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

OPED: Fortress America - 2006

There is no simple answer to this complex and disagreeable social problem which has been developing for nearly a century other than to look to another social experiment that had similar negative results - the Prohibition Act of 1929. Recognizing its failure, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition ( LEAP ) formed in 2002. This international education organization comprised of former law enforcement, corrections and judicial officers with long experience working the front lines of the so-called "War on Drugs" advocates the legalization of drugs combined with a comprehensive system of regulation such as is now done with alcoholic beverages.

"A perfect solution? Certainly not, but at least a mechanism that can be adjusted and refined to reduce the prohibitive costs and social damage that is now a consequence of our misguided efforts to 'just make drugs go away.'"

Retired Chief of Police Bob Owens
