Iran to decriminalize drugs such as heroin

  3. Iran to decriminalize drugs such as heroine.
UnfairRepresent 21 hours ago#1
Iranian lawmakers have passed the motion to decriminalize drug use so they can help their addicts heal, instead of punishing them.

While the Judicial and Legal Commission is still working on the exact legislation, the proposal will allow the government to hand out diluted substances to drug users, thus cutting off the relationship between addicts and traffickers.

By legalizing the distribution of methadone – a prescription opiate used to treat heroin addiction – drug users can be better equipped to wean themselves off of their habits. Some international governments may still be wary of decriminalization – but countries like Portugal can put their worries to rest.

14 years after decriminalizing heroine, the nation’s drug use fell by about a third, heroine addiction rates were cut in half, and drug-related deaths decreased by 75% which is more than half.

“Given the special emphasis that the Establishment’s macro-policies put on the necessity of cutting off the relationship between drug addicts and narco-traffickers, we decided that the government hand out diluted drugs to addicts, so that they will be able to give up their addiction gradually and, instead of being drawn to drug-traffickers, turn to the Establishment and meet their needs through official channels,” said Hassan Norouzi, the spokesperson for the Parliament’s Judicial and Legal Commission, according to IFP News.

Because we have powerful lobby groups from both the police force and pharmaceutical companies who are corrupting our democratic system.

How bad does the drug problem need to get for heroin and meth and how many innocent stoners do we need to lock up before the a******s in the drivers seat realise that policies like this need to be adopted? Christ, it does me an anger

Iran Say it Has Captured “Western Spies” Involved in Nuclear Cyberattack

Late last month it was revealed that Iran’s first nuclear plant underwent a shocking and sophisticated cyberattack which was designed to break its fuel enrichment centrifuges. The Stuxnet worm reportedly succeeded in temporarily hindering plant operations, infecting hundreds of plant computers. However, the worm turned out to be overly virulent, spreading to thousands of other plant computers worldwide and drawing attention. Israel is suspected of the attack, according to a senior source quoted in a report by The New York Times.

Now Iran’s intelligence minister, Heydar Moslehi, who accused western “spy services” of the attack, has claimed on Iranian state television and the Mehr news service that his forces had captured “several spies”.

He accused western nations (presumably the U.S. and Europe) of engaging in “destructive activities of the arrogance in cyberspace”.

President Ahmedinejad Threatens U.S. With War ‘Without Boundaries’

Interesting to see Ahmedinejad on the Morning show on ABC saying “Osama Bin Laden is in Washington DC”. He also said Bin Laden was a colleague of George W. Bush. Is it just me or does it seem like Ahmedinejad is more honest with us than our own Elite rulers?

I think Ahmedinejad must be intelectually challenged. Does he understand the psyche of the American People? You threaten us, we tend to rally around a fake charge. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad warned the Obama administration today that if Iran’s nuclear facilities are attacked, the U.S. will face a war that “would know no boundaries.”

The Iranian president, who is in New York for the annual meetings of the United Nations General Assembly, spoke at a breakfast meeting with reporters and editors at Manhattan’s Warwick Hotel. He said that Iran is on the brink of becoming a nuclear power, and warned Israel and the U.S. against attacking its nuclear facilities.

Asked about the possibility of a U.S.-supported Israeli air strike against Iran, the fiery Iranian leader said an attack would be considered an act of war, and suggested the U.S. is unprepared for the consequences.

Such a war "would know no boundaries," Ahmedinejad said,
"
War is not just bombs."

(economic warfare? cyber attacks? is this what he is eluding too? the real definition of modern warfare?)

Iran claims it has no plans to make a nuclear weapon, but the country is faced with United Nations sanctions, spearheaded by the U.S., meant to convince Iran to comply with international regulations and abandon its nuclear program.

It looks like the war on "terror" continues...
