    John, I have always been a bit naive, even in the late 50s in the UK music scene a great banjo/guitar player in one of the bands I played with smoked a corn cob pipe it did not smell of tobacco to me, when asked he said it was herbal tobacco, so I just accepted it now I am beginning to wonder.
    Do you think the judicial system is too soft on these drug pushers? maybe take a tougher approach and kill the Ba$ta....

    Quite right Colin. Since the reform a lot of them are even worse as they are not accountable. They just turn up to get their allowance. I also had a friend who smoked "herbal tobacco" when I was 16 years. Funnily enough he was the one who really got me into jazz. Some of my friends who appreciated PINK Floyd also smoked it

    I count myself lucky that being unaware that I was surrounded by these puffers at certain gigs I can still say I have never tried even one little puff nore had any desire to do so...

    I was a pipe puffer 35-40 years ago but even then it was an anti social act, I stopped smoking about that time. Did you hear about the meth bust here in NZ, approx 1/2 billion NZ dollars it was a comedy of errors that you wouldn't believe.

    WOW. WOW WOW and WOW again. The British people have voted to leave the EU. Several other countries have also suggested that they would like to leave as well. This really is a momentous occasion. Now for a brave new world

    Having just listened to a sitting MP from UKIP explaining why they need time I.e. 6 months or even longer to formulate their plans of exit and beyond, I am astonished at the lack of fore sight and forward planning, of this and all other parties what on earth have they been doing for the last 2 years or so. They should be able to hit the ground running.

    Colin. Not only do we have to untangle ourselves from the EU we also have to pass new laws to replace the EU laws which will not have any relevance once we split. The whole process will take a MINIMUM of two years. AS our PM is not standing down until October we can not even start until then and a new one is elected. Also the EU will not even talk about it until article 50 is invoked which is the official notice that we are leaving the EU and which the current prime minister will not issue.

    teddy I'm sure you are right but from an outsiders point of view it seems one heck of a mess, looks as if other countries plus N Ireland and Scotland wish to stay with the EU and split from England? I can only wonder what the future will hold for them but I think England will be better off out of the EU.
