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

United Nations Driving Shapelle Mad

attn: Blair Norton,TVNZ Reporter,Christchurch.

Hi Blair,

United Nations Driving Shapelle Mad

Shapelle is depressed BECAUSE OF THE UNITED NATIONS Conventions on Narcotics.
The NZ Law Commission is examining NZ obligations under these covenants and treaties this year (see terms of reference)
Human Rights AND Drug Policy  is a key issue at UN Vienna meetings in July. (NZ delegation of 9 has 2 attending from Christchurch)
Shapelle is serving twenty years for the amount of cannabis smoked in Australia every 60 seconds.

Reporting on this issue is long on history (how many times do we need to hear what she did)  and short on insight on just how disproportionate the sentence.

She was lucky to escape the death penalty.

Singapore hangs people for 500gms of what Oregon State (and twelve other states =33% of USA pop) would allow as medicine.
