footage from a headshop 'fire'. It showed two masked individuals enter the shop,
    force staff and customers into the back of the shop (this particular shop had no fire exit through the back).
    They then proceded to pour petrol all over the shop and then ignited it before exiting the shop.
    Thankfully, the brave victims were able to run through the flames to safety, however at least one recieved some burns.

    OK, who did'nt/does'nt like these shops? Who were the masked individuals? Concerned parents? Frustrated Gardai?
    I suggest they were hired arsonists/social filth working for traditional/future drug providers.

    So now, the visible fact of drug popularity has been some what thwarted-most of the shops are
    closed since the ban. But what is going on underground now and by whom? Personally, I enjoy Cannabis,
    but even if you've never used drugs or hate all of them (including two of the worst- alcohol and tobacco)
    you must realise that the mis-informed Gardai and government have empowered/ played into the hands of the
    most dangerous people.

    My philosophy is that doing something good is always good, forget about trying to get clever and analyse long-term things that might never happen. If you're doing as you suggest it's like giving in.

    What you're suggesting is a kind of supposedly "good" corruption, that you would appease these headshop bastards and their drugs to try to hit the drug dealers, but I don't believe it works like that.

    It's appeasing one thing for some alleged other reason, that can get this really messed up in the long-term. The headshops should have been closed either way.

    You too are misinformed. The misuse of drugs act 1971, has failed every day of its existance, because
    everyone who wants drugs can get them. The issue is, how can we reduce any harm and prevent
    the criminal element from organising/profiting from this inevitable, worldwide situation.

    Is it any coincidence that muggings/attacks on the vulnerable in the vicinity of headshops has decreased dramatically , something in the region of 200% since the new laws came into force ?
    I have no signature at the moment

    This could be propaganda from the frustrated/old-fashioned Gardai.
    With CCTV, surely the competent Gardai could have accosted these criminal customers?
    Where will the muggings move to now? Head shop's cocaine substitute was half the price of the street material.
    Just does not add up!

    The reason prohibtion is not working is the penalties are too low
    Drug dealers should be shot and junkies interred and dryed out
    Each junkie should should be given three chances after that the firing squad
    Problem solved, cheap and effective
    We could create a paradise on earth.

    On Sky news this evening they showed a report from Shanghai, They showed a plethora of busy labs/factories
    and smiling business people; assuring the reporters that they had anticipated the UK/ROI
    ban and now planned to blitz these markets with new products through the internet. I could post numerous
    links to these sites here, but I feel that unnessesary.
