Taking to social media, Neville Ciantar, a Maltese off-road professional driver, lamented the apparent hypocrisy he has experienced as of late.
He started his post saying how going off-roading led to fines and the confiscation of his vehicle. He also experienced the same reactions by authorities when it came to tinted windows on vehicles, going camping and practicing hunting by the rules.
He contrasted this with the use of drugs which, for Ciantar, seems to be getting a pass.
‘You can carry 500 pills of ecstasy or a quarter of a kilo of cocaine. You can smoke whatever amount of marijuana you want anywhere you want. But no worries…’
‘Is this right’, asked Ciantar. He suspects that this hypocrisy is in place due to those enforcing such rules must love the drugs themselves.
‘They surely don’t want anything good for our youth’, he concluded.
The post was met with overall support, with over 150 likes and 44 comments expressing similar sentiments.
