Once on a trip to Amsterdam as a young student, but I am not a smoker and I have never taken any illegal drugs. I have seen the effects of drugs in my teaching life and in my community activism and as a public representative. When you see what drugs do, they have stolen generations and you see the effects it has on children. It passes on huge problems which they have for the rest of their lives. My own personal decision and what I have done in my own private life in not ever taking any illegal drugs is fuelled by my experiences. I didn’t break the law. I was a student, I was in Amsterdam, it was the weekend. I am not a smoker. I do what most students do.
