All they have left is the absence of a message DrugWarRant / Pete Guither / 12,17,2010 How pathetic is that? Policies based on no facts, no reality, and ultimately the only active thing they've got to promote is advocating for the lack of a message. After former defence secretary Bob Ainsworth called for legalizing drugs, what did the Labour leader have to say? Did he have a critique of the facts? Another proposal? No. Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, said today that the legalisation of drugs would send out â€œthe wrong messageâ€ to young people as he distanced himself from a Labour backbencher's calls for a â€œgrown-up debateâ€ on the issue. He's not interested in facts. He's not interested in what impact policy would actually have on young people. He just wantsâ€¦ the absence of a message. How about our drug czar? â€œWe have been telling young people, particularly for the past couple years, that marijuana is medicine,â€ the former Seattle police chief argued. â€œSo it shouldn't be a great surprise to us that young people are now misperceiving the dangers or the risks around marijuana.â€ Not interested in facts, or in explaining to young people the difference between medical and recreational use, or regulating use, or anything else, except that he just wantsâ€¦ the absence of a message. â€œLegalization is not in the president's vocabulary, and it's not in mine,â€ he said. That's right - no coherent argument against legalization, except that he just wantsâ€¦ the absence of a message. They're completely out-gunned when it comes to the facts and they have nothing to show for all their years of prohibition. They're bankrupt and can't even generate a message. All they have left is to try to shut us up. They've progressed from pushing â€œJust Say Noâ€ to pushing â€œJust Say Nothing.â€ Pathetic. â€¦.. And it won't work.
