LTE: On the making of good law; first enable reason.
University life is about exploring the edges of reason, and this is one such case. The response by campus watch, and proctors, is the modern equivalent of book burning.
Naysayers and inparticular politicians with the ostrich syndrome have a big lesson coming. There is no political will for continued prohibition of cannabis, exemplified by a Cambell Live poll of 16000 Kiwi folk, 84% desire a seachange in our drug policy. It it isn't half about time. To continue to pretend 16% have 'the answer' is about as anal as public policy gets. It is just a shame we havent got the collective nouse in the house to make it so.
see Campbell Live poll shows people think marijuana decriminalisation is good.
So VOTE. And insist that ANY POLL includes ALL the PARTIES standing on the hustings this election.
The true measure of our collective will cannot be embraced while the ALCP [Cannabis Party] is exluded 'from the polls', as if the issue didnt exist.
Eighty four percent support is a game changer.
Such overdue reform may yet be NZ's most profound global peace initiative since that other great campus contrary to status quo initiative "Nuke Free."
I say University is there to support "Cognitive Liberty" - Democracy depends on it. Anything else is tyranny of the minority.
