Why aren't Polish dope-promoters prosecuted?

This bit of information about police seizing 18,000 portions of ampha in Bielsko-Biała in itself is not a major development, but it does raise a serious question. The only way to resolve the drug problem is by focusing on the demand end. As long as there are nutters who want to ingest poison, the problem will not go away. But Poland has laws against inciting or instigating criminal activity. Why are pop culture representatives (performers, composers, journalists, publishers, film makers, etc.), who effectively normative drug-taking by glamourising it as cool and trendy, not charged with inciting criminal activity. It is they, not parents, schools, the church, etc., who encourage young people to reach for and often become addicted to various stupefying substances.

Such an approach together with a serious crackdown on drug dealers and a dynamic anti-drug information campaign might achieve the results vote-seeking politicians only spout pious platitudes about.

A very good question. Personally I blame the parents of such 'musicians': if they hadn't failed so miserably in their task of bringing up their children, those children wouldn't have grown up to be such a force for evil.

Could you perhaps show us examples within the Polish media?

How about alcohol and cigarettes? Is it okay to promote them just because they are legal drugs?

Can you give examples of Amphetamine Sulphate being 'promoted' in Poland?

Ideally, no addictives nor antisocial or cirminal behaviouir (wife beating, murder, rape, fraud, arson, etc.) should be glamourised, but enforcement may prove difficult.
However the overall decline in tobacco use clearly proves the effectvieness of all-pervasive anti-smoking propaganda. In the US there are health wernings on alcohol labels but I haven't seen that in Poland yet. What about other EU countries?

In Poland, I doubt that. So many people smoke. Scary.
In France, there may be a decline. Due to increased prices, and strict regulations for smokers in many public places.

So where is this promotion of Amphetamine Sulphate that enraged you so much that you started a thread about it?

Surely you do not wish to imply that a certain somebody posts on PF while tired and emotional?!

Ah yes, the vulnerable young people, who in the same post you refer to as

nutters who want to ingest poison,

Which is it Polonius?
Thank god most people don't share your horribly narrow minded view of the world is all I have to say.

Seriously ? Amphetamines ??
The largest group that take speed are truck drivers and shift workers. I don't lose any sleep ( pun intended ) thinking about the social problems that speed causes. More worried about a truck rolling through my living room.
