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

DEA targets larger California medpot providers

The Californian DEA'BACLE is the product of poor public policy formulation and has its metaphor in establishment of 'herbal shops', so evident in Christchurch NZ.
The solution to medicinal cannabis is not to be found in 'robust medicinal cannabis protocols', rather the dissociation of quasi prohibition models from the culture of cannabis per se.

(see also "INITIATIVE TO LEGALIZE ALL PLANTS AND TO RELEASE AND PURGE RECORDS OF ALL DRUG PROHIBITION PRISONERS". -
An initiative of the Cal. Bar Assn)

The grow your own model, like tomatoes (or beer/wine/spirits) is the only game in town. Anomalies such as we are reading about of entrepreneurs prepared to operate at the fringes of the law' are incentivised by the Californian/USA prohibition model.

NO ONE seriously believes that the medical model in Cali. is strictly medicinal. That is a public fraud and does a disservice to reform to pretend otherwise. The right to possess is a barren right without the possessor having the right to grow, store, process and exchange in accordance with civil normative constructs. School kids don't hang round vineyards, breweries or distilleries but they could make any amount of the latter themselves. Odd how legal regulation works eh?
DEA targets larger marijuana providers
LA Times California Local News

The federal agency sees big profits for medical dispensaries as a sign of illegal high-stakes drug dealing. Advocates say the raids are unfair. / By Rone Tempest, Times Staff Writer - January 1, 2007

Washington Times Jan 1 2007
Larger California dispensaries of medical marijuana claim they are being unfairly targeted by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency.
Among them is Shon Squier, 34, of Hayward, Calif., whose major storefront operation was shut down last month by the DEA, which also froze bank accounts containing $1.5 million and confiscated several expensive cars, motorcycles and $200,000 in cash, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.
