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

Emirate of DubaiImage via Wikipedia
Authorities found a speck of cannabis weighing 0.003grams stuck to the bottom of his shoe which was not readily visible to the naked eye.  
Only in Dubai?  





"Customs authorities are using highly sensitive new equipment to conduct extremely thorough searches on travellers and if they find any amount - no matter how minute - it will be enough to attract a mandatory four-year prison sentence."


"We even have reports of the imprisonment of a Swiss man for 'possession' of three poppy seeds on his clothing after he ate a bread roll at Heathrow.



New Zealand is a signatory to the Single Convention that gives licence to this 'human rights abuse'.
