I was amused to hear Jim Anderton talking about ridding New Zealand of the 
evil of methamphetamine drugs. So Jim is going to succeed where other 
countries have failed. Jim is going to do this by trying exactly the same 
tactics that other countries have attempted. Jim is going to use our tax 
dollars to repeat the mistakes of history and achieve a zero result.

We live by the law of supply and demand, and statistics from other 
countries will tell you that the more you try to ban drugs, the more demand 
you create.

P is not going to destroy New Zealand society. For every P-related crime, I 
can show you 100 that are alcohol-related. For every P addiction, I'll show 
you five gambling addicts. For every P death I'll show you several that are 
a result of our Government's social policies.
