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

Reintegration, not DisCRIMination, the Core Issue.

7. Treatment has been a major feature of the past few years. There has been a significant expansion, a fall in waiting times and the quality has improved in many areas. But it is services and support such as housing, training and employment that make a vital difference. These are so fundamental they should not be called wraparound services, but core services. People should not be excluded from housing, education or employment because they have had problems with drugs. This means that we need to start dealing with the stigma and discrimination people who managed or are trying to sort out their substance use face . Which is why DrugScope is asking the Government to learn lessons from the Mental Health and Learning Disability fields about reintegration.

So what's with the lock them up 'Anderton' protocol currently in fashion? /Blair
