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

On Scott Watson?

Over time, and especially since the conviction of Scott Watson, the Marlborough Sounds case has revealed some grave flaws and omissions.

Police provided composite images of the moored boats that appeared to exclude yachts that looked unlike Scott's seemed on the face of it, egregious. No wonder there are public doubts.

However there was a factor that seems to have been overlooked by a public (and quite possibly Police) duped into thinking this was probably about sex.

Lets start with a few premises. Eighty percent of young Kiwi's have experienced cannabis by 21 yrs. Marlborough is a key cannabis cultivation area. Marlborough's regular rain, sunshine and 'easy access' by boat from other NZ ports makes it a likely source of secure and large quantity 'early to market' cannabis, thus more valuable. That the supply chain network has a high [Net Present] future value, the contingent risks for middlemen and at these volumes certainly would lead to significant jail time, probable asset forfeiture and if 'the operation' is financed from black market sources carries high penalty for failure to deliver. Did 'narc culture', where truth is compromised by the very rules made 'to protect us' cost 2 lives and more?

Comment as seen on NZHerald website online.... "The Sounds murders - did Scott Watson do it?"
