DANIEL ANDREWS IS RIGHT ABOUT “PILL-TESTING”: the need to stay rational….

Last week several people at a Melbourne Festival Hall dance required treatment for breathing difficulties after taking a drug.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is again under pressure to legalise pill-testing at such functions.
No, says the premier, he won’t, because “there is no safe level at which these drugs can be taken….”
Greens Party leader, Richard Di Natale, says Mr Andrews “has his head in the sand” — because young people will always experiment with drugs….
Being opposed by the Greens may be a good sign — many of their policies betray contempt for the rule of law and for human beings as potentially rational creatures.
It won’t be easy for Premier Andrews to stick to principle on this one.
Let’s hope he does.
We need to turn the tide away from irresponsible weak-minded “pragmatic” attitudes.
