Random drug test!

Nobody expects a random drug test!

1. Which of the following drugs causes the least harm to users?

Methamphetamine (“P”)

2. Which of the following drugs causes the least harm to others?

Methamphetamine (“P”)

3. Which of the following does not involve a specific ROA?


So, how did you go? (I like to think that if I ever had to undergo a random drug test I’d get 100%.)


Trouble at mill.

Workers could be forced to reveal any prescription medicines they are using to their bosses.

ONE News has discovered that a Government MP wants to clamp down on drugs of any sort in the workplace, and the plan could lead to some being sacked.

Northland National MP and former police officer Mike Sabin has put forward a private member’s bill that allows random drug testing in all workplaces and for sniffer dogs to be brought in.

ONE News mentions that Sabin used to be a policeman. What they don’t mention is the fact that formerly Sabin was the founder and managing director of the Methcon Group, a company that supplied drug testing kits.

Now, I don’t know whether or not Sabin is still financially involved—either on or off paper—in the business of supplying drug testing kits. I’m just signalling that there’s a potential conflict of interest that an investigative journalist or investigative blogger might like to investigate. Just sayin’.

What I do know is that Sabin is a one-trick pony and a hypocrite who shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near our National Drug Policy. (The Government is calling for submissions to update and help shape its National Drug Policy, Associate Minister of Health Todd McClay announced today.)

I tried to find a picture of Sabin during his Methcon days …

… but I could find only the caption that once went with a picture of Sabin during his Methcon days.

A worker would have to declare any prescription medicine they are taking if it could be a safety problem.

“Nothing at all alters that fact that employers must act in a fair, just and reasonable manner in line with every other provision of the Employment Relations Act,” Mr Sabin said.

I declare that Sabin should resign as MP for Northland. I think his presence in Parliament is a safety problem. The legislative medicine he has so far prescribed, viz., the Psychoactive Substances Act, most certainly is.

I hope that Sabin’s employers (New Zealand’s citizens, residents and taxpayers) will act in a fair, just and reasonable manner next election and vote this poisonous prohibitionist out. Meanwhile, let’s hope his private member’s bill isn’t drawn.

Genesis is real history: Evidence supporting the account of Noah.


This from the Facebook page Biblical Creation


The Hebrew name for one of Noah’s grandsons is Mizraim (Genesis 10:6). It is no coincidence that modern Egyptians call themselves Misr, which is a derivative of Mizraim. According to the Book of Genesis, Noah’s grandson, Mizraim, is the father of the Egyptians. In a revised chronology, Egypt comes into existence soon after the dispersion from Babel, around 2100 BC. Eusebius, the famous 4th century AD historian, writes:Egypt is called Mestraim by the Hebrews; and Mestraim lived not long after the flood. For after the flood, Cham (or Ham), son of Noah, begat Aeguptos or Mestraim, who was the first to set out to establish himself in Egypt, at the time when the tribes began to disperse this way and that…Mestraim was indeed the founder of the Egyptian race; and from him the first Egyptian Dynasty must be held to spring.


Does the Bible condemn laziness and stupidity?


Proverbs 6:6-9 KJV
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?

Proverbs 10:26 ESV
Like vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to those who send him.

Proverbs 18:9 ESV
Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.

Proverbs 24:30-34 ESV
I passed by the field of a sluggard, by the vineyard of a man lacking sense, and behold, it was all overgrown with thorns; the ground was covered with nettles, and its stone wall was broken down. Then I saw and considered it; I looked and received instruction. A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.

Proverbs 26:14-16 ESV
As a door turns on its hinges, so does a sluggard on his bed. The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; it wears him out to bring it back to his mouth. The sluggard is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 ESV
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.


Mark 7:18 NIV
“Are you so dull?” he asked.

Matthew 15:16 NIV
“Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them.

La la la la Just imagine dethroning the Queen of England !???
I couldn’t help myself but to imagine exactly that… and myself sitting on the throne… after reading that it’s illegal… even to imagine that 🙂

Imagine if I were King!
Oh how the world would be a much brighter place!

The truth is I actually like Olde Lizzy… (though I am sure I could do a better job … 🙂 )
I once wrote a Queens birthday Radio show yarn on why I thought she was quite certainly one of the better monarchs of history… for example she does not impose her personal religious beliefs upon the Plebs… as was common practice a few hundred years ago.
As a Libertarian I believe New Zealand ought to become a constitutional Republic, yet this does not mean I dont like the Queen, or that I would support *any and every* Kiwi political Republican ambition as I am well aware of the possibility of a much worse form of government being established than what we have under the Commonwealth.
I am indeed very sceptical about such a move given our parliament is currently packed to the brim with Communists, racists, and Fascists who would love to assume absolute power!
Be very afraid!

Yet still this post was motivated by a very strange, silly, and tyrannical Statist Law.
A supposed crime of thought.

In Libertarian circles such thoughts…. and even actions… are a right, and a duty.

To even ‘imagine’ toppling Queen illegal… Press TV

To even “imagine” toppling the Queen or the abolition of the monarchy both remain punishable by life imprisonment in each and every country under the reign of the Queen, particularly in the UK, local media report.

This came after the UK Ministry of Justice was left embarrassed following the announcement that a list of 309 offences due to be repealed before May mistakenly included a call for the abolition of the monarchy.

The government was quick to reiterate that it is still illegal to even “imagine” so and one that imagined so could be imprisoned for life.

To imagine deposing the Crown or waging war against the Queen is still theoretically punishable by lifetime jail, although nobody has been prosecuted under the law since 1897, it has been claimed.

A routine notice from the Home Office had suggested that Section 3 of the Treason Felony Act h1848 had been repealed.

Following the announcement, campaign group Republic said it welcomed the news that a law banning public calls for the abolition of the monarchy had been scrapped.

“ … we have long called for the repeal of this law and we are pleased that parliament now formally acknowledges that republicanism is a legitimate and mainstream point of view … we have repeatedly publically and unequivocally called for the abolition of the monarchy without any legal threat,” said Republic’s spokesperson Graham Smith..

However, the Ministry of Justice said embarrassingly that it has been a mistake to announce that the law is scrapped, reiterating that republicanism still carries the title of crime punishable by life in prison.

The monarchy in Britain is not only an unaccountable, totalitarian and expensive entity, but it also is a hereditary institution within which the Queen and her family cannot be held to account at the ballot box.

A question of harm and government’s duty

A common argument for Marijuana being illegal is as follows :-

P1. Government has a duty to protect people from harm.
P2. Marijuana is harmful.
C. Therefore, Government has a duty to protect people from marijuana.

At a Libertarianz conference Dakta Green spoke against this argument’s conclusion – he argued for the legalisation of cannabis. Dakta’s speech was aimed at convincing the audience that P2 was false (i.e. that cannabis was not harmful).

His seat was near mine so after he had finished speaking I asked him if he thought P should be illegal. He was quite insistent that P should be illegal because it was harmful.

Dakta’s argument for criminalising P was the same form :-

P1. Government has a duty to protect people from harm.
P2. Methamphetamine is harmful.
C. Therefore, Government has a duty to protect people from methamphetamine.

According to Dakta’s own reasoning cannabis should be illegal if it is harmful. Dakta was incorrect about cannabis not being harmful. But he was correct that cannabis should not be illegal. The false premise is P1 – i.e. government does not have a duty to protect people from harm.

Consider the following :-

P1. If government has a duty to protect us from harm then government should protect us from alcohol.
P2. Government shouldn’t protect us from alcohol.
C. Therefore, government does not have a duty to protect us from harm.

The belief that Government has a duty to protect people from harm is the basis of Nanny Statism.

Do you believe that government has a duty to protect you from harm?

The truth about marijuana

Marijuana makes people feel good. Apart from making people feel good marijuana may have some other positive effects – glaucoma remedy, pain relief, cancer cure (yeah right), etc. but overwhelmingly the effect of smoking marijuana is that it makes people stupid and lazy – and I’m not just talking about immediately after smoking it – people that smoke regularly are stupid and lazy on a full time basis.


“Stupid and lazy” might be overstating it for some but a regular dope smoker is certainly less intelligent and less motivated than they would be without it.

The truth about marijuana is that it is predominantly harmful.

Point of Entry

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth,
    with the firstfruits of all your crops;
then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
    and your vats will brim over with new wine.

My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not resent his rebuke,
because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
    as a father the son he delights in.

Blessed are those who find wisdom,
    those who gain understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver
    and yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies;
    nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways,
    and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her;
    those who hold her fast will be blessed.

By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations,
    by understanding he set the heavens in place;
by his knowledge the watery depths were divided,
    and the clouds let drop the dew.

My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
    preserve sound judgment and discretion;
they will be life for you,
    an ornament to grace your neck.
Then you will go on your way in safety,
    and your foot will not stumble.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
    when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the Lord will be at your side
    and will keep your foot from being snared.

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due,
    when it is in your power to act.
Do not say to your neighbor,
    “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”—
    when you already have it with you.
Do not plot harm against your neighbor,
    who lives trustfully near you.
Do not accuse anyone for no reason—
    when they have done you no harm.

Do not envy the violent
    or choose any of their ways.

For the Lord detests the perverse
    but takes the upright into his confidence.
The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
    but he blesses the home of the righteous.
He mocks proud mockers
    but shows favor to the humble and oppressed.
The wise inherit honor,
    but fools get only shame. (NIV)

Did Aaron the High Priest smoke? || The biblical roots of Jews and marijuana:

Aaron… The ‘High’ Priest. 🙂

Doctor, mohel, and former IDF lieutenant Yosef Glassman finds surprising links between controversial plant and ancient Judaism.
“Also, one will beautify [Shabbat candle lighting] when the wick is made from cotton, flax or cannabis…”

That’s right, cannabis.

This dictate, found in the Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law), piqued the curiosity of Boston geriatrician Yosef Glassman when he was reading about Sabbath rituals on a religious quest nearly two decades ago.

The future doctor decided to embark on a project to learn whether cannabis was also used for medicinal purposes in ancient Jewish times. At first, he proceeded hesitantly — the federal ban on marijuana stigmatizes even library research on the drug, he said.

But in recent years, with medical marijuana’s legalization in several states, Glassman felt more comfortable delving in. What he found was a wealth of references in the Bible and beyond. Marijuana usage, he contends, is an aspect of Jewish law and tradition that had long been buried, and one that deserves “resurfacing and exploration.”

“There is no question that the plant has a holy source, God himself, and is thus mentioned for several ritualistic purposes,” said Glassman, who is also a mohel and a former Israel Defense Force lieutenant. He lives in Newton, Mass. with his family.


Glassman also found many references to non-medicinal uses of marijuana. “It is clear that using cannabis for clothing and accessories was very common, according to the Talmud,” he said. It was used for making tallitot and tzitzit, as well as “schach” (Sukkot roof coverings).

Glassman also found that cannabis fit into the category of kitnyos on Passover, meaning that Ashkenazi Jews were prohibited from using it on the holiday. “One thus might assume that it was also consumed, perhaps as food, during the remainder of the year,” he said, noting that hemp seeds are a non-intoxicating form of protein.

Glassman first presented his findings in late October during grand rounds — a medical teaching session — at the New England Sinai Hospital in Stoughton, Mass., where he is a physician. He has since gone on to give the same lecture to lay and medical professional audiences. “The goal is to educate practitioners on the rich cultural history behind the use of cannabis as a medicine, explain its mechanism of action, and dispel myths about its safety profile,” he said at one such presentation open to the public in Brookline, Mass. in November.

He explained that he had received no commercial support for his research, that no exhibitors were present, and sorry, but there were no free samples. “Not even in those brownies in the back?” joked one audience member.

In the talk, Glassman described finding several biblical references to the herb that include Book of Numbers 17:12-13, where Aaron the High Priest, “no pun intended,” probably burned marijuana as an incense offering “during a time of turmoil.” Other passages include God’s instructions to Moses to “take for yourself herbs b’samim” — herbs of medicinal quality — and instructions in Exodus to “take spices of the finest sort, pure myrrh, five hundred shekels, fragrant cinnamon, and ‘keneh bosem,’” which literally means “sweet cane,” but possibly refers to cannabis, said Glassman. “Keneh bosem” is also mentioned in the Song of Songs 4:14, Isaiah 43:24, Jeremiah 6:20 and Ezekiel 27:19. Another pronunciation is the Aramaic “kene busma,” which, perhaps unsurprisingly, is also the name of a modern reggae musician.

Glassman’s research revealed that cannabis may have been used as an anesthetic during childbirth in ancient Israel; he described an archaeological discovery of hashish in the stomach of the 1,623-year-old remains of a 14-year-old girl in Beit Shemesh. Maimonides was also an advocate of using cannabis oil for ailments such as colds and ear problems. “There are complex laws of plant mixing and hybridizing from the Talmud, which Maimonides comments on,” said Glassman. “Cannabis specifically was taken especially seriously in terms of mixing … and could, in fact, incur the death penalty. This shows me that apparently, cannabis was treated quite seriously.”

Ancient Jews weren’t the only people to use cannabis medicinally, of course. In his lecture, Glassman noted that cannabis has been used in Chinese medicine, as one of the 50 fundamental herbs, for 4,700 years; ancient Egyptians used it in suppositories and for eye pain; and Greeks made wine steeped with cannabis and used it for inflammation and ear problems.

South Africa Mandela Interpreter

Waving my arms in the air 
Love, my love, got no care 
No care, no, no, pressing my feet to the ground 
Stand up right where you stand 
Call to you and what do you do 
Laying back in a chair? 
She’s so high on the air 
She’s so high on the air 
Half and half, half and half 
All you have to do to call 
Is hold her hand, stand a while 
And then smile and we’ll understand 
Yes we do – yes, yes we do! 
Oh what a girl I’ve got too! 
Oh what a girl I’ve got too! 
With her slinky look she held her tie to her hair 
(and I) could see everywhere 
No-one in the land, no-one 
No-one in the land, no-one 
But it rains on Saturday – cats and dogs in the hay 
Stormy day, hey, hey 
And you shouldn’t try to be 
What you can’t be 
And you shouldn’t try to be 
What you can’t be 
Call to you and what do you do

#1: Uruguay


Uruguay has became the first country to legalise the growing, sale and smoking of marijuana, a pioneering social experiment that will be closely watched by other nations debating drug liberalisation.

A government-sponsored bill approved by 16-13 votes in the Senate late Tuesday (local time) provides for regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana …


This is great news. 🙂
