    Well and good. You are, of course, allowed to hold whatever opinion you like. When you see someone say, dying in agony from cancer, be sure to let them know that in your opinion, they should not be allowed to use a natural and proven effective drug to cope with said pain.
    But your statement brings me back to my original point.
    You said the greens wish to legalise drugs.
    To clarify, the greens support the regulation of one currently illegal drug to be utilised under medical supervision and for medicinal use only. If you read the policy I linked, you'd also see they have firm stance on ensuring people can access drug rehab programs. They are also committed to reducing smoking.
    Have your opinion, sure, no probs with that. But get your facts straight first, that's all I'm saying.

    Well said I haven't seen a better policy on substance abuse than this one.

    WTF is a "Dad moment' and how does it excuse making a sexist comment that in any other place of employment would very likely have you reprimanded?

    He wasn't having a "Dad moment" what ever the F that means. He was having just another misogynistic FW moment. He seems to have lots of these, as in 24/7 lots.

    ETA: Quote from Annabel Crabb on the ABC today

    What is the female equivalent of the "dad moment"? Surely not the "mum moment", which would probably involve just dropping everybody to footy practice while making a work call and constructing a rabbit costume out of toilet rolls and tissue paper.
