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

'Daktory' cannabis club owner jailed "Political"

Politicians and Prohibitors may call this Justice but Dakta Green is right, this is, indisputably political.

see GOOGLE NEWS items here

It should be obvious to all that there is no New Zealand Alcohol Party, or Tobacco Party of Aotearoa, nor is there likely to ever be on your next electoral ballot sheet a Party of Kronic. But there it is, every by-election, every general election, and many local body elections "ALCP". Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis PartyImage via Wikipedia

On its merits ALCP polls more than Jim Anderton's Progressives, or Dunne's United Future... It does so without access to mainstream media, televised debates or material resources.

To suggest support only comes from those who ingest, inhale or apply topically is delusional, just as it is to suggest that those who are against reform are reasoned, intelligent and able to offer argument that prohibition is an effective, efficient, just and equitable solution.

It is perverse to even hold out hope that the sanctioning and imprisonment of Dakta Green will stop ONE SINGLE PERSON from using or experimenting with cannabis.

Evidence suggests it will probably verify in the minds of young people that ALL THEIR PEERS ARE DOING IT, and contrary to the intent of the legislation enforced under the warrant of the Minister of Health, will mean these young people cant bloody wait to try it. Yet NO MEDIA WILL PUT TONY RYALL on the spot and ask him why enforce such a counter productive policy?

Where is the fourth estate on this. I suggest an AUT Media Studies paper on the subject is entirely instructive. It identifies that it is collusion "between media and police" that this perpetuated mayhem sells advertising real estate. 

There is NO INTENTION to hold a reasoned debate or report the real harms of prohibition for to do so would eliminate one of the impediments to post prohibition social dividend, politicians who continually profess they are are tough on crime while maintaining crime for the purpose of saving us from it. 

Dakta Green's 8 months inside is intended to 'chill' debate. That's POLITICAL!
