Crackdown on drug pushers

POLICE launched a crackdown on pushers bringing drugs into Winchester yesterday.

Hampshire Police and British Transport Police carried out the operation at Winchester railway station.

Twelve officers, six from each force, were at the scene with two sniffer dogs from 10am-2pm inspecting people at the gates.

There were 12 stop and searches, with two street warnings given out for possession of cannabis.

It was part of a wider month-long anti-drugs operation, with the station targeted based on intelligence that drugs were being brought into Winchester by train.

Only one way to combat the war on drugs. Make them free to users while they are treated and take the money out of the dealers pocket while reducing associated crime. The first polictician to have the guts to enable this process will get massive support.

street warning?

Thats like saying: Go give your dealer more money. We dont care. But no, we wont let you sell it legaly. That would mean the big fish involved would have to start paying tax.

Would the EU not object? Our government can't **** without asking permission from EU first.

Maybe the EU would object, maybe the whole worldwide political movement would object, I have no expectation it will ever happen,sadly.
No argument over EU constraints (or our bloated contributions) though. Perhaps that bloating has contributed to our retained wind!!
