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

Seattle/Washington to "Legalise It".

Testing Washington State drivers for the presence or absence of inhaled or ingested cannabis is utterly illogical as the residue of cannabis consumption, the metabolites, have no correlation to impairment.

Metabolites are temporarily stored in fatty tissue and released slowly (one of the reasons cannabis is not addictive). Metabolites are what is left over after the psychoactive effect has occurred. It is, as it were, blaming the smoke for causing the fire.

It is, in the words of retired head of Scotland Yard, Det Chief Super Eddie Ellison (LEAP.CC) "the logical equivalent of licking someones exhaust pipe to see if they had been speeding yesterday".
