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

Public Health Update for Drug Industry II


Public health update

The Health Committee has begun to hear oral submissions on the Public Health Bill, with the opportunity for written submissions closing last week. The Bill seeks to update the existing health law, and in its current form will allow regulations to be made to place controls on certain activities, including "activities relating to goods and services with the potential to pose risks to public health." The Bill would extend such provisions to non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and obesity, with some fearing that it would allow regulations to be created that might limit the sale or advertising of unhealthy foods or where they can be placed within supermarkets.

The Health Committee is expected to report back to Parliament on the Bill by 10 June 2008.

Hat tip to MAXIM for warning the homegrower, the tinny houses, the head shops and mobile p-labs.
But where is Rothmans and Seagrams?

Is Burger King going to support BMI size doors, and will the 'ultra-sound profiling' security flip "and is that with salad, health warning and google advt.?"
Surely these are the technical solutions being sought here....
