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

No Accounting the Thin Blue Line

RazorDanger to Police and Public...

Police Drug Budgets are never accounted for. No performance criteria are met thus the policy is never tested against goals.

Police are contracted to deliver road safety in performance tested half hour increments.
In drug policy they are contracted to do nothing, achieve even less and do so with a bottomless pit (they are deficit financed) to draw upon.
It is bloody poor management. And the Police Minister knows it. As does the Minister of Justice. And the Minister of Health.
Such 'management' wouldn't pass muster in a UK police academy, why should we be asked to stump up millions in tax dollars without any policy impact statement ever being prepared, goals determined and shortfalls accounted. For the moment they do do that, there will be legislative implications... and that is both politically untenable and will see the end of the drug war job creation scheme for bullies.... 'patched gang members' of the thin blue line.

Remember... the BEER and HOTEL t-shirts worn by cops (and only cops) that featured in the racist Television show on drugs in Northland a few years ago "Dope: Behind the Smoke".

Some will recall the Police declaring why they had to use helicopters to spray cannabis. The danger to them from razor blades used to protect the illegal drugs... while showing a blue BIC safety razor and some limp leaves 'as if' it presented a threat to people innocently walking through the bush, and a threat to the safety of officers.  The televised 'testilying' so these pricks (read: social pariahs, no apology offered) promoting alcohol and where it is sold can bust cannabis plants 'to look good' looks all the more stupid.

No doubt they will be knocking at my door soon enough.....
