No-brainer

Doctors from London University have revealed details of what they believe is the largest amount of ecstasy ever consumed by a single person. Consultants from the addiction centre at St George's Medical School, London, have published a case report of a British man estimated to have taken around 40,000 pills of MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, over nine years.
So which member of the Happy Mondays are we talking about? One factor that is not considered in drugs policy is that Ecstasy is very popular amongst members of the Moron Community, although expert opinion is divided as to whether it is the drugs that make them stupid or their stupidity that makes them takes the drugs. One thing is certain: nobody has ever managed to enjoy House music straight.

Meanwhile, Her Majesty's Government's drugs advisor has been sacked for advising Her Majesty's Government about drugs. It seems that he made the mistake of telling the truth rather than sending a Clear Message about the dangers of drugs.

Meanwhile again, the squaddies are all over Afghanistan but cannot stop a bunch of peasants from growing most of the world supply of opium there.

Who needs drugs? The world is strange enough without them.

Yes we are, unless we are hard of thinking Mail readers, very angry about the cavalier way scientific evidence, truth and the speaking of it has been treated by the stupid Home Office Secretary. I have given my voice against it with many others on divers forums and have even been moved to email the said stupid man (in polite terms, of course).

The problem of course is that there is no credible party promising rational and evidence based drugs policy, so the Mail has a veto and we have a gross democratic deficit.

While I agree with you that people you wish to meet are not ecstasy users it should still be a right to take them, if only they could be sure of the dose and what else or instead is in them.

It is a matter of harm reduction, a great proportion of the harm drugs do is secondary to their being illegal.

Drugs policy is just new Puritanism, oh no! someone is having fun, this must be stopped.

It might even lead to dancing!

NZ SAS are in Afghanistan fighting the poppy growers.

Meanwhile, they're trialing growing it in NZ. Yeah, it makes sense to me too...

It is possible to listen to house music while not under the influence of ecstasy, but you have to have destroyed your brain on e or coke beforehand.

I did read a study a few years ago that claimed to show that music beats got faster in association with the rise in ecstasy consumption. The idea was that we like music that chimes with our heartbeats and on ecstasy your heart rate goes up. Far more than on alchohol where it tends more to pound than increase in rate or on weed which relaxes you.

That may explain why I like my music slower as I have a much slower heartbeat than the textbooks reckon I should have for my size. It gets even slower when I am properly fit. Prior to my recent bout of swine flu it was 41 on waking in the morning.

This reminds me of Robert Shnackenberg's revelations about Louisa May Alcott viz that the author of Little Women considered the March saga 'moral pap for children.' Furthermore, said abolitionist and suffragist icon was also an opiate fiend, although taking laudanum to offset mercury poisoning administered to combat pneumonia.
