National’s Otago MP Jacqui Dean is a joke

Jacqui Dean wants to ban party pills and immediately make gangs more powerful and criminalize a huge sub section of the community which is great news for our over streacthed prison suystem that her mate Simon Powers is always claiming is a plasma TV, BBQ dinner paradise for Crims (interestingly Big Si never seems to mention the outright corruption, racisim and violence of prisons).

Here is what Jacqui has to say on banning party pills….

"BZP is an entry level into all other drugs and a gateway to P and research shows it is a dangerous drug.”
Did Jacqui pull this ‘fact’ out of her arse? Party Pills are a gate way drug to P? Are you fucking kidding me? That’s one big fucking gateway, let’s see, from a $20 pack for three pills to $800 per gram, that’s not just a gateway, it is a German Autobahn of recreational drug abuse. I suppose Booze and ciggies are ‘resting stops’ for drug use are they? Not gateways, juts legal little recreation stops along the way towards drugs. Her ‘fact’ is bullshit and could be used more effectively to ban booze and ciggies than they can to ban party pills, next.

"We are conditioning our children to take pills to have a good time."
Hahahahaha, tell that to the makers of Ritalin and Prozac, neurotic white middle class families are the real pushers here if Jacqui is to wag her finger on the "We are conditioning our children to take pills to have a good time." high horse, but seeing as that could be a big chunk of her vote, better to have a go at teenagers instead.

"If people are really comfortable taking a pill and having a few drinks now, then having a smoke of P at a party may seem safe to them. Well, it isn't."
I’m sorry, what the fuck? If I’m comfy popping a pill, I’ll next be off for a burn on the pipe? Is Jacqui suggesting everyone who pops pills will want to automatically want to smoke methamphetamine? Does that include disprin? Has she even thought about what she is saying before she starts to open her mouth?

Now I don’t wanna shit on anyone, but Jacqui if you want to join the debate, do your homework girlfriend, God forbid this clown ever gets into office.

More moral hand wringing from the provinces
Party pill users face a new type of comedown after an MP launched a private member's bill yesterday to reclassify the active ingredient in the legal drug. Launching her Misuse of Drugs (Prohibition of BZP) Amendment Bill in Invercargill yesterday, National's Otago MP Jacqui Dean said she was gobsmacked by the level of concern in the provinces about party pills. "When I go to places like Wanganui, Gisborne or Napier the level of concern over the pills is everywhere. Originally I had thought it was just a South Island thing." Mrs Dean initially wanted restrictions on their sale, but now "I just want them banned".

same old same old natianal party.

When your demographic are the greedys, the blue risne brigade and the afraid then you just pander to their fears and ignorance.

It helps when mainstream media plays the same game and holds up examples like the west coast dj/party thrower who took a cocktail of god knows what but the reporting on his brush with death just goes on about party pills, party pills, party pills.

Dishonest media and cynical populist politicians drive drug policy in this country

I don't think so bomber, you would have to be one desperate gang member to sell illegal party pills.

yet prison or home detention will be at and all time high... govt should just ban everything thats they consider bad, smoking, salt, chocolate, coffee... anyone caught at the beach with a mouth full of salt water get and instant 3 months Jail..... and we complain about the States

Hated By Most

I seriously can't see how anyone can debate against you on this one Bomber. This is like the argument about Marijuana being a gateway.

Idiots choose to do P, depressed people/mentally unstable people may also choose to do P...but clubbers spending $20 on party pills to keep them up the night WILL NOT pay an extra 7k for less positive and a hell of alot more negative drug...unless they are IDIOTS

Doing P is a conscious decision, not the infulence from party pills.

Ah yes, the good old press-release-turned-into-news scenario.

It is the same old thing - somebody 'important' says something in a press release.

What they say isn't factual, but it is a fact that they said it. And so the media reports it.

I'm actually surprised at the restraint in the headline. It could have just as easily been:

Party pills 'a gateway to P'.

See how it works. Someone without a critical eye may not see the single quotation marks and could read this as fact.

Also, the linked article has no balancing paragraph whatsoever. Not even a token statement from Matt Bowden...

Of course, none of this invalidates the proposition that Jacqui Dean's arguments as quoted in the article are disingenuous and in parts logically incoherent.

Fuck you're a hypocrite Bomber... Jim Anderton has been hardcore against drugs too and not a peep from you.

I know, you hate National/ACT/the rich/big business/Mcdonalds yada yada yada.. but try just a little bit of your brain and share the blame around.

And by the way YES Jacqui Dean is stupid, I say legalise all drugs.

Do you not think that "weed can make you crazy"?
Research suggests cannabis use can cause mental health problems. Why rule it out?
Denying that cannabis could cause some people harm
makes you sound like a fundamentalist Christian ruling out the possibility of evolution.
