    You just have to read BH to know that ;-)

    But cocaine to me is as bad as alcohol. I wouldn't want my kids around drunk people either I give you that.

    I'm just saying that people that takes recreational drugs are as bad as people drinking recreational wine.
    They're not junkies
    Gosh, you're more liberal minded than me about drugs! I would still say any drug is "worse" than alcohol, simply because of the legality of both. That being said, if I had to choose whether to deal with a person off their face on booze or dialed on cocaine, give me the cocaine high person any day of the week. But I think on the scale of "what's worse", it would go water, wine, drugs. I would struggle to ever see drugs as being comparable to wine.

    But that's a topic for another thread.....

    I can see both sides of the coin here.

    My stance is I'm totally, 100% anti illegal drugs and I HATE that they are normalised and that's where this thread seems to be headed, normalising illegal drugs and saying they're okay to take or they aren't a big deal. That's where I disagree in this thread.

    With regard to the OP I wouldn't want to find out my kids teachers were drug takers. If I knew for certain they were a drug taker, I would probably say something, but only if I knew 100% they were taking illegal drugs, not if it was rumour or hear say.

    Wow! Just wow! There are soooooo many things wrong with this statement I don't even know where to start so I won't!

    Except to say if this is what people truly think in 2015, no wonder we have an ice problem in society!

    Hmm? Cocaine is illegal. Anyone who's making the effort to source it, buy it, and use it, illegally, is definitely on a different scale to someone heading to the local BWS and buying a bottle of wine to drink with dinner.

    The supply chain for wine involves vineyards, fermentation, transport to and sale by Dan Murphys.

    The supply chain for cocaine involves murdered cops, corruption, illegal weapons, bikie wars etc. if you buy cocaine you directly support the murder of cops and the rest of the above.

    As to the OP, I would be more concerned about the BIL's friend than the teacher. Sending nude photos is one of the scummiest things you can do.

    Letting loose on the weekend is so not the same thing!
    Again, I wasn't talking about this specific case!

Not the same for everyone I'm sure but it's easy to get sucked in and have one night a week turn into a lifestyle.

    These things are illegal for a reason and I don't think you can argue that a person who breaks the law for the sake of a night of fun has the right 'moral compass' (as someone else put it) to be teaching children.

    Just my opinion.

    I could argue for days about why someone who chooses to break the law has the right moral compass to teach children. and not everyone who chooses to do drugs ends up a homeless junky with track marks and cant look after themselves. some highly educated people who know all about the effects of drugs still choose to do them for fun. They are illegal yes but there are many differing arguments as to why. dont get me wrong im not advocating everyone go out and rack up lines of coke tonight. But theres more to it than peoples first knee jerk reactions.

    I don't really give a **** why people choose to take illegal drugs or what their excuses are. I wouldn't want a drug user taking care of my child. Maybe other people don't care, but I do. And if I had proof that someone who was meant to be responsible for my child was going out and taking drugs on the weekend, I would absolutely report them.

    I wonder what people's attitudes would be if these illicit drugs were not criminalized.

    Alcohol was illegal once, but because now it's not, people think it's okay to drink, even though alcohol causes more deaths than illegal drugs. Same with tobacco.

    Not to say drugs are okay...but I find it strange when people are for alcohol and tobacco or are at least fine with them, but against other drugs. They can still ruin lives. Drugs were de-criminalized in Portugal around 10 years ago and the outcome has actually been somewhat positive.

    As long as she isn't recommending drugs to her students and doesn't come to work smelling of alcohol/drugs or is intoxicated, it's no one's business what she does.

    As for the photos...guys like that deserve to be arrested for distributing porn without consent. He's disgusting. Boys should be taught not to do that sort of sh!t. But as usual, women mostly get the blame because how stupid of her to be trusting (although yes, lapse in judgement yada yada). Maybe if society expected better of our boys and men, things would change.

    She shouldn't be getting punished like that for living her life.
