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

Convention's nexus, the breakdown of rule of law

The Editor,

The nexus in the matrix of dysfunction created by illegal 'drugs' is the
breakdown of rule of law. Even if all the efficient production of
Afghani opium was directed towards ameliorative pain relief to the
millions who need it worldwide it would still only meet 60% of known
demand. The persistent threat to peace and stability is the United
Nations Single Convention on Narcotics and its banal enforcement that
counterproductively turns a useful and needed agricultural commodity
into conflict chemicals that destabilize economies and fund terror on
both a local and international scale. Good folk in South East Asia,
Pacific, South America, Balkans, Middle East.. and former Soviet states
suffer the same ignominy of a largely US enforced moral paradigm that is
so flawed it should be a war crime to defend drug prohibition. There is
no efficacy in continuing the insanity. Drug Policy and all that it
represents should be a focus of the global community's United Nations

Until this core humanitarian issue is fixed we are, each and everyone
of us, just pissing into the wind.

We are victims of what we condemn our neighbors to do to ourselves.
