Ah yes, of course. Certainly I cannot foresee any kind of dramatic, inflammatory response to your position.

Yeah, I'm sure people won't mind others asserting that they shouldn't be allowed to make adult decisions about how they choose to relax or have fun without harming others.

Referendum for Cannibis will get Labour (with Greens) back into parliament.

I believe we will see a spike in the younger generation coming out to vote for it.

Yes, that reminds me of a rare radio interview I listened to. Doctor was talking about cannabis being prescribed for treating pain associated with terminal illnesses. Interviewer asked how it would be consumed, the reply being vaping, smoking, edibles. The interviewer:

"HAnG on HaNg oN hAnG oN, DocToRs pResCrIbIng sMoKinG!?1!?"

Cause, a) smoking is the only option, b) doctors never prescribe anything with harmful side effects and c) people with terminal illnesses are concerned about their long term health.

That lady is washed up. I think her last true asset was Slater.

Is it a boomer thing or an uninformed thing.

Just heard one say "Those young people in Hong Kong need to give it a rest."

I didn't want to get involved.

Universities need to be returned to academia before we start having a sook about whether or not they support free speech.

Universities are lapsing generators of legitimacy, their significance ebbing as they switch to systems of cash generation in exchange for access.

Samoa measles outbreak: Edwin Tamasese first anti-vaxxer arrested

Good. Climate deniers should be next as climate change is also a clear and present danger.
