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

Drug dealing computer game withdrawn

South Africa Computer Magazine - Drug dealing computer game withdrawn

The New Zealand maker of a computer game involving violence and the selling of drugs has withdrawn the product from sale.

The Dope Game was being distributed by Auckland based online company 89 Games.

It focuses on drug lords earning money by growing marijuana and making hash, opium, morphine and heroin.

The Department of Internal Affairs has submitted the game for classification by the Chief Censor and the game's creator, who wants to remain anonymous, says that has forced him to withdraw it.

Chief censor Bill Hastings says they will continue to review the computer game. Hastings says a decision will be made in about three weeks.

---------- ends ----------
As a thinking New Zealander, I am embarrased. The game is a product of the culture of prohibition and they want to (even consider) to ban its sale or use?

You cant have kids blowing away competative dealers... or seeing prohibition for the phoney war that it is. Its not a drug war. Is a war on people and this game should be a teaching aid!

Quick, hide your books.
Shut down your imagination.
And crack open a case of Steinlager!
