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

Record drug haul (West Coast helicopter recovery)

West Coast police have netted a record cannabis haul in a week-long drug recovery operation.

An Air Force-piloted Iroquois helicopter -- nicknamed the Grasshopper by locals -- has hauled away a total of nearly 8740 plants.

The haul was up 16 per cent, or around 1200 plants, on last summer largely because of the good growing conditions.

Sergeant Russell Glue, of Hokitika police, said the largest plot was in Buller, at the northern West Coast, where between 500 and 1000 plants were found.
Glue said police could not disclose the street value of the cannabis recovered.
Nationally last growing season, police recovered and destroyed more than 100,000 plants and arrested more than 700 people

Well wipty dooooo..... and this taxpayer funded grift, er, I mean initiative has made what difference ?
May be this is why the Police were too busy to attend this weeks BEYOND 2008 drug policy consultation!
