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

Cannabis links in Stanlake case

Cannabis links in Stanlake case
24 January 2007

Former wife of murdered man tells court how their relationship deteriorated following his cannabis conviction.

(could any of this have anything to do with the prohibition of cannabis? There seems to be no evidence thus far of any health consequences, so what ever could the 'link' have been then? This case is going to prove to be very interesting. /Blair)

More evidence of Tony Stanlake's alleged involvement in cannabis cultivation has emerged on the second day of depositions in the Wellington District Court.

Twenty-two-year-old Lower Hutt man Daniel Moore is charged with Mr Stanlake's murder.

The crown alleges that on July 6 last year, he killed Mr Stanlake, then severed his hands and dumped his body in the sea off Wellington's south coast.

Today the court has heard from a woman who was still married to, but legally separated from Mr Stanlake at the time of his death. She said they married in 1988, but their relationship started to deteriorate after his conviction for cannabis cultivation in 2001.

She says he pleaded guilty to the charge, saying it was for personal, medicinal use, and was fined $10,000. She said he paid the fine from his superannuation from the Fire Service.

The couple separated soon after because, she said, she discovered he had told her a series of lies, including that he was travelling daily to a job in Porirua, when he was allegedly tending a cannabis crop there.

She says she visited his Karori home in 2004, but did not go inside because she detected a strong smell of cannabis.
(I wonder if it will ever be acknowledged, even by deposition and trial witness's or Police that what they saw was an addiction to the easy money, and the motive 'just another historical case of the psychosis of acute greed', or might we see an astute health professional suggest 'clear signs of madness' fostered by prohibitions criminogenic qualities. / Blair)
