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

A Frank Probationer

WAR ON DRUGS IS INEFFECTIVE

I commend Windsor County State's Attorney Robert Sand for having the intellectual integrity and political courage to point out the self-defeating nature of our approach to drugs ( Herald, Nov. 30 ).

I was a probation officer for 25 years, most of which was in the federal system here in Vermont, before retiring in 1997. My career coincided with the ramp-up of the "War on Drugs," and I had the opportunity to observe its ineffectiveness first-hand.

[ Simply a stunning revelation by a courageous public guardian borne of the frustration and experience deep within institutionalised 'corrections'. Here is the witnessing of endless systemic failure to achieve an outcome, I urge readers to send a note to the publication mentioned in this URL]
