Alternattiva Demokratika is the only party that addresses the fact that the war on drugs has failed and needs to be re-thought.
Among others we have three main proposals: That personal use is decriminalized, that there is a classification between soft and hard drugs and that cultivation for personal use is considered as personal use and not a separate crime that carries a minimum prison sentence.
Yet, the PNPL ended up talking about drugs anyway. For all the wrong reasons.
In an electoral campaign that is based mostly on scandals involving members of both parties, the PN attacked the PL for having Toni Abela in the knowledge of drugs being taken in a PL club and not reporting it.
The PL attacked back on their newspaper Maltastar.
From “your party is more corrupt than usour party” the talk of the campaign is changing into “your followers use more drugs than ours”.
2000 votes in one district can elect an AD deputy. A deputy focused on the issues that really affect the Maltese people rather than hiding the skeletons in his closet.
A deputy that will insist all drug users should not be arrested. Not only if they’re his party’s supporters snorting cocaine in the party club’s toilet.
