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

UK, drug expendature "waste of money".

.. an independent group set up to examine the state of the nation's drug trade.

The report, published yesterday, paints a grim picture..

..suggesting that the billions of pounds spent on attempts to reduce the availability of drugs on the streets have been in vain.

It said there was "remarkably little evidence" that action by customs officials, police and the Serious Organised Crime Agency has had any significant effect in disrupting illegal drug markets.

The report argued that the UK should try a radically different approach to tackling the misery brought about by drug-dealing and the crime and social disorder associated with it.

Others advocate taking the ultimate step – legalisation.
