Professor Neil McKeganey of human rights abusing Glasgow University comes out anti legalisation of drugs; he lives off the carcass of human misery

Dear All

The issue of controlling the drugs problem is very simple, legalise drugs, now that the debate is generating more interest, people are now throwing in their ‘two cents’ worth.

A slight shift is the latest piece of nonsense by Professor Roger Pertwee of Aberdeen University who says that drugs users who smoke cannabis should apply for a licence.

Pertwee is described as one of Britain’s leading experts on the drug.

Here is some free advice for him, grow up son.

Pertwee trots out the point that by making cannabis as available as alcohol this would prevent drug-related crime; this isn’t entirely true because the whole drug market must be tackled to effect that change.

Cannabis legalised in isolation won’t do it.

On the licensing issue he states:

“You have a car licence and a dog licence; why not a cannabis licence?”

Why not an alcohol licence and tobacco licence?

Patently Pertwee doesn’t grasp the problem entirely, why should the state have a record of your medical history beyond the NHS?

None of their business!

Organised crime has a stranglehold on the drugs market because of the ineffective measures introduced by politicians.

Politicians therefore are stumbling block; this issue is ping pong politics which stems from ‘tough on crime, tough on the causes of crime’.

It is time to be smart on crime.

Another ill-thought-out point is that he thinks that says that those not suffering from a serious mental illness or at risk of psychosis would be legally allowed to buy the drug.

Those excluded will use criminals to supply the drugs making the licence scheme null and void.

The privacy issue also torpedos the licence scheme as well.

One of the people who lives of the misery of drugs users is Professor Neil McKeganey, professor of drug misuse research at the human rights abusing Glasgow University.

He says the proposal for a licence was “profoundly unhelpful”, he wants the current status quo to continue.

That way people like McKeganey can get large grants from the Scottish Government and others to continue his cushy lifestyle.

Drugs should be legalised, the drugs market should be wrestled away from criminals and the money generated ploughed back into help drug users and others.

People like Pertwee and McKeganey don’t get it, which is rather strange given they have spent decades studying drugs and the people who use them.

The time for change is now and the change is legalisation.

I would agree with your comments on neil mackeganey who in march 2010 allowed his team to give VIA a dvd presented by Prof Phil Hanlon a distorted representation of the issue of drug dependency at an enquiry termed "Independent Enquiry into Maximising the Recovery from Dependent Drug Use in Scotland‏"
at this enquiry Phil Hanlon attempted to distort the issue of DRUG DEPENDENCY by only addressing the issue of STREET DRUGS excluding all prescription drugs from what he described as "THE VISION" these self proclaimed visionaries and drug gurus have proved themselves to be bigger menaces than the gangsters that control the illegal drug trade when Hanlon gave this distorted veiw of addiction he trashed all GU research on this issue leaving as worthless NHS/Government propaganda The bottom line with these academics is that they write worthless papers on a subject they have no understanding on however I would be wary of drug legalisation which could result in approximately 40% of Scotland being addicted
