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

MJ Arrests soaring amid concerted police effort

Hmmmm - thinking outloud!

The increases in 'cannabis arrest' numbers in America are surely a 'by-catch' of increased technology and surveillance [silent policemen] and the unintended consequence of incidental interdiction of otherwise lawabiding seekers of cognitive liberty compelled by circumstance to be in oppositional defiance (of the law, politics of state and mediocrity).

I recently calculated from New York States cannabis annual consumption at anyone time there is about 10,000 citizens not just in illicit possession of at least 1 kg of cannabis, but are responsible for transporting it 'on their person in public, via public transport, or responsible for the vehicle' and thus become are at elevated risk of being subject to random interdiction and/or accidental expose.

Elevated risk of a deviant response becomes self fulfilling in the data..

Of course the amount of cannabis interdicted at San Francisco from Farid was a mere .0001 gm (1 millionth of the above amount), and he become 'one' such statistic. This makes the numbers quoted below farcical if it wasn't palpably anti humanitarian, sexist, racist and ageist in its application..

Fear and paranoia can, under exceptional circumstances, is a harm reducing safety and survival mechanism.

"You tell me I'm the crazy one Officer?, your here to save me from myself but by your Orwelian hand you intend to turn me into a victim. - Fuck off! "
