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

Letter to the Editor.


Dear Sir/Madam,

The taxing of illegal substances especially prevelent marijuana,
purportedly to aid 'voluntory compliance' and revenue for law enforcment
is laughable. This administrative absurdity is predicated on a drug war
that has failed on their watch. Law administrators desire to be rewarded
for creating the very trade they incentivised, subsidised by the illicit
differential. It will entrench the war on some substances and enable
targeting of low level consumers as the size of the net shrinks. Mayhem
will ensue. Deviancy amplification will now be associated with tax
avoidance and mere 'cash' will become suspicious. Police, money and
drugs corrupt as authority asserts its right to be right. This circular
tautology is at the expense of people who have nothing to do with drugs.

response. Thank You)
