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

Peer-reviewed 'Daily Mail' on cannabis

What we've recently learned about cannabis

Listed here the latest scientific facts about cannabis. Most of the information is taken from that well respected peer-reviewed scientific journal, The Daily Mail*, whom I would like to thank for their valuable contribution to rational debate and responsible, well balanced reporting.
