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

Shapelle Corby on LawFuel

This case exemplifies all that is wrong with the international drug covenants and conventions to which New Zealand is a signatory. 

Recent hangings in South East Asia, firing squads in China, and most recently two Kiwi's arrested (and presumed guilty) for 3.5oz of cannabis between them in India, (the home of Ganja, a plant named as sacred along with the river Ganges) all happen because we as a nation collectively give licence to kill and incarcerate cruelly and inhumanely. 

Where is the legal profession on drug policy?

Or is the substantial legal aid grift and perpetual social mayhem an incentive for a silence closely resembling stupidity? NZ's own National Drug Intelligence Bureau chief along with the BERL Drug Harm report (though much criticised) states that the revenue 'churn' through the legal system is a DRUG HARM.

The LEGAL profession are beneficiaries of the unintended consequences. So when are you collectively going to talk about that?

To the Law Commission? Yeah Right!

Curiously, in Christchurch's sister city Seattle, it was the law profession that lead drug policy law reform. see King County Bar Association - http://www.kcba.org/druglaw/
"The principal objectives of this effort are: reductions in crime and public disorder; improvement of the public health; better protection of children; and wiser use of scarce public resources."
