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

Dunne and Media, Naive in the Extreme.

An arrangement of psychoactive drugs

So the media pretends to have some mandate over the argument reiterating and rehashing endless stories of woe as if repeating them over and over makes recreational psychoactive drug use more dangerous.

What's dangerous is, naivety. Of users (and moralisers) for not asking, nay demanding these substances be governed under existing legislation 

Dunne is pretending he is the drug master, having the 'killer blow' yet if all these stories of woe are sheeted home they lie at the feet of Dunne himself for failing to place these emerging drug threats under Jim Anderton's world class drug regulations adopted into law the very day John Key became right and honorable.

So media, tell that story....    Ask Peter Dunne how does his drug amendments comply with the National Drug Policy of 1998, the one that developed from 'best practice' and commended an ALL DRUG approach rather than his (Dunne's) drug by drug approach.

Peter Dunne is advocating a wolf in sheep's clothing. Clearly contentious, drug policy is a debate ill-served by media pretending it holds the cards. It stops it asking the right questions.

Why abandon regulations that no one in FIVE years has been able to find fault with?
