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

On Underage Drinking

"Reporters who cover teen drinking often take the values hidden in the discussion of risks related to teen alcohol use for granted. But in order to develop effective policies for dealing with underage alcohol abuse, these assumptions need to be exposed, questioned, and challenged so that parents and politicians can explore a whole range of solutions and make the best choices for their kids."

It is a shame that so much media attention is given to left testicles, oddly worded emails, tit-for-tat who said what but the core issues that underpin the sensibilities of the nation are ignored. Because it is just too difficult ? - I dont beleive it. Intellectually dishonest comes to mind.... especially as the two likely coalition 'confidence and supply' partners, United Future, NZ Ist along with Jim Andertons Progressive Party are sellouts to evidence based policy formulation on alcohol, and just about everything else youth can get there hands on.

Media, Complicit... You bet.
