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

Blanket Prohibitions: Inherently Evil?

Prohibition (even if in name only) is responsible for hurting people. Continued support of which gives licence and succour to those who practice the hurting of people. There is no medical practitioner who supports 'doing harm' where it can be avoided. Those who shirk 'moral culpability' for such systemic failure are deeply deluded verging on insane.

A lithograph by Nathaniel Currier supporting t...Image via WikipediaThe belief that the illegal' status improves things... is neither conservative nor precautionary.

It is downright dangerous.

There is nothing in the pharmacology of cannabis that is inherently evil (a prerequisite for state sanction of depriving one of freedom) or criminogenic.

It is naivety that maintains the status quo.

It is insufficient to just 'believe, hope, or follow' the existing paradigm that hurts others 'in your name' because your too busy, uneducated, or downright vindictively prejudiced and choose to remain 'of a mind' that what you believe is best practice.

It is especially duplicitous to call for or maintain prohibition having 'used' the vice you [now] object too without understanding that you did this both despite prohibition (it didn't work for you, why would you believe it should for others) and also that any harms you thus accrued occurred under prohibitions watch yet you suffered no criminal sanction you [now] wish on others.
