The galoot in the dressing gown is the still extant Edward Gough Whitlam, eminence grise of the Australian Left. He felt that he was too grand to be called "Eddy" so was known throughout his political career as "Gough" -- as in "cough".

What do RAN types get up to in their idle hours? Well, when not fishing illegal aliens out of the Indian Ocean, they amuse themselves by torturing those still aboard with red-hot engine mufflers and vicious beatings.
Or so the ABC and Fairfax would have us believe. Is it that inhabitants of those newsrooms actually believe what they are reporting, or is that any slander, no matter how far-fetched, serves the purpose of besmirching the Abbott government?

There's a reason why Marijuana is called "DOPE". Who will run the city when 40 percent of it's inhabitants become addicted to this stuff? This figure came from this trusted report.
There are so many arguments to be had on this topic , freedom v regulation, criminality v legality, etc, etc and those long held views are being pressed even harder now.......... and that's good!
My point here is this, and it's not one that can really be debated because the known evidence is factual.
Dope decreases ones drive to get up and go to work, fact. Although the economic reasons do seem positive at first glance, on further examination of the other effects that come from widespread and prolonged marijuana use, the economic argument is really a false positive.
Business owners and employees who do become addicted to this substance that once held a taboo of illegality (thus preventing them to even try or prolong use), will most likely see a very real change in their performance and profitability, let alone the safety and health implications.
I have a thousand reasons for why I hate the stuff and I can assure you that it doesn't make you draw or think better.
