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

New Scientist: Cannabis Kamatua Needed.

Cannabis Kamatua Needed

The endless charade maintaining cannabis prohibition on a global scale is being challenged in New Zealand as it reviews its 'all drug policy' through the statutory empowered Law Commission. New Zealand has already given royal assent and passed into law the regulatory model for legal sale, storage, cultivation and manufacture, labeling, place of sale, age of consent and research oversight (Oct 6th, 2008). The UN consultation phase pre-Vienna avoided any recognition either in local or international media of this world first initiative yet cannabis is used in NZ at a rate higher than Jamaica, with clear evidence of extremely damaging consequences to some individuals, the deviancy amplification principally caused by covert Policing. There is scope for New Zealand to lead the world in reform options if it takes the policy analytic approach. The world needs a new Holland!
