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

Killer T cells—also called cytotoxic T lymphoc...Image via Wikipedia
Dr. Arnold Tashkin of UCLA conducted the largest-ever study of marijuana's effect on the lungs. His team found that not only was marijuana not associated with lung cancer, but that it possibly even exerts a protective effect against it.
Nicotine masks pre-cancer from the immune system whereas cannabis does not. Alcohol masks mental health issues whereas cannabis (particularly in a beyond prohibition world) does not.

Cannabis availability is harm reduction by displacement.... Public health is augmented. Cannabis as a therapeutic is a non-issue and doesnt do justice to the argument.

Controlled availability (D'classification as per 'restricted substances regulations' ) removes identified impediments to best practice and credible health promotion. End of story.
