Conservatives' cannabis madness
What exactly is the point of the modern Conservative Party?
Conservatism used to mean what it said: conserving British values, traditions and institutions.
But now it conserves nothing, having swallowed left-wing 'progressivism' hook, line and sinker.
David Cameron took a wrecking ball to the sacred institution of marriage by promoting and legalising homosexual pseudo-marriage.
On immigration, the Tories are indistinguishable from Labour, having abandoned their fake pledge to reduce it to 'tens of thousands'.
Like Labour too, they whitewash Islam, claiming against all reason that it's a 'religion of peace' unconnected with 'Allahu Akbar' bomb, gun, machete and truck attacks.
And, as we discovered in the early stages of the leadership contest, many of the Conservative Party's most senior figures have taken illegal drugs.
No surprise then, that an organisation called the Drug Policy Reform Group, which lobbies for legalisation of cannabis and other substances, is led by Conservative MPs, including admitted drug user Crispin Blunt.
The madness doesn't end there however, for the group was officially launched last Wednesday, the same week in which the NHS announced the opening of a new clinic to tackle a nationwide epidemic of cannabis-induced psychosis.
Dr Marta Di Forti, of King's College London, said there is 'a crisis of high potency cannabis that we can simply no longer ignore' and that the clinic is responding to that crisis.
Dr Di Forti decided to launch the clinic when it became 'ridiculous' how many psychosis patients were also cannabis smokers.
'It got to the point where two-thirds of my psychosis patients had a history of cannabis use', she said.
The Drug Policy Reform Group is bankrolled by cannabis manufacturing companies that have already made a killing where drugs laws are more liberal - primarily Canada and the US.
They include Toronto-based Wayland Group and the Supreme Cannabis Company, both of which sell 'super strength' cannabis.
'Medical' marijuana is already legal in 33 US states, whilst recreational marijuana is legal in 11.
One of them is Colorado, which now has more marijuana shops than Starbucks and McDonalds combined.
In Oregon, legal pot sales are expected to top $1 billion by 2020.
Druggy entrepreneurs haven't been slow to develop new, dope-saturated products, many of them seemingly aimed at the young:
Now big businesses and venture capitalists are pushing to legalise cannabis for recreational use in Britain. According to a report in the Evening Standard, a group met recently at the Institute of Directors to discuss this potential new market, now that Canada and parts of America have ended what they called 'prohibition'.
Tax revenues from legal cannabis sales could be huge.
To a UK government facing growing resistance to mass immigration, Islamisation and the spiralling (societal and economic) costs of both, the prospect of a zombified electorate dutifully filling government coffers with marijuana tax will surely seem irresistible.
