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

Scoop: A Case of Prohibition 'at its very worst.'

The Case of Neville Yates.

19 October 2004

Today the Jury deliberated and found him guilty.

Judge Holderness who remanded Neville on bail was at pains to point out that his previous convictions, including jail for cannabis cultivation, all medicinal use, indicated a probable further jail term. Sentencing NOV 2.

Neville's in person, in court, and sworn medical evidence from his Doctors (x3) was considered irrelevant.

ALCP President and drug policy researcher Kevin O'Connell, who's evidence was accepted reluctantly by Holderness and heard by the jury, pointed out that there were about 80,000 NZ'ers growing there own stash.

Like sending Neville to jail was going to stop them...

The rest of the Press Release is at Scoop: A Case of Prohibition 'at its very worst.'
