Campbell Live---keep up the pressure on these low-life sellers of 'hell.'

I have switched channels lately as Campbell Live concentrates on exposing the activities of the sellers of so-called 'legal highs.' These parasites care nothing for the misery they cause; not just to the users, many of whom are barley teenagers, but to the families who have to try to pick up the pieces after the insidious substances have done their damage.
How can these 'businesses' justify their stance---that they are merely  providing what the 'community' wants? Would they let members of their own families partake in the substances they so willingly sell to others?
Good on you, TV3---keep showing the faces behind the misery. Let us see who they are, so that we can shun them, avoid them, not include them in our circles, not let them belong to our friendship groups or clubs. Then again, they are probably transitory 'citizens' within our neighbourhoods, moving from town to city, island to island as they go about their evil trade. I see them as little different to those who cook 'P' (Methamphetamine) in  the motels, flats, apartments, outbuildings and even mobile labs (Vans), spreading their own brand of destruction, the only divergence being that one is still legal!
Know who is selling the 'legal highs' in your community. Let them know how you feel about their chosen career. Confront them, but do not put yourself in danger. Perhaps it would be best to achieve your goal of ridding your community of these leeches by joining up with friends and neighbours in the latter exercise.
Mr Dunne (You know the Cabinet Minister, who has a son who is the legal brains behind the trade)  says the laws he introduced will eventually cut into the ranks of those selling 'legal highs.' That is not good enough, Mr Dunne. Yes, I know there are issues around a complete ban and that there will be an element of 'forcing the substances underground' or into the hands of the gangs, but even that would mean that our corner shops are not openly selling. You must, on our behalf, find a way of banning these 'new' products. Do that, and the people of your electorate may even vote you back in for yet another term. If not---well---you know what to do, voters in Mr Dunne's electorate!
