Mr Brown backed Mr Johnson’s decision and defended the right of elected ministers to reject the advice of scientists at times. He said: â€œOn climate change, or health, for example, we take the best scientific advise possible. But in an area like drugs we have to look at it in the round.
In the round? Ah, yes, I see here you have proved that 2+2=4. But, you see, in this area, we have to look at it in the round, so I declare it to be 3.
Lots of random “for the children” and “mixed messages” nonsense, and then.
He rejected the argument that cannabis is less harmful than alcohol and cigarettes.
â€œWe’ve seen brands of cannabis that are distorted by other products and ingredients. That’s one of the reasons why it’s important to send a message that drug abuse is not acceptable and a criminal offence.â€
(Yeah, your spliff becomes dangerous when cannabis is mixed with tobacco, but that’s because of the tobacco.)
There’s so much wrong with those sentences…
