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

Queen of pot jailed (aka: Alison Durbin)

FORMER Queen of pop Alison Durbin [Giles] has been jailed for one year for drug offences. The sentence follows her guilty plea to growing and selling cannabis. Durbin, 57, who once admitted she was addicted to heroin, was sentenced in the County Court today. She was sentenced to serve 24 months in jail, with half suspended.
The court heard that since the early 1980s, Giles had been suffering depression.
No one deserves to be in jail for 5 cannabis plants. The injustice is the absurd drug laws that leads to this anachronism of modern times. Where in heavens name was the 'victim' here. Absent a complainant this was an adult consensual activity undeserving of both this trite media 'expose' or the massive waste of police, justice, and corrections resources. The real rort is being rendered on taxpayers. Will Alison's incarceration make an IOTA of difference to cannabis prevalence, price or to drug related crime... if the answer is no then the conclusion is obvious. The law and all who unquestioningly serve it are corrupt. They, and their political minions are no different to those who padlocked the carriages to Auschwitz.
