I think you're funny Ash.

Overwhelming:
I can't be bothered to argue with you at the moment, but I might just bring up a point: what would you say if Harry Potter doesn't have any hidden occult-teaching agenda, that HP was created just to make the author and publisher rich/famous?

Spring, I didn't know that the KKK was anti-Christ, I always thought it was twisted Christianity.

Blazing Saddles, surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet.

Trainspotting and Requiem For A Dream are very interesting.

Population might be the answer. Doesn't QLD have a Super 12/14 team anyway, though?

Not sure exactly how much AFL players get paid. For the superstars, probably something around $800,000 a year.

I didn't know that QLD qualified as up north, sorry.

800k! Woah! The top All Blacks get ~500k from all competitions. Man, is AFL the way to go or what! AFL must have a good salary to population-who-play-the-game ratio.

I guess you mean Aussie Rules. We get only AFL highlights here, and the Footy Show, which is crap.

I was just wondering if Australians who know Union care about the Lions tour.

We just finished mid-year exams down here. Now it's three week's holiday and the ALL BLACKS THIS WEEKEND!

I wonder how many people here know about rugby.

EDIT: 1000, how nice. I don't think I'll ever get my member number though.

Yeah, it isn't a change-your-life movie.

I think Mystic River is over-rated. There are a few unanswered questions at the end, false or incorrect portrayals of the characters from the books and a couple odd moments. Plus Clint wrote a terrible score for the movie.
I say it's not as good as the book.

EDIT: Oh, Nick Hornby (who wrote About A Boy) wrote High Fidelity. I like this movie a lot, so I read the book, and the movie is very different. I like the movie more, but as it is subjective I don't think that this can be used as an example of a movie better than it's book.

Thuryl, does that mean pot, crack and P? What about steroids or other things like that? It's very general, so I don't know. It isn't very clear actually.

"There is no extra policing for drugs under the provided legislation. All forms of enforcement will merely be juxtaposed with current alcohol legislation."
- Where is the provided legislation, so I can have a look?

"(And for reference, if "P" is referring to PCP, it'd still be illegal according to Alec's plan.)"
- Where is Alec's plan, so I can have alook?

Well, I just figured that people who had wanted to use some but couldn't be bothered builing up the contacts required, would walk in and do it once it became as simple as that.

EDIT: Um, supervised injection? Do you mean, every single user with be catalogued, with time/date of last dose, and everything this entails? How much will this cost?

I don't think those who post on a games message boards would give anything near a fair or true view.

I just don't trust that people buying drugs will use moderation. Therefore the problems they create would cancel out benefits of controlling the sale of drugs. And hey, wouldn't this plan only work if the government did it perfectly? Since when has anyone done something perfectly?

The banning method isn't perfect, but offenders are being caught, good things are happening. If these changes were introduced, how long would it take for it to work as well as banning does now?

The market is kept artifically small because of all the people who want to buy drugs but can't/don't because it's illegal.

I don't understand why you said stuff about entering the market. Have you read the entire thread? You know the market would be a monopoly right?

Ha, yeah. But Stug, it's less about the right woman turning Hugh into a desireable person. It's more about Hugh becoming a more social person with real relationships, which is more because of Marcus.

Where did you get the "male ideal" part from? He is depicted as having problems, and throughout the movie he works out his social problems, but he isn't perfect at the end.

My understanding as to why there are minimal black markets for cigarettes and alcohol is because these products are readily available and are relatively affordable. Crack is relatively harder to get and relatively expensive. If you want to reduce the black market for crack, then you will have to make sure that the controlled markets increase current consumption levels of crack by huge amounts until black markets activities become generally hard to carry out for profit. I don't particularly want my rich neighbours to use crack as much as they like, let alone my teachers and lecturers, and definately not my boss at work. Isn't it worse to have widespread drug use and it's consequences than banning drug use, policing it and having to deal with black markets? Yes, drug money is up to no good, but if the government allowed widespread drug use, than wouldn't hospitals, rehab centres and the acts of control/policing/anti-corruption etc guzzle up the revenues, leaving everything the same as before, but with the added bonus of lots more people high on crack, heroin and P?

Someone said that there would be better venues for rehab if these changes happened. Aren't rehab centres widespread already, and if they don't support your area enough, isn't that something you should write to your local politician/health board about?

What else ... drug use is self destructive. I don't want people in positions of power, authority and responsibility to self destruct, there will be problems.
Well, at least in NZ, there have been three murderers put in jail recently who were high on P and really don't know what happened. Drug use is self destructive until it changes your behavour, then it becomes harmful to others.

Weed is addictive, I don't know what some of you are on, go to NIDA or somewhere.

Finally, long term drug use is bad, negative effects on areas the drugs have contact with. Weed affects brain, lungs etc. Maybe there would be lawsuits similar to those being carried out with cigarettes? Would advertising for these drugs be banned like for cigarettes? Many of these drugs are addictive, so is the government just wanting to get in on some ching-ching while these drug users kill themselves softly?

Would this mean steroids become legal? What about the problems which come with this?

I'm not a good debater, I hope I've sorta been able to somewhat outline some points in this.
