I don't like smoking, but I'm not a fan of prohibition.
Keep it legal, tax the hell out of it (and alcohol, and petrol).

Whilst we're at it, legalise most other drugs too - and tax the hell out of them as well. The more personally and societally harmful, the higher the tax.
That way, you get a regulated market, you know the product is what it says it is, there's far, far less stigma attached to using, and seeking help to not use, and more money for government to actually tackle the issues around use.


I know it's not a lefty thing to think, as it makes these things a plaything of the wealthy, but **** it.

For drugs, make them legal, but for some only at specialised centres where there are medical staff available.

Or, possibly enforce training and supplies for any sellers - epipens, adrenaline shots etc.


Or, sod it, and I know this would never fly - have the rules written by people who know what they're talking about, not politicians, vested interests with profit motive, or randoms on a rugby forum. Preferably experts who've worked in other countries that have legalised things.

Probably one of the best explanations of ADHD/ADD:

Crazy stat. Before I read it was like 1 in 3.
I really wonder what is causing the increase. I’ve read loads of different studies etc but non really provide the explanation. I do wonder if it is something like radio waves or something that they are just not wanted to share or if they really don’t know.

Increased accuracy of detection meaning things that were once attributed to other things are now known to be various cancers?

Increased levels of processed foods and air pollution can't help, though

Yeh I wonder what caused mine and my oncologist thinks I may have developed it or increased risk when I was born - nothing I could have done to prevent it.

I racked my brains - don’t smoke (but mine wasn’t a respiratory cancer), not overweight or obese, no family history of cancer.

Cholesterol levels are high so just cutting down on saturated fat and getting far more exercise.

Just so difficult to pin point as cancer can come out of no where. But yeh as Olyy says above processed foods and air pollution are possible factors.

I am 3 years clear now, and annual blood tests plus CT scans biannually for next 6 years.

This is the internet, so... please tell me you're joking.

I’m not joking in the sense that I wonder if there is a knock effect from all the extra radiation from all the different types of signals etc that are now in the atmosphere over a prolong period of time. Or maybe there is just more radiation from the incidents over the years but my question was, I wonder if there is something that is causing it that’s they’ve just not told everyone about.
