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

City Drug Raids Solve Diddly

Cuckoo clockImage via WikipediaThe Police are in cuckoo land if they believe this will make any difference to prevalence of pot.

 Despite the evidence from the Christchurch Health and Development Study of 1000 of our kids that shows clearly how dangerous this drug must be and nothing happened (4:5 having broken the law more than five times) the delusional policy still exists.

Evidence shows the bulk of trade in cannabis is innocuous recompense for risk taken amongst friends and trusted acquaintances. Duplicitous Police continue to pretend this is a serious problem that takes them 'years' to accumulate limited intelligence to justify the random raiding of enough houses to find something to justify the lunacy of using our taxes to keep them in a job that achieves nothing.

Perhaps if Police had prioritised its resource allocation (as our Sister City Seattle has done, treating Pot as lower priority than a parking ticket) they would have the 'intelligence' to investigate the burglary where the purported 'stolen' property had come from.

Don't expect media to 'link' the issue.. the Press's newsroom clowns are too stupid to give balance the story - pretending that civil society has nothing to say or add. This, despite NZ adopting Helen Clark's R18 'partial prohibition' of psychoactive recreational drug USE, the innovative and UN compliant 'Restricted Substances Regulations'

The "law is an ass" to quote then Min of Health, Hon. Annette King commenting post two select committee inquiries on cannabis.

Helen's Mom and Dad,
greatful she wasnt busted!

So to are media for NEVER EVER reporting the 2008 "Order in Council' for Rt. Hon. Helen Clark's "partial prohibition" and what it means. (see: legislation.govt.nz).

It's enough to drive ya to drink!
