Cannabis, Holland and the Rumours about lib dem.

Suddenly facebook groups have jumped up out of nowhere talking about how Lib Dem wants to legalise cannabis, yet when you check their manifesto you shall find no evidence of it at all. All it states is that policies should be based on scientists' advice. It annoys me immensely that there are so many people who are naive enough to just go along with it and not check it out for themselves. It took me about three minutes to find the manifesto and its section on drugs. To me it just seems like another vicious rumour spread by the other parties to try and make the Lib Dems seem like the worst people to possibly be in the government as a major player to those who do not support drug use. Furthermore, what people seem to forget is that even if this was what they believed in there is no way that it could possibly happen - they would be in a coalition government and therefore it wouldn't get passed as too many of the other parties would majorly disagree with the idea. Some people have attributed this (fictional) policy to Nick Clegg's half Dutch existence - something which is simply absurd. Just because we [the Dutch] are more open to this sort of thing, doesn't mean we feel it should be implemented all over the world. The most amusing thing that I have found is that due to the tolerance policy we have lower drug rates than quite a few countries around the world, including the UK and the USA. I would like to clear something up though, which to me is important. As much as we tolerate weed it is not legal as such. Technically "coffee shops" do not exist, weed is often no longer sold to tourists and not everyone smokes weed all the time. As the figures show roughly 15% of the people has tried it, that's all.
The reason why Coffee Shops have the name they do is because it is illegal to sell alcohol and weed in the same building, therefore one cannot buy alcohol in these places - hence coffee shop. (I know legislative it is a bit weird as they don't technically exist) Moreover, it is allowed to have three to five female cannabis plants at home for own use.
So those who have followed this and thought Oh my god what are they doing. Or those who are extremely excited about it, you are wrong, it's not happening and you have merely been duped by other parties trying to portray themselves as better. It is pathetic how the democracy of today has changed from one that is positive and is merely parties distinguishing themselves from others by positive comments towards themselves to parties trying to beat other parties down with negative slanter and banter. It makes me so angry because it is completely illogical, and to me absolutely disgusting.


LGBT community

Ok, I have slightly neglected this blog but have been extremely busy recently. Exams are about a month away and I'm terrified.
But what I would like to talk about today is the LGBT community - for those of you ignorant enough to not know what that means it is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transexual [community].
I was asked to fill out a bbc questionaire which talks about the representation of the LGB community (they ignored the T, which I pointed out) and it has made me realise that there isn't a lot of representation in the media of anything which is still seen as remotely out of the ordinary. Which just seems absolutely ridiculous as really the LGBT community should not really be seen as a seperate one as really being Homosexual, Bisexual, Heterosexual or Transexual shouldn't matter at all - all it means is that you are attracted to someone else in the world and that you feel a certain way about yourself.
Where I live it's still very much "out there" to be out and proud, which to me as an absurd idea as I'm from Holland - you don't get much more relaxed about those sorts of issues than in Holland, really.
What should be made is a documentary, to show the narrowminded, precarious, obstreporous snobs what many people have to go through every single day. The amount of abuse you get, the lack of understanding and so much misconception on the whole subject. So I would you to talk to a person on the street, see what they think. Because you might just be surprised, and see that I'm right.
