Party pills banned

Party pills bannedParty pills are to be banned, Associate Health Minister Jim Anderton has announced. BZP and related party pills, also known as herbal highs, will be classified as a Class C1 drug. This will stop the legal manufacture and sale… [NZ Politics]

Looks like the fun police have struck again…..once again a silly law to protect fools from themselves. This will of course fail.

Given the reasons for doing this supposedly are to save lives, one wonders when they are going to ban cigarettes and motor vehicles.

Jim Anderton clearly is cloud cuckoo land if he thinks that making BZP illegal will not create a black market or lead to increased use of other drugs such as methamphetamine.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
