The War on Drugs in England & Wales is a Scandal via laws for substance “mis-use”.
An attack on human rights of LGBTIQ+ individuals via the legal loophole.
Attempting to cure British LGBTIQ+ “broken” brains involuntarily under this questionable law act which also involves non-consenting Conversion Therapy.
Recreational drug users are being targeted and indexed by police for drug use unknowingly under The Crime and Disorder (Formulation and Implementation of Strategy) Regulations 2007 Act. Losing their right to have a personal and family life as written in our law.
Authorities in England and Wales have invested in technology and human resources to seek to hunt and destroy good people’s lives recklessly and without apology. Placed without caution or charge under a Criminal Law Act for Substance Misuse.
Their entire digital life including dating apps will be hi-jacked unknowingly and placed under surveillance. This technology is also a part of the dark-web. The dark-web contrary to perceptions given by the media is government enforced.
The government supported dark-web is the reason why the long-awaited porn legislation reforms are continually delayed for unspecified reasons by the government. It’s a huge network of the dark-web, funded by worldwide anti-drug governments and their strategic worldwide partners.
Partners include conservative Christian organisations with their own agendas against LGBTIQ+ peoples. Agendas that include that LGBTIQ+ peoples be cured of their “dysfunctional brains”. This is soul destroying when place upon a good conscience that spent a lifetime discovering themselves and rising strong from prejudice and bigotry.
Cambridge Analytica and its government connections were just the tip of the “iceberg”. Cambridge Analytica was just one company of hundreds if not thousands now who specialise in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) digital platforms. Platforms designed to discriminate and incriminate by unjustifiable and sometimes immoral means when it comes to the so-called war on drugs.
According to the British Medical Journal (bmj.com) in 2018 the war on drugs costs each UK taxpayer an estimated £400 a year. The UK is now the world’s largest exporter of legal cannabis, yet recreational and medicinal use are criminalised. Scotland has the EU’s highest rate of drug related deaths, double that of 10 years ago. The global trade in illicit drugs is worth £236bn, but this money fuels organised crime and human misery. Why should it not instead fund public services?
Despite what one’s view on drugs are, we all must face the facts. An increasing number of countries and states within the USA are either legalising or decriminalising recreational drugs with success. Not only removing stigma for recreational users but working transparently and openly for any mis-use. Not only making communities safer and more tolerant but raising potentially billions of dollars in revenue for education, harm reduction and other programmes.
Arguably England and Wales are frozen in the dark ages with successive governments when it comes to drug reform. Just at the beginning of 2019 Ms May’s government refused (again) to place the decimalisation of drugs on the table for discussion. It is time to listen to the scientist, doctors and politicians to debate based on facts (rather than fear) whether to be a progressive country.
Their unwillingness is absolutely because policing currently is too heavily invested into technology to contain drug use by citizens they index without caution or charge. What they do instead is to index, recklessly place under surveillance and research to manipulate their habits. This often worsens recreation use and can lead to addiction. This policy is creating more mental health issues, destroying that person’s life and creating a further burden on the taxpayer.
This unwillingness to discuss and debate drug use allows Police to continue to ignore fundamental human values. Human values such as honesty, transparency and liberties with citizens. If the police are not happy with a person’s drug use, they should be cautioned or charged transparently so that person can make some life decisions about their lifestyle choice. Some citizens would have a transparent choice to move to another country where recreational use is legal or decriminalised.
The police from research have shown they are desperate and very arguably out of control on the issue of drug use in general. Successive governments of both Labour and Conservatives since this parliamentary Criminal Law Bill passed in 2007 has proven from this research that they have no clue when it comes to substances, their good effects and how to deal with any “problems” transparently.
Playing technology driven mind-games with people on substances leads to worse mental health. Citizens are left to deal with their trauma of being digitally manipulated.
From research, recreational drugs if used correctly in leisure time can help a busy productive lifestyle. They also are now proven to help PTSD as well as autism-spectrum. There is a lot to debate.
Lord Brian Paddick, the former police commander had a progressive approach but arguably he was forced out (and possibly under-handily) in 2002 by more conservative opinions in the direction of the war on drugs. Former Police Commander Paddick would argue you cannot ignore the opinions and case studies by medical experts as well as scientists and other community experts.
The Crime and Disorder (Formulation and Implementation of Strategy) Regulations 2007 Act is a nonsense that allows the police to hi-jack without caution or charge a recreational drug user’s life.
Here’s the legal enforcement in law for recreational drug users:
- Firstly we have the Crime and Disorder Act 1998
- (a) You’ll then fall under: The Crime and Disorder (Formulation and Implementation of Strategy) Regulations 2007 Take note on the last page “Section 5 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (“the 1998 Act”) gives certain public authorities in local government areas functions relating to the reduction of crime and disorder and the combating of substance misuse. Collectively these authorities are known as Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs)”
- You’ll lose some of your Human Rights (but not be told by authorities)
- In particular, you’ll lose your right to a private personal and family life under Article 8.
- Your less-liberal neighbours and wider community will be engaged and invited by authorities to stage a stealth intervention into your life, well over your moral and personal boundaries.
Here’s how it works in practice, enforced without caution or charge by the police:
The police place recreational users under surveillance under “substance mis-use” and enrol them unknowingly and without consent into Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) and with Community Safety Partnerships (CSPs). This is normally a fully functioning citizen (but a recreational drug user) that is working full time and sometime self-employed and/or with their own company. Paying taxes and being a responsible citizen. All citizens are reliant on knowing their self-determined boundaries, especially if you an entrepreneur.
The police indexed citizen will have their entire digital, an ultra-smart hub if you like of their home appliances and electricals, thermostats, computers, vehicles and other mobile devices. This system of surveillance is made intelligent by digital cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) something that tech companies such as Cambridge Analytica and Microsoft are known for. There are many other software companies around the world that specialise in this type of technology and will develop their own platform versions and apps within Microsoft, Facebook, Airbnb, Internet TV, Cable TV etc.
This starts out as a dishonest and immoral, involuntary unpaid human slave research at best. But as the citizen starts to realise things just aren’t quite right soon their life will spiral because they will start to investigate and use recreational drugs as their medication for the hurt that their digital life is not quite right. This use will turn to inconsolable addiction very soon.
What CDRPs and CSPs do guarantee is eventually self-exclusion from family, friends and from their local communities. The CDRP’s will enlist community policing do-gooders to help that person lose their recreational drug habits. The “do-gooders” are peoples within their communities and neighbours. These “do-gooders” who hate the thought of drugs within the community because of what they are told and what they see in the media and by the CDRP’s and CSP’s. They have no experience with recreational drugs but see them a threat to their family and the wider community.
For a recreational drug users’ point of view this is utter nonsense which places a stigma on that person as a bad person. The community actions will force the user to eventually leave their home, or worse, inflict self-harm or end their own life,
The Netherlands has been working with soft drugs for over 30 years. They have embraced recreational use in order to stop citizens acquiring harder drugs. Portugal followed the Netherlands in 2001 and since they have seen a fall in deaths, HIV infection were almost halved and other STD’s have also decreased. Other countries in South America and states within the USA with similar results over the past decade. More countries and states within the USA are currently considering legalising or decriminalising recreational drugs. Working with drugs works, it is proven.
Whilst here in England & Wales are doing the opposite and creating multiple fold more mental health problems than it is solving by this policy. Add the social media platforms authorities hi-jack by internal “Apps” for that person – devastating at the very least for that person.
Police also enrolling caught drug dealers into these policy (but secret) schemes – but only stocking harder drugs, or the range of drugs not of choice for that person under surveillance.
This is madness policy; the police are allowing police-enforced drug dealers to be the worse of worse of drug dealers. Stocking harder drugs and not stocking the individual’s drugs of choice, softer drugs like MDMA/Ecstasy and its absolutely wrong policy.
If police have grievances with any citizens, they need to engage face to face. Not this community policing model which is a web of disaster within our communities.
Categorically, drugs are not the problem; it is law and enforcement’s lack of knowledge on substances and their effects is the problem. This law enforcement policy is creating chaos for users and severe mental health issues for the recreational drug users that they have indexed under the crime disorder act.
By far most recreational drug users know how to respect the substances they take. These adults know how to handle their drugs of choice. But if authorities start to get involved to supply of drugs “undercover” then that is dangerous for the recreational drug users.
A common argument for not legalising or discrimination is that recreational drugs are a gateway to harder drugs. The reality is that harder drugs can be also controlled by the human brain by experienced users.
It is when bureaucracy departments interfere with the usage for the user without cautioning the user. This can turn to harder drug use and inconsolable addiction because authorities are not being entirely honest, including the NHS when that addict then goes for help. Users require transparency.
Arguably, addiction only comes from trauma, not the drugs themselves. Some drugs are addictive, some more than others but arguably one needs a trauma to become addicted. Some traumas are being caused from government policy to recreational drug use.
The Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) and other more local Community Safety Partnerships (CSP’s) are creating trauma, mental health issues and suicide.
Queue Liberal Democrats, The British Medical Journal and other experts on substances to lead the discussion and debate into decriminalisation of all drugs and legalisation of recreational drugs. Sensible and realistic policy for the safety and well-being of the wider community.
