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

New England Journal of Medicine on federal foolishness

Abrams described a historically significant episode that revealed how the medical establishment -not just the [US] government- has upheld prohibition.
In 1997 after the law was changed in California, Jerome Kassirer, who was Editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, wrote an editorial on medical marijuana called 'federal foolishness,' saying 'We know this drug works, everybody has their anecdotal experience of people who have benefited from it, get over it, reschedule it, make it schedule 2.'
Unfortunately, ... he very shortly thereafter became no longer the editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine.
