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 Consensual Adult Choices.

When local Police crowing over a small time cannabis and cocaine 'dealer' declared they were showing 'criminals that they will not benefit from crime' and 'hopefully deter others' the evidence suggests otherwise.

Police are providing a protection racket enabling the drug to be an attractive merchandising proposition and having taken one otherwise law abiding 'criminal' out of circulation thus created another job opportunity.

The UK Home Office do this without ever having to account for the unintended consequences of prohibiting cognitive liberty surrounding responsible and consensual adult choices that on evidence appear safer than alcohol.

The politicaly expedient theft of this mans assetts is thus double jeapordy committed under false pretenses by Police who are honour bound not to lie or do harm.
Drug dealer stripped of £551,000
A jailed drug dealer from Bristol has been stripped of more than half a million pounds of assets - including his house, yacht and three flats.
A legally regulated recreational psychoactives model would not produce such adverse outcomes. The public would do well to consider New Zealand's Restricted Substances Regulations, a UN compliant 'Class D' extention to its drug control Act.

Given royal assent in late 2008, it makes provision for NZ's Ministry of Health oversight of manufacture, growing, storage, transport, sale, age of consent, labeling, advertising etc. of drugs of low health contingency.

Former UK drug advisor Professor David Nutt described these rules as "Beautiful"
