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

Drugs, our community, your say - the [UK] consultation con

"Drugs, the consultation con" had its parallel in New Zealand when the Ministry of Health revisited the "national drug policy" for its ten year review. It was described by one addiction specialist attending, and member of our Expert Advisory Commitee on Drugs (EACD) as an "embarrasment to the Ministry".

It was conducted as if there was no views in dissent with the policy base despite it diverging from the policy development documents that precedded its application (now) 12 years ago.

It was a case of evidence base fits the politics… now where have I heard that recently?
