Here we go again... UK Prime Minister urges nerds to come up with magic crypto backdoors

*Strongly* disagree with the view of her being barely competent as a constituency MP. As someone with political views to the left of Tony Benn I am no fan of her politically, but she's a good MP for her constituents, regular surgeries and meeting with people, and helping as their representative. She keeps getting re-elected as people in Maidenhead often seem to have a confused view about politics - I was quizzed as to how I would consider voting Labour as I owned my own house. A mortgage, hardly owning it, and I'm keen on the redistribution of wealth, improvements of public services etc.

Has "...a drug dealer temporary giving freebies to create a pool of future addicted customers..." ever really happened outside of fiction or a New Model Army song? Genuine question - from experience I never saw this happen and I could see this model be easily exploited by existing drug users. Yes, I'm sure there'll be an isolated example that was, or could appear to be, this - but did this ever happen wholesale?
