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

British Top Research Scientist says Legalize.


Associate Minister of Health, Hon Peter Dunne.
Parliament Buildings,
Wellington.
Dear Sir,
Wikipedia:Contact us/Photo submissionIn the light of recent comments in the house re Law Commission recommendations and the current governments response I observed that you have said you and the Ministry of Health have an evidenced based policy formulation. How can you reconcile this stated position against an increasing number of authoritative and eminent scientists and policy stakeholders who continue to critique prohibition practices that you continue to declare as either successful or will be shortly if we try hard enough.
I support my request with the following discussion that appeared in the British newspaper The Guardian  for your Ministry to comment on. 
Cannabis should be licensed and sold in shops, expert say.
Leading cannabis researcher calls for legalisation with controls similar to alcohol and tobacco.
Cannabis for recreational use should be available in shops under similar restrictions to those used to control the sale of alcohol and tobacco, according to Britain's leading expert on the drug.   see http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2010/sep/14/cannabis-licence-legalisation-pertwee
