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

Legal Doesnt Equate to Laudable

Choogle on! With Uncle WeedImage by Uncleweed via Flickr

Because something is legal does not automatically make it laudable.

Increase use doesn't necessarily equate to an increase in net harm either.

Set and Setting do define harm risk (a point that prohibitors prefer to overlook). Making
cannabis [use] less stigmatized would enable quality epidemiological research.

A patient (or recreational user, practicing preventative early intervention) has a fundamental right to 'informed consent', where fully informed is fully armed and consent is 'self determination'.

I would expect a reported increase in use post ANY prohibitory regime. That should surprise no one.

But at least a little bit of pot sitting somewhere hurting no one will cease to lead to arrest and incarceration and the life long stigma of a conviction for what MOST thinking people believe to be 'of little matter'. (and courts should not deal with such trivialities)
