MP correct to slam silly Sting
By thisislancashire – Friday 19 January 1996
WHAT’S the message that come across to the kids when a multi-millionaire pop star admits taking the “rave” drug Ecstasy and calls for it to be legalised?
The wrong one, we are afraid – that it’s OK to do “E.”
How stupid and irresponsible of superstar Sting, then, to demand for this drug to be made legal.
And we say that even though to legalise the drug might take the trade out of the hands of criminals who have no qualms about selling adulterated stuff. For, wherever it comes from, Ecstasy is deadly dangerous, as the needless deaths of some 50 youngsters have shown.
Anyone who invites more of that is a reckless fool.
We join Ribble Valley MP Nigel Evans, who is already waging war on so-called designer drugs, in slamming this silly singer.
