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

P-lab cleanups (Victor Boyd Interview, RNZ)

The necessity for P-Lab cleanups (and the societal risks associated with the chemicals) are a direct function of dysfunctional drug policy.

It all points to a raft of uncosted unintended consequences, born by otherwise innocent victims as your interview attests.

Ephedrine used to be a mild herbal extract from the ephedra plant. It hurt no one. It was a natural (and very safe) medicine. It was so efacious it was manufactured to meet demand and clinical application, as pseudo-ephidrine. It was so safe we could give it out as cold medicine.

The contemporary parallel is coca leaves, made illegal, became cocaine... then crack. Same with Opium, first Heroin, then Morphine.

Cannabis Oil, as in the [recent] Milton explosion again, same. In fact hashish and oil 'punishment' is predicated on the 'attempt to make cannabis harder to detect'.

It is more profitable and less risky to 'transport' something that is easier to hide.

We should talk sometime... (hell will be very cold before then I have no doubt.)
