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

Democracy in Socratic Disrepute?

House of Commons of the United KingdomImage via Wikipedia
During his 10 years on the advisory council he said he found talking with politicians very difficult and that fewer people were now voting in elections because the House of Commons is nothing more than a “pantomime”. He said: “I never realised how unintellectual politicians are.” - Professor Nutt, presentation to Students for Sensible Drug Policy at Leeds University, Nov. 2009.

Over the past ten or so years, the MildGreens have been consistent in making the call that no other social contruct so readily subject to 'change' depleted good governance. It should not be surprising that the evidence for such conclusions should continue to manifest in the international arena. One cannot study post war politics without having a full understanding of how drug policy has (mis)shaped our world. /Blair
