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

Letter to the Editor.- WBOY, West Virginia

Dear Kimberly,
Please forward to whom it may concern for publication consideration.

Editorial Executive
WBOY
Clarksburg,
West Virginia, USA.

Dear Sir/Madam.

Governor Manchin puts $1M into subsidizing drug dealer profits.

Economic theory, evidence and a historical president now over a 100 years old shows the 'do good' money being thrown at drug enforcement is worse than just a hollow gesture. It counter-productively creates the problem it was intended to solve. That is the irony of public office in a prohibition world; be seen to throw enough symbolic money at an 'unaccountable' problem while creating the mess one purports to be against, sell the story to a deluded public and re-election is assured. Note well; it is public money being invested in the politics of failure, not Governor Manchin's. The dividend is an illusion.
There will come a day, and every day passes it gets closer that this kind of institutionalized malfeasance will be answerable and reconciliation will be sought.

/Blair Anderson, New Zealand
