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

Few Benefits of Prohibition - Supreme Court Justice

The benefits of prohibition are few. Imprisonment rarely has the therapeutic effect sometimes claimed by naive defenders of the status quo and more often leads to young people being brutalised or even sexually abused.

..... few parents whose children had fallen into bad company and were using drugs would think that the solution lay in having them spend 24 hours a day with drug dealers and other criminals, even in the most enlightened prison.

-  Dr Ken Crispin, the recently retired Supreme Court Justice of the Australian Capital Territory.
