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

Lindisfarne pupil expelled for cannabis, Hawkes Bay NZ

Hawkes Bay Today: "Lindisfarne pupil expelled for cannabis offence

22.11.2005 REON SUDDABY

A Lindisfarne College student has been expelled from the school and may face criminal charges after he allegedly tried to sell cannabis to other students.

Although the school is remaining tight-lipped about the incident, Lindisfarne College Board of Trustees chairman John Wakeman confirmed the 16-year-old had been expelled from the school, following an incident a fortnight ago.

Mr Wakeman refused to comment on the specifics of the matter, as he understood the boy could end up appearing in court.

Hastings police Senior Constable Ross Stewart confirmed the student had been referred to youth aid for possessing cannabis for supply.

The student was found with three and a half cannabis 'bullets' at the school.

Rumours circulating around the school suggested the cannabis had been laced with methamphetamine, or 'P', but Mr Stewart yesterday confirmed that was not the case. A decision would probably be made in the next week whether the youth would be prosecuted.

Mr Wakeman said the matter had been brought to the attention of authorities by 'one of the more responsible individuals' at the school, who had heard drug rumours 'through the grapevine.'
