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

EFSDP: Police program criticized

"... to understand their perspective and concerns".

Good call FrankD, I agree however, I have long found it difficult to give good grace to bigotry, racism, ageism, sexism and othering for the grotesque and perverse inequities that are a result of UN sanctioned conventions.

Ignorance of the conventions' outcomes are no excuse, no matter how well intentioned.

I don't have a problem with prohibition; the price we pay in social capital 'is what is prohibitive.', I say prohibit that which is just plain unacceptable. It is the 'collaborative effect' of prohibitors perspectives and concerns that 'are the problem' . It can only ever be a confrontational clash of doctrine founded on 'weakness' of the will.

Hence the moral dilemma.

In order to save them from themselves, the first thing a prohibitor does, is turn that person [and everyone they associate with] into a victim.

What is moral? narco-absolutism at a price or best practice harm minimisation.
It is helpful in this case to alter the test to "What is more moral?"
And then the answer becomes obvious.

[If prohibitors have a more effective approach, they better get better at PR.]

I was impressed by how many intelligent comments there
were from the pro regulation/legalization side.

I also think it's valuable to learn more effective
approaches by studying the prohibitionist comments to
understand their perspective and concerns.
