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

Libz cannabis policy "common sense"

Scoop: Libz cannabis policy "common sense": "'Vote Libertarianz for legal cannabis,' was the message of Libertarianz Drug Deregulation spokesman Dr. Richard Goode today. 'The Greens have dropped the ball on this issue,' says Goode. 'While Libertarianz promotes complete legalisation, the Greens have demoted their former cannabis legalisation advocate, Nandor Tanczos, to a precarious seventh place on their list. Tanczos is now proposing instead that cannabis smokers receive instant $100 fines for lighting up.' Goode describes Tanczos' decriminalisation proposal as 'one giant leap backwards for the Greens.'"

Goode points out that the ACT party, too, while advocating Zero Tolerance for Crime, refuses to draw any distinction between real crimes for which there should be zero tolerance, and victimless crimes which should be removed from the statute books forthwith.

Goode concludes: "The ACT Party wants to lock people up for 'crimes' against themselves; the Benighted Future Party wants to lock them up for use of imaginary drugs; the Labour and National Parties want to lock them up because they can; the Green Party wants to fine people for smoking cannabis, and lock them up for growing their own or for supplying. Only Libertarianz advocates full, complete and unalloyed legalisation, as a matter of urgency."
