Now possesion comes with a banning order



Given the 92 League clubs plus non-league and internationals they should have had a trial run in a single static location say....errrmm........... the House of Commons springs to mind. Surveys report massive cocaine use in there surely it would be easy to search/check people attending and spot searches of rooms/offices would work. Bans would be a very effective deterrent - then if it works there roll out across football......Prem then next year Prem + Cha'ship - next year - you get the picture.....

When ex West Brom, Notts County etc player Lee Hughes caused that fatal car crash for which he was eventually jailed, he had been doing lines as well as booze.

Replace “coke head” with “piss head” and your paragraph still works but alcohol is illegal and prohibiting it didn’t work in the US and made crime and alcoholism worse.
However, buying a bottle of red from the off licence or enjoying a few pints in the pub doesn’t cause kids to be recruited to county lines gangs, drive by shootings linked to turf wars or court cases like that recently reported in Liverpool

Effects of booze, snow and when taken together

Effects of cocaine​

Cocaine has been around for many years. It comes in two chemical forms: a water-soluble powder form and fat-soluble “free base” form. The drug has anesthetic and stimulant effectsTrusted Source.

Its influence comes on fast and is gone within a few minutes to a few hours.

How cocaineTrusted Source affects a person depends on many factors, such as the form and amount used and whether it’s smoked, snorted, injected, or taken orally. Typical effects include
  • joy from a boost in dopamine in the brain
  • more energy
  • more talkative
  • mentally alert
  • more reactive to lights, touch, and sounds
Other side effects of cocaine include:

  • rise in body temperature
  • nausea
  • moodiness
  • shakes and restlessness
  • increased heart rate and blood pressure
  • heart rhythm problems
  • heart muscle problems
  • anxiety, paranoia, panic attacks
  • drug tolerance and dependence, which can cause people to use higher doses and use more often
  • infections
  • nosebleeds
  • asthma
NOTE: This isn’t a full list of cocaine’s side effects.

Effects of alcohol​

Alcohol is a depressant. It affects the brain, including your:

  • thinking
  • behavior
  • mood
  • movement
  • judgment
Drinking too much at once (binge drinking) or heavily drinking for a long stretch of time can damage vital organs, including the:

  • heart
  • liver
  • pancreas
  • brain
Excessive alcohol use may cause:

  • high blood pressure
  • heart rhythm problems
  • heart muscle damage
  • stroke
  • liver inflammation, fatty liver, liver cirrhosis
  • inflammation of the pancreas
  • cancer

What happens when you mix cocaine and alcohol​

Increased toxic effects​

Using cocaine with alcohol creates new elements. One of the most powerful of these metabolites is called cocaethyleneTrusted Source.

This product is stronger than either cocaine or alcohol alone. It increases toxicity to the heart, liver, and other major organs.

Longer method of action​

Cocaethylene also stays around for a much longer time in the body than cocaine, and its toxic effects last longer. Alcohol also slows the removal of another metabolite, ethylbenzoylecgonine, from the kidneys. This raises the blood levels of cocaine and cocaethylene.

Increased risk of stroke​

Sudden stroke is possible when using both cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine increases the risk of stroke by:

  • shrinking blood vessels
  • raising heart rate and blood pressure
  • causing sudden brain bleeding
  • increasing risk of blood clots
Cocaethylene can raiseTrusted Source the risk of stroke even more because it can stay around in the body for days to weeks.

Exactly. That’s what prohibition does. The exact same was happening with alcohol in 1920’s America.

Legalise. Regulate. Tax.

Ex Liverpool now neutral
The Powers to be want the game and experience both on and off the pitch totaly based around the Women’s game... this is the future blueprint going forward.. did you see the way the women’s players and crowd were all totally sanitised.. no bad language.. no altercations much on the pitch... no bad songs directed towards opposition fans basically no edge at all to the whole game.. players and fans all in sync.. wanting same collective goal like robots... this sadly is the future of the men’s game too and when you factor they will soon take heading out of the game and the slide tackle it will be like a different sport watched by a different set of fans and values... it’s coming
