Jacqui Smith: How To Take Drugs And Get Away With It

by | 15th, May 2008

SAYS JACQUI Smith, the Home Secretary: “Under my own guidelines, had I been caught in possession over 18 I should have been charged.”

Although what with the schizophrenic properties of weed, she cannot be certain when it was exactly, and neither can she.

Smith made a note of it somewhere, and passed over the file to a data management company for safe keeping, but they’ve mislaid it and now there is a lack of proof about whatever it was she was saying earlier.

The caller to BBC Radio 5 wants to know if Smith’s arrest would have meant she could have taken the job of Home Secretary?

Says Smith: “Home…? Oh yes. “No, I would not – which is why what I did was wrong.”

It turns out that getting caught is the main, and so long as you don’t get caught taking drugs you can be a fit and proper person for any job, including that of overseeing UK drugs policy and banning people from taking them lest they be driven criminally insane…
