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

$8Billion Dollars of American Bullshite

The argument [American Pot Smokers Providing Over $8 Billion of Revenue to Drug Cartels] that cannabis and other drug violence and mayhem in Mexico and other jurisdictions is caused by demand side consumption by Americans is utterly implausible. It is prohibition itself that causes the very problems it sets out to solve. It is "spin doctoring" by a flawed and capricious 'moral' enforcement regime determined maintain the current policy and damn the costs and consequences mentality. The USA has been fostering violence and death via UN conventions for far too long. The 'estimated revenue' graphs identify why it is so important to address our collective selves to the injustice of global cannabis prohibition urgently.
