    Yes but abolishing police will stop global warming.
    So then banning menthol cigs will save the planet.
    This stuff is getting so weird I’m thinking it’s LSD.

  2. Professor Fred Lenin says:

    InVictorian mental health facilities the powers that be ,who do not work in the wards , ordered that inmates smoking be banned entirely .
    Now these patients are being held involuntary , drugged and more or less jailed ,being confined to the ward with nothing to do ,a smoke is their only enjoyment . Many of the inmates ,normaly quiet and biddable are getting stroppy because of the ban . The staff are turning a blind eye and lighting the ciggies secretly as naturally the inmates are not allowed matces or lighters , better they smoke than get violent .
    Another case of the leaders living in a This is a classic case where the admin people should be compelled to serve in the trenches for a year or two ,change attitudes that would , a ew Psychiatrists getting thumped puts adifferent slant on things .

    Menthol cigarettes.

    Known in Australia as Mentholated Shit Sticks.

    Professor Fred, same in NSW psychiatric facilities. They are not even allowed to smoke outdoors.

    Anyone who has had contact with long term residents of these places knows that almost all of them smoke, and it is one of the few pleasures they have in life. The ritual of rolling a cigarette and smoking it is soothing and comforting. Taking that perfectly legal right away from them is sheer cruelty.

    the book ‘Surviving Schizophrenia’ (I forget the author’s name – who was an ‘M.D.’) – the author had a brother IIRC who suffered from Sz- the author spends quite some time looking at the pharmacology of nicotine and other tobacco alkaloids and concludes they have several useful CNS effects and that is one of the reason that they are so used by many of the mentally unwell

    it’s the new Puritanism : thou shalt not speak badly of the priestly class that decree these rules that are handed down from Gaia/Health Officials/Climate Scientists/Social theorists

    our rules are to be obeyed

    defy and you will be sent for re-education

    Surviving Schizophrenia: A Manual for Families, Patients, and Providers
    by E. Fuller Torrey

    Discusses the deinstitutionalisation of chronic mentally unwell in the US – as encouraged by the almost Satanic style ward in ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ & the homelessness that then has become de rigeur for many Western large cities

  7. Maniac says:

    With everything going on in my country – menthol cigarettes? Seriously?

  8. Infidel Tiger says:

    Next they’ll ban fried chicken.

  9. Xword says:

    Anyone else noticed how everything has degenerated into Clown World following the demonisation of tobacco?

  10. Up The Workers! says:

    Save the Planet!

    Ban Menthol cigarettes – you’ll feel the cool.

    Instead, get all your drug needs supplied from the A.L.P.’s protected Richmond Heroin, Cocaine, Ice, Ecstasy, G.H.B., Crystal Meth, M.D.M.A. Hash, and Weed Retailers just near the Richmond Needle-Tossing Centre, conveniently located by the A.L.P., right next-door to the Richmond West Primary School. (Good “finkin” there, A.L.P.)

  11. PB says:

    Next they’ll be banning the grape drank.

  12. PB says:

    “Professor Fred, same in NSW psychiatric facilities. They are not even allowed to smoke outdoors.”

    I too worked in some of these Institutions and facilities years back. Cigarette bans would have been akin to torture, and had the Institutions persisted into this era, they would have become unmanageable as a result of the bans. Sometimes the provision of cigarettes was the only behavioural leverage available.

  13. Mother Lode says:

    It is as if there are a whole lot of agendas under the aegis of leftism which bear sort of family resemblances. None identical, but all with similar features so they are recognisably closely related.

    Once they move from a common front against their common enemy, once they sniff victory in their own farts, the previously ignored differences reassert and they turn on each other.

    But because all their ideologies are preposterous fictions, amalgams of a suppressed sense of inadequacy and envy, a defensive conceit that they are ordained by destiny to re-shape the world, and strained sophistry piled on other sophistries, their combat is similarly clumsy – like two drunkards barely able to stand fighting over some triviality blown out of all proportion by their drug.

    Thus we see trannies turning on feminists, and now black race warriors turning on other race warriors etc.

    Grab some popcorn and a beer.

    There’s a brilliant early monologue by Barry Humphries title What is a ratbag? on his album Savoury Dip. It lists all the things that ratbags do and one line goes “A ratbag spends five minutes each morning transferring virginia cigarettes into an old menthol packet to save himself an expensive ’round'”

  15. Spurgeon Monkfish III says:

    Next they’ll ban fried chicken.

    As well as watermelons and malt liquor.

    Yes

    This.
    Sometimes when the shit is just too much the focus on a ciggie is a great panacea.

    Add in the almost meditative focus on rolling your own and you have 1/2 of what they try to get people with disordered minds to do.
