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

Guidelines needed for cannabis - EPMU

"Though cannabis is illegal, its use is widespread and employers have to deal with that reality everyday," said David Lowe, EMA's Manager of Employment Relations Services.

"'Businesses seem to be blamed for workplace accidents and face huge fines; anything to help reduce the risk of an accident is welcome.

'A new law to make an illegal substance even more illegal in some circumstances, is unlikely to work.

'Testing employees for cannabis use is already fraught with difficulties, let alone working out the levels causing impaired judgment, or the duration of intoxication.

'A code of workplace practice is needed as a guide to managers on how long safety concerns remain after cannabis use.'"
