Why not try the US response. Admit something is addictive. Admit they cannot enforce laws that try to curb whatever is addictive. Create new taxes for it and claim the revenue will be used to offset the bad things the addiction costs society. Use part of the money to create a few token awareness programs that appear to educate the public about how harmful the addiction is. Then use the remaining revenue for pet projects that reward the businesses owned by large campaign contributors or even the very politicians that passed the tax.

Net Neutrality Shouldn't Be Up To The Corporations, I say
Sorry Republicans. I see what you are up to, and although your corruption may win, you most certainly haven't fooled me. Not. One. Bit. -- "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." -- Benito Mussolini
Re: Net Neutrality Shouldn't Be Up To The Corporations, I say
Well lessee now. The Demonicrats want the FCC with it's long history of doing little to nothing so that THEIR contributers don't get harmed and the RepublicRats want to bring in the FTC, which has little to no experience and has laws to use that don't really fit too many situations, so that THEIR contributors don't get harmed, so either way, IF you're expecting The Party to fix this mess, ain't gonna happen. The Party is making too much money with things just the way they are. Great country Amerika...huh.
Want change? Get rid of the Party boys and elect some statesmen and patriots. Start at your Town/City Hall and work up to the State level and then the Federal.

Last week, YOUR Government announced to the world that it is OK to Murder an American Citizen overseas by drone attack and to a week later murder his teenage son by drone attack, because the Father said bad things about Amerika. No right to trial by a jury of his peers, no trial at all in fact. Tried, Convicted and Executed by The Party. Where is that in our beloved Constitution? Next it will be US here.. in our homes.
The ONE thing that separated this nation from every other nation on the planet... Our Constitution and the rights it gave each and every citizen of this country has been destroyed by a gang of thugs. YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS.
