    I see that the NSW Premier & other ‘Officials’ are calling for a music concert, in Western Sydney to be shut down in future (& others too ?) because there were TWO DRUG-related deaths & others in hospital.. 70 arrests for DRUG possession & 10 arrests for DRUG DEALING.
    BUT; No actual details of what ILLEGAL DRUGS were actually involved !

    Interestingly; 1000s die annually from Alcohol-related deaths, but I dont hear calls for similar action to outlaw or deal with it in this way

    What is really going on here ?
    Echoes of ‘Reefer Madness’.. perhaps ??

    Drugs.. DRUGS… ZERO-TOLERANCE to DRUGS, Harsher Penalties for DRUGS !!!

    oh dear… 😦
