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

Is cannabis use psychotogenic?

The major challenges for health educators will be in finding credible ways of communicating with young people about the significance of cannabis use that might increase the overall lifetime risk of developing schizophrenia... / Wayne Hall [School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Herston, Queensland, 4006 Australia]
Is cannabis use psychotogenic?
By: Hall, Wayne. Lancet, 1/21/2006, Vol. 367 Issue 9506, p193-195, 3p; DOI: 10.1016/S0140-6736(06)68012-4; (AN 19472189)
Pity authorities dont understand this.... the Canterbury District Health Board confirmed in writing two days ago... "As we do not hold any contracts or funding for this area we unable to respond". This conveniently allows them to ignore any input from visiting Prof Rodney Skager [emeritus professor of education psychology UCLA] or allow peer review assessment of the donated booklet by the same author, "Beyond Zero Tolerance" for inclusion into the Community and Public Health resource library.

No wonder PPTA, Trustees, etc. remain flummoxed by critical failure in drug ed.
