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

Tory contender calls for more liberal drug laws

"David Cameron, the Tory leadership contender, believes the UN should consider legalising drugs and wants hard-core addicts to be provided with legal 'shooting galleries' and state-prescribed heroin.

He also supported calls for ecstasy to be downgraded from the class-A status it shares with cocaine and heroin and said it would be 'disappointing' if radical options on the law on cannabis were not looked at."
His remarks will shock many Tories MPs who have traditionally taken a hard line on drug possession and use. The leadership contender said he favoured "fresh thinking and a new approach" towards drugs policy

Now here is a chalenge for New Zealand - a debate on drug policy?
While the tyranny of the minority Peter Dunne is chatting with Prime Minister Helen Clark and Leader of the Opposition Don Brash about "maintaining cannabis prohibition' in the face of exonerative evidence for change the drug isse remains undiscussed on the hustings.

No wonder we have 'non-participation' in society!
