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

Tough on crime and tough on causes of crime.

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

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.
(this is the punitive vengeful mandatory minimums by another name. An unmitigated disaster and the engine behind the prison industrial complex in the USA. Nearly every State in the Union is going broke trying to maintain the indefensible. Prisons or Hospitals and Schools? /Blair)

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.
Impersonating intelligence should be a capital offence... / Blair
