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

Heroin 'kills more people than speed'

Heroin 'kills more people than speed'

If this Australian report is true for New Zealand, [it isnt, we cook (convert morphine sulphate) from the pharmacutical markets for our high purity heroin] then why is the media apparently misrepresenting "P" dangers when "H" is so apparently the dangerous. (see also bibliographic review of NZ literature, media, research)

"'Often we forget older users of illicit drugs, yet these appear to be the group where increases in fatal overdoses are occurring,' Dr Degenhardt said.

'Clearly we need to be doing more to help this older group to reduce their risks of overdosing on the drug.'

Dr Degenhardt is calling for a response to the increasing popularity of methamphetamine.

Young recreational drug users need to be educated about the risks associated with speed."
