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

Aussie's call for internet drug fight

POLITICIANS want police and the Australian Crime Commission to have extra powers to scour the internet and hunt the manufacturers and suppliers of synthetic drugs such as ice and ecstasy.

Authorities should be allowed to spy in web chatrooms and track down "cookbooks" that guide criminals and their technicians in the manufacture of the drugs, a parliamentary committee report said yesterday.

Other types of investigations, such as into tax evasion or money-laundering, should be encouraged in a bid to catch those businesses that operate with legitimate operations.

The joint standing committee on the Australian Crime Commission, which investigated amphetamines and other synthetic drugs warned that organised crime was increasing its involvement in the insidious trade and a bolstered and co-ordinated national response was needed.

Investigators needed extra money from commonwealth, state and territory governments to specifically tackle law enforcement as well as education and research, the report says.

Sound familair?

The use of ice was escalating, with it becoming the drug of choice among young people who did not believe it carried the social stigma of heroin.

Australia recently released a report saying how effective it was in scaring young people away from 'dirty' cannabis, even admitting the 'fallacy' of the fears that created. And i said, no wonder they have a meth problem! Same shite rules, same shite outcome.

NZ is largely absent the heroin, being as we are off the drug trade routes, we don't get the market spillage. Our heroin is largely homebake, converted from morphine sulphate, ex-legal prescription sources. We were meth potentiated!.
