Bloke in Germany August 21, 2019 at 7:22 am Do they have any idea what the carbon footprint of cocaine is? Boganboy August 21, 2019 at 7:42 am True, if they took enough of them, they wouldn’t bother us any more. Stonyground August 21, 2019 at 7:43 am Oh yes, please let it happen. Come on you useful idiots you know that you want to. MC August 21, 2019 at 7:49 am I believe this already happens at counter cultural events such as ‘Glasto’ and ‘the weekend’. BiG – I don’t think coke is a psychedelic. Homegrown weed and mushrooms would be the green choice. Although I understand that in the cause of raising awareness, inconsistencies about carbon footprint don’t matter. Mark August 21, 2019 at 8:03 am Can we provide the drugs? Rob August 21, 2019 at 8:29 am “I would support a mass civil disobedience where we take medicine to tell the state that they have absolutely no right to control our consciousness and to define our spiritual practice,” I’d hazard a guess that this is one of the few, if only, instances where she doesn’t want the State to have control over people. Anyway, “in protest at criminalisation” raised my hopes – but alas, it was drugs that was criminalised. rhoda klapp August 21, 2019 at 9:00 am And if he tries to control MY consciousness by lying in the road, I can run him over for disrespecting my rights, right?

Mr Womby August 21, 2019 at 10:35 am I wonder if that clinic in Switzerland does Click & Collect? Hector Drummond, Vile Novelist August 21, 2019 at 10:59 am Quote: She travelled to Costa Rica to have the “mystical experience” taking psychedelic substances used by South American tribes including Iboga, a type of tree bark, Kambo, a frog medicine, and Ayahuasca, psychedelic tea made from a vine. “There was a moment during my Iboga experience where I lay down and a voice that felt very external to me said: ‘Gail, you create your own reality.’ It spoke three times. It sounds so simple but right there and then I thought ‘OK then, I’ll be happy.’ “That was the essence of my entire experience, after which I could literally feel my brain being rewired. When I got home I ended a marriage and separated my family [she has two sons]. It was a huge decision, but it was the right thing to do and I am a stronger and happier person now.” Ms Bradbrook, a mother of two who lives with another XR co-founder Simon Bramwell in Stroud, said the psychedelic medicines were “opportunities to help us shift our consciousness.” End quote. If her brain is so liberated then why is is she talking in the most cliched possible way about drugs? This is literally lifted straight out of thousand novels and films.. Martin August 21, 2019 at 11:35 am If encouraging mass ingestion of drugs publicly then makes it so much easier to jail the person when people are ill or die as a result of following instruction. Hector Drummond, Vile Novelist August 21, 2019 at 12:21 pm Personally, I like to get wasted on meths when I do public protests. I’m convinced it means I get taken more seriously. Mr Ecks August 21, 2019 at 12:44 pm I wonder if we could pay Jamaican ganstas to take them all to Jamaica as slaves? Collar the lot while they are drugged up. When they wake up they are chained up slaves working on a drug-growing plantation in Old Jamaici–with brutal black owners and black overseers. That way we get cash in exchange for being rid of the marxist eco-freak scum while they get the connection with drugs, slavery and punishment for (non-existent) white guilt that they want. Win-win I’d say. Pcar August 21, 2019 at 10:51 pm @Mark Can “we”? Yes, plod has large stashes of drugs. Will “we”? No Should “we”? Yes . @Mr Ecks August 21, 2019 at 12:44 pm Pay them to take as slaves? Ideally sell, but illegal Give them via a DfID 1 way ticket DfID at XR protest: “Who wants to work in Argentina, Brazil, Congo, Pakistan, Zimbabwe…?” Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
