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

Mr Horn, Help me out here,

re: County Supervisor Horn To Introduce Anti-Marijuana Initiative   21st March 2005   KFMBTV  San Diego


Bill Horn's advocacy for HARM, the 'Health Advocates Rejecting Marijuana' initiative is strikingly ironic when one considers the social implications of the latest Seattle/Washington call to medicalise all illicit drugs. County Supervisor Horn may find it odd that this legalise drugs call is not from some marginalised band of lazy radicals.

Compared to his small stake holder list of treatment providers the learned folk from the King County Medical Society, Physicians for Social Responsibility and Washington Family Physicians, with the professional associations of Osteopathic Medical, State Pharmacy, Psychiatric, Psychological, Public Health, Addiction Medicine and the Loren Miller, King County  and State Bar Associations support a drug war exit strategy, the medicalisation of all illicit drugs. [ G. JOHNSON / APReuters.]

Mr Horn, help me out here, what do you know about 'first do no harm'  that these accredited Washington public health and law folk do not?


BTW Christchurch is the Sister City of Seattle... My blog below tracks the thread..
