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

Experts pretend black cannabis trade harmless....

University of Auckland
"The economic characteristics of the cannabis black market suggest it may only generate a low to moderate social harm. The relatively low black market price of cannabis, and the personalised nature of transactions, mean the retail market generates relatively little violence or public nuisance."


(May 2001, para 22, A Submission to the Health Select Committee Inquiry into the Public Health Effects and Legal Status of Cannabis. Alcohol & Public Health Research Unit Runanga, Wananga, Hauora me te Paekaka Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, University of Auckland.)


Insert image of 14 year old South Auckland boy, hammered to death in front of his whanau for a cannabis tinnie!


"Family members have told how John, his mother and two of his friends were at home in Justamere Place, Weymouth, when two masked men burst in through the back door. The friends were celebrating a birthday.
John's mother ordered the gatecrashers to leave, but they later returned and attacked John outside. The mother of a boy who saw the bashing said one of the attackers was carrying a hammer and the other a gun. John died that night of bluntforce trauma to the back of his head." - http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10528811
