Politicians saying 'no' to drugs

In a development likely to terrify elected representatives everywhere,Greenlandic MPs have been debating mandatory drugs testing for MPs.

"Opposition MP Doris Jakobsen introduced the bill to parliament this week and is due to be debated in parliament today. The administration, however, has announced that it would not support testing that singled out an individual group."We're against the idea of forced or voluntary testing, unless it would help the police solve a case," the administration wrote in its reply to the proposal". 
Must say I would not expect there to be much of a narcotic scene in Godthåb and beyond, given the lack of opportunities for growing the key plants and the cost of getting good to market as it were.  However, this suggests that GL has a higher level of cocaine use than France.  Unexpected.

Anyway, I am inclined to agree with the Greenlandic government on this one, although heaven knows how many foolish laws would not have been passed if our parliamentarians were only allowed to vote after passing a breathalyser test.  Ms Jakobsen has a web presence here, although given that my Greenlandic is a bit rusty, the only word I understood was Tae Kwon Do.  Presumably she can handle herself.

May I suggest mandatory sedation. That way they can't get up to any more mischief.
