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

Youth Drug Education Critiqued

"Talking to young people it seems clear that we do need to improve the way we deliver drug education both in and out of school."



The Children Plan says:



Schools are also in a good position to communicate the right messages and spot alcohol misuse problems early.
Alcohol education in schools must be accurate and effective . We will examine the effectiveness of current delivery arrangements for all drugs education – including alcohol – and act to strengthen them if necessary. (is this suggesting it is OK to lie about other drugs? /Blair)


If Schools are the right place it must be because we have made homes (and parents) the wrong place. Until we empower parents, and tell the truth, drug education is just another wish list.



If DARE was the answer... it was a pretty poor question.
