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

Punishment Without Jail

"We need to make sure there are adequate services available for addicts and for  those things which are often driving people into criminal activity in the first  place, " Major Roberts said.

The Rethinking Crime and Punishment campaign  would provide factual material to balance the emotions stirred up by individual  violent crimes, he said.

Other reference board members include Auckland  University law professor Warren Brookbanks, South Auckland Christian social  worker Sam Chapman, Maxim Institute director Greg Fleming, former prison manager  Celia Lashlie, former Ombudsman Mel Smith, Youth Court Judge Stan Thorburn and  church leaders.
