I LEARN from the media that a drug haul of cannabis valued in the region of £600,000 has recently been discovered in both parts of Ireland.
The global drug empire, whether it be cannabis or cocaine, is a multi-billion dollar/euro/pound empire. It is a social disease worse than aids, for it is not restricted by barriers of poverty – for the rich and famous have also paid the price by falling into the despair of becoming addicted to this health-destroying disease.
Billions of taxpayers’ money is spent annually, by countries as far apart as Britain and Australia, in tackling this scourge of drug peddling.
Wars have been created over it, as well as internal feuds between drug barons protecting their empires, where they callously butcher those who dare challenge their vile enterprises.
Undoubtedly the creation of the European Union, giving freedom of citizen interchange between member countries, has been a Christmas “gift-wrapped present” to those who peddle drugs.
This farcical lack of control, where a country is prohibited from selecting people that they may consider beneficial to their economy, opens the floodgates for every criminal element, and, as there are criminal elements in every society, it goes without saying that they go where there are easy pickings.
As Britain is plagued with every law imaginable for the protection of the criminal, with many of these laws imposed upon them by their European Union membership, it goes without saying that drastic change is required to create a society that protects the law-abiding, not the criminal.
