Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Barbarism In New Zealand: Lies Have Consequences.

Barbarism In New Zealand: Lies Have Consequences.

[Excerpt] Now comes another story from New Zealand that demonstrates that the lies and hatred spread by decades of prohibitionist propaganda can drag any society down into depths of mindless cruelty.

Once again, I am indebted to Blair Anderson of the New Zealand Mild Greens for bringing this to my attention. There are some great activist down there. I was pleased to post an excellent essay by Blair and Kevin O�Connell in 2000.
See New Zealanders� Analysis of the Consequences of the Violence of Marijuana Prohibition. Bravo!

The victim in this case is, Neville Yates, a one-legged medical cannabis user, who suffered brain damage when he was hit by a truck when he was 14, and has been in a wheelchair ever since. In fact, there are many parallels with the case of the DC quadriplegic. We can only hope that this story does not end the same way, but the signs are not hopeful. Despite clear police perjury, the judge instructed the jury to find him guilty and they complied.
