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

A Right-Wing Call for Pot Legalization

Leading Conservative politician Peter Lilley, has publicly stated that he thinks cannabis should be decriminalized in Britain and sold through government licensed outlets, like those in the Netherlands.

Lilley, who served under prime ministers Margaret Thatcher and John Major, has been considered one of the more right-wing members of the party, The Daily Telegraph says.

But Lilley defended his position by saying the law on cannabis is unenforceable and indefensible in a country where alcohol and nicotine are legal.

The marked change on policy by Lilley is seen as a public relations move to make the Conservative Party more voter friendly amid perceptions in some sectors that its policies are intolerant and regressive.
