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

In the years preceding its installation, critics denounced the filigreed steelwork as "an affront" and a "vulgarity". The Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party claimed it resembled a giant dope reefer.
Clearly the PRESS havent chatted with its more experienced media staff who might have set them straight as to the familar cultural expression and act of political dissent the 'enjoying of a cone' is.
The use of cannabis, and particularly of large pipes called "chalices", is an integral part of what Rastafari call Reasoning sessions. They see cannabis as having the capacity to allow the user to penetrate the truth of how things are much more clearly, as if the wool had been pulled from one's eyes. /Blair )


see the 'electoral' origins of the story...
