A NEW high-level report on drug policy makes so much sense that people reading it have had to double check they are not off their tits.
The report, produced by a panel of international statesmen who probably do not own one of those really, really big bongs, said the war on drugs is unwinnable and calls for all the things that experts who know exactly what they are talking about have been saying for years.
The Global Commission on Drug Policy includes former UN chief Kofi Annan, Greek prime minister George Papandreou, former US Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker and former US secretary of state, George Shultz. That’s right, former US secretary of state, George Shultz.
And, just so you know you are not toasted like a crumpet, that was ‘former US secretary of state, George Shultz’.
Meanwhile, experts immediately pointed out that it was not Pete Doherty, Joan Baez or someone called ‘Cheech’.
Home secretary, Theresa May, said: “Decriminalisation, controlled sale, undermining drug gangs, extra help for addicts, political courage. Oh Jesus, I must be fucked out of my bonce.
“Hang on, let me read it again.
“Decriminalisation, controlled sale, undermining drug gangs, extra help for addicts, political courage. Ooooooh maaaaan. Quick – how many fingers have I got?”
After being examined by a doctor who confirmed the home secretary was not freaking like a monkey, May put the report in the bin, set fire to the room the bin was in and then bulldozed the street the room was in.
Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies said: “George Shultz was one of Ronald Reagan’s closest friends. He wasn’t exactly baked out of his Christian conservative skull when Reagan was bombing Libya.
“He is also 90 and does not have a suspiciously large number of heat lamps in his attic.”
Nevertheless the report was immediately dismissed as ‘naive’ by some 14 year-old Oxfordshire ponce who has been prime minister of Britain for about 20 minutes.
Julian Cook, who has now read the report three times while walking up and down in a straight line, said: “I had to be really sure because I once read an official report on drug policy that was totally sensible but the next morning I realised I had actually been reading the back of a large box of Frosties. Upside down.
“I still think that crazy tiger should be King of the World.”
