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

On Methylone

This is all about methylone - Perhaps if it was described as a sister molecule to the active feel good indole in Khat [another 'cultural' herbal], it might have even been seen to be an improvement over the BZP sold openly at corner stores. We wont know now. Methylone is an empathogen, like MDMA. It is neither a upper, or downer... Methylone is guilty of making people like each other more.

Sale of ease causes outrage  [ NewsTalkZB ]

EASE trial terminated after conflicting advice

We can buy codeine over the counter, from any chemist.  We can give Ritalin to our  kids and even allow state authorised importation of and non-academic empathogenic research to be conducted 

But WE have a problem with adult use of cannabis?

Where is the promised all-drug policy development?  Just where is the National Drug Policy Review?
Where is the consumer representation on the Expert Advisory Committee (EACD)?

Somebody is jailing med pot users to send a public health message. .
Whereas "party pills" rapid rise in exposure AND popularity is a byproduct of prohibition's market distortions.

Whaaaa!

    Ecstasy for grownups | Apr 10, 2006 http://www.publicaddress.net/default,3066.sm

    The sudden suspension of the sale of Ease by Stargate International isn't news in the same sense that, say, yesterday's ripsnorting lead in the Herald on Sunday is news, but it is worth discussing.

    The suspension of Stargate's "clinical trial" of its ecstasy substitute took place after Great Southern Television commissioned ESR to analyse the tablets for its forthcoming TV2 show, Truth Files. The analysis determined that they contained, well, exactly what Stargate said they did.

    Alexander Shulgin (his wife, Ann is a Kiwi) has some better analysis on the howto's and wherefore's of Methylone chemistry and experience.
