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

Drug Convention Analysis Misses Kiwi Solution

The TI report  "The UN drug control conventions, The Limits of Latitude" (By Dave Bewley-Taylor and Martin Jelsma) content, while excellent,  stands in marked contrast to the 'art of the politically possible' constrained and shallow analysis of our constitutional, ethical, moral and public health arrangements delivered by the Law Commission inquiry into drug use. The contestability of the Conventions gets little fellowship from the Drug Foundation who cow tow to treatment, drug courts and the a$$oc health minister of the day.

The only thing scarier to officials than talking about drug use, is talking to a drug user.

No decision about us without us....  anything else is unconstitutional. unethical, and immoral and, thus falls way short of the policy analytic standard required to be called 'best practice'..On the steps of the union 2 - Re:Vision Drug P...On the steps of the union 2 - Re:Vision Drug Policy Network (Photo credit: Re:Vision Drugs)
The pandering to prohibition 'drug court' seminar held this month by the Auckland Law Society is one such case.
It is a disgrace this passed muster as a contribution to the debate. Beguiling proof the UN Conventions maybe best described as a treaty with the devil.
