Mere conjecture? Oh no... the Science supports who? Those on the side of reform it appears.
There is no merit in the Police case against Quinlan; (a) because the Police and the courts have allowed the 'business' of Switched On Gardener to trade for ten years without as much as a warning, and (b) because the courts have allowed the business to continue to trade despite the Police's covert and overt activities to brand it as 'criminal'.

"Police Deputy Commissioner Rob Pope claims that the raids have broken 'the cornerstone of the illicit cannabis cultivation industry'. He is lying, and he knows it. No government has ever been able to halt supply of any illicit substance. These raids may temporarily push up the price of an ounce of green, but with many thousands of hard-working New Zealanders involved in the cannabis industry, supply will soon rebound."
"There is no sense in legislation which criminalises half the country. Two thirds of young people, and half of all adults under the age of 50, have used cannabis. Marijuana is mainstream. Criminalisation of something so mundane makes an ass of the law, and criminals of otherwise law-abiding people." - 28 April 2010, Press Release: Libertarianz Party, "Operation Lime - An Attack on Freedom"
