They are talking about legalizing medical pot; only the big boys will have a license to grow it.. Otherwise if you get a piss test and found positive
off to a very unsatisfactory jail. By the time your case is heard you have gotten used to a very overcrowded jail cell with the other 40/60 inmates in
a cell that was meant to hold 10 at most. The big news items are not so much pot as someone is usually captured a couple of times a month with a
zillion meth pills they are bringing into country. They are locked up and the key is thrown away or they are executed.
Needless to say I have not seen or smelled drug use for over 10 years in this country. The last news item was some Dude sniffed glue went paranoid and
took a club to some Chinese tourist and bloodied them up.. They survived and he is in jail without anymore glue..
Friends that have been back to the Philippians have said the place is now cleaned up beyond anyone/s wildest dreams as far as drug use. Some are even
talking about moving back as the crime rate has dropped along with the elimination of the drugs and the pushers..
I think most of southeast Asia is pretty hard on drugs as far as the laws are concerned yet I have no doubt if someone wants something it is
available.. The question then becomes, "do you feel lucky" ?
I grew up in the 60s playing in a band in the states.. None of us used drugs other than drinking alcohol; most of us grew up and other than the
occasional social drink leave that stuff alone also ... Fast forward several years as each of us went our own way. Our lead singer got hooked up with
a pretty girl who was nothing but a hard core pot head.. He became one also along with other stuff after his stent in the Navy.. What a wasted life he
ended up with IMO..but his life his choice. Natural selection is alive and well IMO.
So bottom line for me is when or if the drugs start flowing freely around here I will vote with my feet and move to another country.. I have no
patience for anyone whose main goal is to find their next fix or hit..
