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

Chok(ing) in anti-dope haze

There is inspiration in reviewing 'old stuff', [at least] periodically, the inventory of reform literature is ever expanding within which there are the gems and insights. 
I know, for some this represents a legacy of  disappointingly slow progress, while I celebrate that it  logs another of those days that bring us closer to the desired  'end game state'. This one, written 7 years ago, refers to one of the more progressive inquiries on cannabis but was compromised by political expediency,  however, one can smile at this erudite challenge to educators everywhere; a real gem.
"The last time I chucked off at the marijuana law, a Northland school teacher wrote a derisive letter. How, she asked, would I like having to appear before a room full of kids who had burned their brains out with marijuana? For a day I struggled to write a polite reply and not to ask whether she was such a bore that pupils switched off at the sight of her. And why did she defend the law if she so objected to its outcome? "
