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

Ministry of Silly Rules � Dopey Stoners

[ The UFO Party is really scraping the bottom of the barrel here! /Blair ]

The government�s decision to hold a select committee inquiry on hate speech created a whole new avenue of grievance for those with a victim mentality.

In their submission to the committee, the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party claimed that the illegal status of cannabis �stigmatises an extremely large proportion of the population, and is inciting division, misunderstanding and hatred amongst Kiwis.

The day to day use of perjorative terms relating to the crude description of marijuana as �dope�, particularly in the media, and by politicians, is offensive to our membership. We believe such language is bullying, and sends a very dangerous message to society.

That�s dopey stoners for you.

But surely the government won�t take any notice of this sort of rubbish, you say? Well think again. A Ministry of Youth Development drug education handbook released last year claimed that schools should avoid promoting abstinence in case it �stigmatises experimentation with drugs as deviant behaviour�. At United Future we reckon it is high time to bring back some common sense."
