This is a question The Police II

Enzyme asks: Have you ever been arrested? Been thrown down the stairs by the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad, with hi-LAR-ious consequences? Or maybe you're a member of the police force with chortlesome anecdotes about particularly stupid people you've encountered.
Do tell.

Shoulda got their facts straight.
My mate used to live at 6 Cathcart Crescent, a local hash dealer used to live at 6 Cartha Crescent (which is just round the corner). One day in 1996 the DS show up at my mates house with a search warrant. After the mistake is realised my mate is straight on the blower "Ross get everything to fuck, DS on way to yours, give you full story later. Police found nothing. I wonder if this kind of mistake is common? Not a particularly funny story but Ross is a good guy who always gave decent sized bits, so it was great to see the police mess up their bust.

It would have been better to see your drug dealer friend get arrested.

Smack and crack all over this country but you'd target hash dealers. Nice...

Yes, let's all pick and choose what laws we want to obey.

Fight against the laws you do not want. It's your world fuck nuts.

It's ok to drink your drug but smoking a plant that grows naturally is bad?

It's the law
Whether you consider it right or wrong is irrelavant.
Have a chat to your bungee MP if you'd like to see it change.

Mmmmm because the law...
is a perfect, infallable system and we should all blindly obey, or talk to our MP's. Obviously the only sensible solutions.

Some laws are unjust
and should be disobeyed if the government refuses to repeal or reform.

I'm not saying Nazis, but you know, "Nazis".

Would imagine he & his colleagues are too afraid
of front page of Daily Heil - see class B/C fiasco for proof. Despite the fact that only ~5% of people have genetic susceptibility to develop psychosis, and only if they smoke highest THC strains heavily, frequently from a young age. Dutch mental hospitals aren't full.

No, Dutch mental hospitals aren't full
for the simple reason the baseline mentalistness of the Dutch is much higher than here, because they smoke weed, which is why they pass crazy laws like allowing weed to be freely sold and smoked, despite the fact it is fucking them up to the point they don't know what constitutes crazy anymore, and aren't locking up all the mentalisms they should be.

That is such bollocks.
Dutch law seems founded on tolerance - a 'What harm does it do? If we can't eliminate it, let's minimise it.' principle (Maybe a history of religious intolerance, war, colonialism & Nazi occupation have something to do with that?) If you go there and act like a twat; pissed, lairy, etc you will get nicked. If you're not hurting anyone, you won't. Even to the point where you're walking around barefoot with one huge dreadlock where your head used to be, talking to pigeons.
By the same token, in the UK, unless you are a credible & serious risk to yourself or someone else, you have no chance of getting an NHS psychiatric bed, no matter how shitty you may be feeling.
The vast majority of Dutch people work hard in regular jobs, raise kids/good citizens,pay tax & health insurance (another factor, to be fair) and their idea of a good night out is 3 hours in a restaurant/brown cafe - gezellig. Most don't, or hardly, smoke. Accurate, rather than scaremongering, education or larcenous taxation, along with consideration for others, make for a much saner society in many ways, not least in matters of substance use; one of the best places to be gay, disabled or otherwise different, Pim Fortuyn et al notwithstanding.

I just know the streets. My gran used to live in Cartha Crescent way back in the early eighties. Proper shithole, absolutely hated going there to visit. I did shit in one of the high flat lifts one time though, it seemed like the only way I could actualise my hate of having to go there and stay for days on end.
(, Sat 7 May 2011, 12:14, closed)
could've written a cutting sociopolitical comment on the lift door, rather than shattering your own dignity and other people's peace of mind by having a shit in there.

Give me Hunterhill over Feegie Park any day.
