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

FADE AntiDrug Quackery Exposed

Linguistic analyis of websites designed to expose medical quackery rates MildGreens.Blogspot up there with the British Medical Journal [BMJ]. However a test of the anti-drug foundation FADE site finds some revealing insight....

This web site is heavily laden with loosely defined terms and possibly pseudoscientific language. It is heavily using scientific jargon and may be doing this to bamboozle. However, it shows some possibility of critical thinking - but proceed with care. It also looks like this site is trying to sell stuff. Buyer Beware!
Check out the Quackometer yourself... or test your favorite pseudoscience site!
