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

And the Injustice Is?

 “If sports bodies are concerned about their image, the focus should be on alcohol, not cannabis,” said Mr Saxby. “Half of all serious violent offences and one third of all offences in New Zealand are committed by offenders who have been drinking; while alcohol is associated with almost fifty percent of all reported incidents of sexual violence.”


The injustice of catching one person per NFL year for pot when drawn from 16% of all NZ’s surveyed demograph… arround one in 6 players, some say more, it’s just how it is. The worst injustice is labeling alcohol more legal than cannabis thus promoting and protecting sports subsidy, from Harringtons to Sparc. And ALAC says nothing, they according to them at least, are not funded too.

It will be more interesting to the players than to the associations (where even not so angels fear to tread) of that I have no doubt. DrugFree Sport still thinks they can turn your addiction arround as if it is just some kind of career move.

Couldnt be to Touch Rugby as any reading of their profile will tell you. Touch Rugby would all but dissapear under a testing regime. But no one will go there, it’s the way it is.

It is not an endless string of fashionable mollochs, it is just lurching incompetancy at sending any kind of meaningful signal while the double standards reign supreme.

Cannabis players can cope with sport better than drunks.

It is anti-aggressogenic character makes it a safer alternative for enjoyable recreation. We have a class for recreational drug use, ministry of health approved. Keep problematic drug use to when drug use is problematic. Problem Solved.

I saw the Waiheki Four yesterday, before a Judge for collectively possessing a joint and a bong and no one will admit to whose it is, kinda cases.  On a beach table. On New Years Eve. Laughable. The Judge was not too impressed with the Police's account of things, so, it procedes to defended hearing. Oh dear! Is this for real? The court should not deal with such trivia.

The injustice is this is done in our name.
