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 Futures 2025

The UK Office of Science and Technology, as part of its "Foresight" project, has recently released a number of scientific reviews and other papers that discuss psychoactive drugs and brain science.

One of the more interesting of these is "Drug Futures 2025" which examines possible future courses of human drug use, given contemporary social, economic and technological trends. MAPS members will be interested in (all too brief) references to spiritual uses of psychoactives and psychedelic therapeutics.
