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

Aussie faces 10 years jail

Looks like we have another Schapelle Corby injustice 'media' trial ahead. The prohibitors got good value from the last one, it is so valued because it keeps the corruption premium high! /Blair

An Australian woman arrested with a small amount of marijuana on the Indonesian island of Lombok faces court on Monday, with the possibility of a 10-year jail sentence.

Local resident Barbara Kathleen Higgs, 43, was arrested in February, allegedly with 50 grams of cannabis and two small bags of seeds, at the resort beach of Sengiggi, where she part-owns a hotel named the Bulan Baru, or New Moon.

Higgs, originally from Pinjarra in Western Australia, is being held at a women's jail in the Lombok capital Mataram.

Her arrest followed a nationwide drug crackdown in Indonesia ordered by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Lombok police said Higgs, who has lived with her New Zealand husband in Lombok for five years, admitted buying the drug from a friend in Senggigi for 500,000 rupiah (*$A73).
