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 string of straw men - DEA, Release, 04/26/05

Karen Tandy, a DEA administrator and chair of the IACP Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs committee elevates the craft of propaganda to high art.

Pity that its content a fiction created by selective associations and a string of straw men.

Published in the March issue of Police Chief Magazine, an official publication of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, it claims to represent 'the truth' about cannabis. History may record it as a milestone in the shameful use of exceptions and deceptions to assist Police self interest in prohibition 'at all costs'

Tandy's 'line in the sand' is utterly inconsistent with the considered issues, reports and recommendations by non-aligned civil society organisations the likes of King County Bar Association (washington state)

Be afraid, very afraid.
