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

Cannabis deemed SAFE by minor parties!

Absent from the sub-leaders debate - any cognition of law&order/health/civil society debate surrounding unresolved cannabis legislation.

How come it was so crucial to Dunne and Anderton 2002, 2005? (that it lead to it being  crucial for governance agreement, yet neither are currently polling 1/2 a percent support, not even between them)

How implausable is 'restorative justice' when the law grossly afflicts Maori? How is this "treaty" principled?
(When NZ1 'maori caucus' assembled at the beginning of MMP it supported reform of the cannabis law.)

The Green Party hasnt even mentioned it depite having a bill before the house. (medpot)

ACT's Rodney Hide is on record in many public meetings as a cannabis legaliser.

There is an R18 debate on every Electoral Voting form.  (see ALCP.ORG.NZ  logo), one party, the Republicans have been for constitutional reform and DRUG LAW reform since 1968.  Everyone is looking to what minor partys will consider 'bottom line' after the election yet no one dares go where we have just come from?

Has cannabis suddenly become more benign?
Have journalists no integrity...
