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

Teen Sex Issue, Explored From Policy POV.

Teen Sex Issue, explored from policy POV.


The MildGreens wrote and published this nine years ago. It is informed by our work in drug/youth nexus.

It is more relevent now, more so as we move to more liberal drug policy and how politics and moral panics continue to confound and thus impair best practice health promotion in this age of consent group.

Former Justice Minister, Hon Phil Goff was onto something. He was shut down because we can't talk about sex and justice without confusing the issue, then in 2004 not wishing to be seen 'condoning' what teens do, and now what teens are continuing to do but in an even more perplexing, challenging, and evidentially dangerous construct, a poor public policy surrounding the drug we drink and the artificial red lines created to serve as justice messages.

R16 and all that means to contemporary teen behavior
.
Want to see dangerous and harmful teen sex. ? Keep doing what we are doing. Watch the amplification of deviancy....

National and Labour killed the debate then.... and won't open Pandora's box because it is bereft of collective intelligence and advocacy beholden to so called centrist Christian thinking.

We have to enable parents and parenting and go Dutch.

There is nothing Christian or moral in maintaining social dysfunction, especially in those demographs most at risk just because we are reluctant to go where angels fear to tread.

It is the stuff of social capital.

Feedback welcomed.
