Lets decriminalise drugs to end drug abuse:Global drug policy panel

That is the best idea. At least it's a step towards removing the hypocrisy of "cannabis is a soft drug cause it's natural" ummm nope! Cocaine and heroin are both "natural



It is well gone beyond time for us to have a sensible and mature policy regarding narcotics. Legalise, regulate, tax. Get it out out of the hands of criminals, off the streets, demystify it. What sort of mad world are we in when I can legally buy as much alcohol as I can drink but can't legally enjoy a pill or a line (not that I do anymore) It's time for bold, grown up thinking on this. Not only for those who use the third world folk who produce it. Billions wasted annually on an unwinnable war, countless lives lost, countless prison spaces we can change it all if we got some balls.

What should be Governments next step with the excess black money it gets its hands on?

This move would not solve the problem of unaccounted money that are parked in Tax havens abroad, thus bringing back normality of ensuring 14 lakhs crore new currency notes before the upcoming Budget ,itself possess a logistic challenge to the bankers. The government and the authorities are working round the clock and a substantial gain to the Indian economy from this move would be experienced in the coming months .

When will Army get the OROP it deserves?

aarth dhar had posted

Implementation of OROP is non empowering in nature. It is imp for govt to implement what it has promised, it must rather start empowering these retiree into an asset. Not



Armed forces need young blood and as a result a large number of soldiers retire at an early age. Post retirement jobs are not guaranteed and hence they find it extremely difficult to support their family. According to the Koshiyari Committee, the attrition rate and the vacancy level is very high in armed forces. Therefore, a robust and attractive recruitment process is necessary and OROP if implemented will ensure an honorable and secure future for the soldiers. The present Govt. had made OROP as one of their promises during Lok Sabha election and even the Supreme Court underlined the need for OROP. It is now time to deliver the promise.

Global warming the greatest scam in history - John Coleman, Co-founder Weather Channel

The earth’s CO2 levels have reached in all time high during 2015 at 400 ppm. This explains why the earth continues to get hotter and hotter year after year. Humans continue to emit large amounts of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, which act as a blanket in the atmosphere. This means that the sun’s heat is trapped which warms the earth. This unnatural increase in temperature can cause drastic consequences.

The Olympics Cost Cities Dearly And Rio Is No Exception

Until the 60s, the Olympics were a "make do" thing. They fitted in with what was there. Building stadia for a 3 week contest is one of the most stupid, staggering wastes of money imaginable.

The numerous factors that made the IITs excellent are being whittled away by creating more and more IITs

Imparting good education is something that cannot be the judged by the funding agencies. In modern economic driven by paymasters it is wrong to expect good education from institutes funded by politicians or promoted by industry. Industry has nothing to do with intellectual development. And politicians are trained to corrupt IITs just as their own private colleges. Students are well aware of this scenario and they join IITs primarily on the road to money making careers and not for research. Or, are too readily guided into professional careers looking at the dismal management policies inside the best of the institutes. Good quality education is & will be only be on an individual basis. Individuals interested in education and research, not in salary, post and perks. It might be individuals who have already preformed and earned thru hard labour and cherish to impart education to gen-x in their later years. It boils down to individual effort not institutional.

The US elections is not the only elections that should be on your radar. UN might and should have a women Secretary General

IMO disband the U.N getttheir deadbeat members to pay up their parking tickets and stop committing felonies in the U.S, have the U.N "aid workers" stop raping children and form a new international organization which requires some level of actual respect for human rights and freedom. I mean I know an organization that had nations like Iran, Cuba and Libya on a human rights commission should be taken really seriously and I particularly like how the only human rights abuser on the Earth in their estimation is the nation of Israel-but really-lets shut this farce down and try and come up with something that is not morally bankrupt..

How long can China’s economy be this Strong ?

China is very fortunate to have big government at this junction. These outlays on subways, sewage systems and affordable housing will create jobs for many, use up excess production capacity of steel, cement etc. for the present and will have a multiplier effect for the future. In contrast, the politicians in the US are still debating endlessly as to what to do while the economy is stagnating resulting in many people on food stamps or unemployed. China has become the scapegoat for all these ills for "manipulating" her currency, dumping of cheap goods etc. Neither Hilary Clinton nor Trump in the current election campaign is brave enough to admit that the US defence expenditure of more than the next eight countries combined, is unsustainable and that this money should be diverted to infrastructure in order to propel development for the future.
