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

Seven in 10 young crooks use cannabis daily | the Daily Mail

More than seven out of 10 teenage criminals have smoked cannabis every day for at least 12 months, a government report has revealed.

The study shows for the first time the shocking link between use of the drug and a youngster's chances of ending up behind bars."
Forgive me, but there is some very long bows being drawn here. There are various estimates arround the 70% of all young folk having smoked cannabis and many of those will do it daily for periods of time. Prohibition means its not safe to have around. Consumption is compulsory.

A weird prohibitors "harm reduction' encourages 'smoke the evidence' quick!!

The criminogenic correlation with kids 'in trouble' is a product of prohibition. Additionaly the presence of cannabis in the youth community, coupled to Cannabis being a crime in and of itself perverts the relationship.
Putting these kids in moral boot camp invites dissent and disprespect for rule of law.

What is required is restorative justice, not brutal intolerance.
