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

Marc Alexander might be getting it?

"As a civil society we must have a safety net. But a real safety net works to heal and empower not disable and ensnare. It must be focused on the restoration of a person to being independent, self-reliant. Or at least as much as is possible. The trick is to find the balance that considers the best interests of the individual and the taxpayer who pays for it. That's where true compassion really lies." / former United Future MP. Marc Alexander (Marc my Words)
The logical jump from welfarism to addiction and how civil society treats those with a 'chemical imbalance' hasn't quite been made, but his head is in the right place.
Now, if only we can overcome the barriers to that conversation, 'white privilege'.
