Eltham man sentenced after 45 wraps of Class A drugs found

A man from Eltham caught with 45 wraps of Class A drugs in Gravesend has been sentenced to a year’s extra prison time.

Micheal Peters, who formerly lived at Eltham Green Road, was pulled over on November 9th last year and is already serving four years and three months in December 2018 for separate charges of supplying crack cocaine and heroin.

He wasn’t the smartest cookie as he tried to hide items down his trousers resulting in them hanging low prompting suspicion.

So that’s one more dealer off the streets but really, is this going to do anything about the drug issue? For 50 years this has been going on since the “war on drugs” begun and as soon as one person is jailed another replaces them.

Many other countries have now given up on the same old routines after decades of failure and gone done the route of treating addicts and decriminalising (or sometimes legalising less harmful substances) alongside regulation. It saves huge sums and frees up police time, as well as reducing related crime such as burglaries from addicts to fund their habit. Taking supply away from gangs lessens crime in that area too.

But whilst much of the world goes in that direction the UK staggers on but changing little.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    By staggering on in the War on Drugs, we empathise our position as America’s Number 1 Lap Dog!
    We, as a Nation, need to take the lead in dealing with the scourge of drugs, take its distribution out of the hands of the UnderWorld, and empathising treatment through taxed sales by our Government!
