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

Knowledge Lowers Cost of Drug Management

The trouble with the ABC classification begins when they give A's to all the really good drugs!
Why are kids lied too about obviously 'safer' cannabis and alcohol has "free zones"?
When it has not been his/her experience his friends and peers are turning into retards we set them up for failure.
We may as well make meth compulsory.

We have to normalise the knowledge. Its our best protection.
If a young person being experiential with any drug had good information (ie enabled prophylactic health promotion) and  the set and setting was supportive, or at least neutral, rather than toxic mistrust, money and attitude, alienation and illegality affecting decisions. And do the same for alcohol.
Knowledge carries in every way a lower cost alternative to prohibitory practices. No matter which drug.

And that means teaching cannabis in context. Across the curriculum. One cannot study post WW2 politics without doing so, why should one shy away from best practice societal norms. Ignore history - we repeat it.
