drug user in St Annes church grounds

Yesterday around 6pm we parked in the Council car park, I was perturbed to see what looked like the lady in the green dress who asks for her 70p train fare home, injecting herself in the groin half undressed. Sort of upset me for some reason that it was being done openly and in the graveyard.

Its rather unfortunate, but this is an issue that could be handled vastly better than at present, and not through draconian measures. The UK needs to seriously review the Portugal model on how it treats drug addiction/use, and we all need to have a sensible and grown up debate about it. Sadly its unlikely we will have an intelligent discussion because of the negative connotations of one word, "drugs", to describe these biologically active compounds - too much hysteria and emotion that drowns out rational thought, pragmatism and common sense.

Jan seriously - your spelling and grammar are appalling and therefore it's so easy to dismiss what may well be useful comments. I'd suggest you read and re-read your posts before posting - then you'll be taken seriously. Sorry - harsh I know.

The emphasis is always on other people to sort the junkies out. The council, the police, the NHS...it's always some one else's responsibility....never the user. It was their choice to chuck that vile $h1t up their arms or nose.

@above, no the emphasis has not been enough on that, hence why the problem is growing. We know humans aren't a particularly responsible species and prone to making sometimes bad choices. These kinds of problems affect more than the individual though, so we should as a society help each other out. Its in everyone's best interest.

Is that the tall lady with blonde hair who shouts at abs is disgusting to her stuffy dog whilst marching around Lewes?

Filthy junkie scumbag probably discarded her needle on the floor for some innocent kid to find.

@biggles - thats speculation, maybe she did, maybe she didn't, we'll never know. Best to just solve the problem by changing policies at government level and adopting strategies that work well elsewhere, rather than getting frustrated at individual drug addicts who may or may not discard needles carelessly. Current draconian laws, and lack of drug-addiction support clearly do little to help.

There I was, resting peacefully @ St. Anne's when I saw a horrible sight, like what I aint seen since my internment in 1860. Set me a turnin' it did. God help me if I have to come back like them Hindus says.

No it was the red headed lady who always needs 70p to get home. There were two of them. I must confess to a lack of compassion about it, and not good in a graveyard in broad daylight.
