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

Deadline In Merck Vioxx Settlement (CNNMoney.com)

A key deadline in Merck & Co.'s (MRK) proposed $4.85 billion settlement of Vioxx product liability litigation comes Saturday, Mar. 8. If at least 85% of certain groups of plaintiffs - such as those who alleged Vioxx caused heart attacks - enroll in the settlement by then, Merck is expected to begin the process of making payments. Nearly 60,000 claims have been filed against Merck over Vioxx, the pain drug it pulled from the market in 2004 after a study linked it to higher risk of heart attack and stroke. The proposed settlement was announced in November. (CNNMoney.com)
