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

Milton Friedman is no dopehead.

But that's his hallowed name atop the list of more than 500 economists who've signed an open letter asking our Drug War-addled politicians to stop the prohibition of marijuana and instead legalize it and tax it.

The petition asks the president, Congress and state officials to wake up, smell the ganja and look honestly at 'The Budgetary Implications of Marijuana Prohibition,' a report recently done by Harvard economics professor Jeffrey Miron."
