Drug Use in New Zealand

I just read a Being Frank post on the drug problems in New Zealand.

I was flabbergasted.

Let me quote Dumb Ox on this:

Not only do the NZ Drug foundation operate needle exchange programs which provide clean needles to drug users to shoot up with, but they also have a TXT service where you can get free advice about any drugs you are thinking of taking.

What crackpot of a program! We’ve become so P.C., even to substances we know are causing harm in N.Z. society. No wonder drugs are almost a normal part of lives of students in the country.

Even “P” (methamphetamine), one of the most harmful and dehumanizing drugs aren’t taken seriously by the Drug Foundation, which takes a minimization approach; In other words, “it’s OK to take drugs… so long as you ration it”. Don’t take my word for it, read their methamphetamine page. It even has a suggestion on “safe use”!!! The absurdity of this just blows my mind. Let me quote those passages:

Safe use

Because methamphetamine can stimulate physical activity, users should always ensure they are well hydrated. However, care should be taken not to over-hydrate (drinking too much water). This can cause brain swelling, convulsions, coma and death.

…Injecting users should always use clean needles and return used needles to a needle exchange service. This will help avoid blood-borne diseases such as HIV and hepatitis B and C.

It reads like an instruction booklet from a pharmaceutical company – it’s absolutely absurd!

Sigh… please, all my Christian brothers and sisters reading this please pray for New Zealand!
