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

Labour to target drug-fuelled offenders

'tough on crime and tough on causes of crime'.

Politics is getting dumber and dumber - Goff, Hawkins, Swain and Ryall are at it again.

With the inescapable relationship between crime, votes and prejudice on the hustings, debate has decended to new levels of debasement.
Profering success as failure and failure as success each is outdoing the others stupidity touting bland repression rhetoric over harm reducing regulation. They even call the second highest rate of incarceration in the western world 'a success'.

If how many are in prison is proof of success God save us from failure... say the Mild Greens.

[extract from STUFF Friday 2nd Sept]
Making drug-crazed offenders more culpable would be implemented through a change to the Sentencing Act and would apply to all crimes and all drugs. It is in response to public fears about the prevalence of the drug P in high-profile violence cases.

Until now, judges have not been able to reduce or increase sentences based on the offender's drug use at the time of the crime.

As well as taking a harder line on drugs, Labour's wide-ranging policy proposes a review of the various laws barring impersonation of government agents to see whether they can be streamlined or bolstered."
