Quote from: FLYmeatwad on December 29, 2009, 05:29:18 PMAlcohol is a pet peeve of mine.I didn't picture StarCar as a smoker.the hypocrisy in the descrenpancy between the way that alcohol is represented compared to other "drugs" in the press does just makes me plain angry, rather than peeved. last year a friend of a friend was beaten to death by these two pissed-up chavs in Lichfield (a small UK city). The headlines all focused on two out of control yobs, symbols of "Broken Britain" ( ), teenage tearaways, yap yap yap. The fact that they were both absolutely smashed was almost a footnote, yet you can guarantee that had either one of them had so much as a single toke on a spliff then the headlines would have been absurd DRUG CRAZED KILLERS hyperbole. You only need to walk through probably any town in the world (perhaps i should say England as it is the only place i can speak with any modicum of authority on, but i cant see the situation being much different anywhere else. People is people ay it?) on a friday or saturday night to see what alcohol does to a lot of people - turns them into aggressive, violent, irrational, dangerous louts. this is allowed, yet im a criminal for wanting to get stoned and laugh my bollocks off. Marijuana, Ecstacy, LSD all scientifically proven to be less harmful than alcohol and tobacco. Does my nut, im tellin' ya.
