Kiwi Green, Tobacco And Life's Other Little Pleasures!
"The Greens have one thing right - legalize marijuana," says Libertarianz
spokesman for Tobacco "and for life's other little pleasures" Joy Faulkner.
"But," she says, they are also the biggest bunch of hypocrites on the
"Greens want to partake in their pleasure while knocking mine," says
Faulkner. "They want to talk about personal freedom with one breath, while
taxing the hell out of my pleasure with their next. Well," she smiles, "it's
high time these irresponsible hypocrites were smoked out."
Faulkner points out that the Greens want the freedom to smoke what they
like, but they want tobacco smokers and other taxpayers to pay for that
freedom. "It is time that they acknowledged that if they want freedom, then
they must be prepared to pay for it - they must be prepared to take
responsibility for their actions."
Asked for an example, Faulkner points to the selective statistic-collecting
by doctors "which put all the blame for man's ills on the the beleaguered
tobacco smoker. Case in point: If I go to a doctor with a dose of Bronchitis
I am asked if I smoke; this is the only 'lifestyle' question I am asked. I
am not asked if I smoke marijuana. Anything ingested into the lungs can
cause many things blamed on tobacco smoking - these statistics are a crock!"
Faulkner suggests that there are now as many people in this country smoking
marijuana as tobacco, but no-one is asked that when attending a physician.
"Tobacco smokers end up with the statistics though. How do we know that
Maoris' poor health figures are not due to their statistically high use of
marijuana? Answer: we don't, because they do not disclose this fact to their
doctor because it is illegal. If we legalise all drugs then we can be clear
about who and what is responsible for our afflictions and illnesses."
Libertarianz say we should legalise all drugs for consenting adults, at the
same time as we ensure that those using these drugs take responsiblity for
their own health. "Freedom and responsibility - one is a flipside of the
other," concludes Faulkner.
It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz!
