 What Price Clean Fun?

On the night of April 6, 2014, Queensland Police raided a bunch of commercial and residential properties in Gold Coast, wrapping up the biggest drug operation in the city’s history, arresting more than 150 people on 400 charges. The total amount of cash and drugs found during this raid equals a street value of $26 million, said Detective Superintendent David Hutchinson.
On the same night, two Surfers’ Paradise nightclubs were also raided and assets worth $5 million were restrained.
Clearly drugs are big business. The vast majority of countries are yet to legalize them, so if we put to one side the merits of the argument, the fact remains that certain drugs – like meth – have such high addictive potentials that once you’re hooked, you’re hooked. The fact the drug sellers find easy targets among the partying (and often inebriated) public in Gold Coast is alarming. Every person has a choice, yes, but we all know that our decision-making abilities go for a toss once we’ve downed a pint or six.
The onus, once again, is on the consumer. Please be careful, dear readers. You’re entitled to let your hair down now and then, but be wary that there are certain sections of people waiting for you to do just that so that they can advantage. Better safe than sorry, we say.
