Welcome to planet earth!

We can make a difference though; we underestimate our own potential. If everyone did their little bit you would have quite a voice.

Once you have enough people united on a single issue at some stage some things has to be done. Of course those that are profiting from the way things are at the moment are counting on the fact that nobody is going to speak out or do some thing. Even if you just mention the word "Harm reduction" to as many people as you can you are doing a lot.

Simon ever heard of "Piet Potent"
They have written a song called "Wasie Pote"?

In my opinion the best description for the SAPS, and how they are not
really here to "see that we enjoy democracy" (Die Kerels)

I wish little me can make a difference to this "Drug Pandemic", where
the addicts become criminals and the "Dealers" are flourishing.
Because the criminal factor in the SAPS is taking money to look the
other way.

The jails are full and there is just too little done about addictions.
