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

Checkpoint 'fishing' nets a small bag of vegetables!

I found this article from nzherald.co.nz that you might be interested in: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/hawkes-bay-today/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503462&objectid=12027757

The MildGreens has a different, and perhaps instructive perpective.

Who exactly was offended?  (there indeed lies the lie!, absent a victim or complainant who would know what the social harm 'loss' was... especially as a Select Committee sits hearing just how damn beneficial cannabis is for countless thousands)  while Police continue the mythology, especially where their continued faith in their infamous BERL report is to be any indication of the claimed but never tested social burden. From that report it can be more fairly estimated the cost of this interdiction by 'fishing' cost about $20,000, what with police prosecutors saying this was at the 'high' end of serious offending and no doubt asking for jail time (x3), that legal aid (x3) was worth it all, oh, and court time, ESR reports, yadda yadda, grift, grift....  ain't it all being so terrible that someone was going to make money illegally on someones misery! 

So, Mr Policeman.... show us the actual photo of what you really found, it certainly wasn't a standing 'plantation' that, for joe cannabis consumer, looks more like highly desirable, greatly appreciated bud porn.

I can but only imagine how many good people this would have modestly recreated, or heaven forbid alleviated some ailment. 

Do these Police (apparently doing their jobs, but then so were the uniforms closing the padlocks on the carriages to Auschwitz) not understand that it just might be the law that is offensive and that it encourages, indeed incentivises entrepreneurial risk taking?  Or now, we have effectively destroyed the lives of three young men labelling them deviant 'forever and a day'. 

Twerps doesn't quite cut it.

Seriously, this Select Committee needs to understand, the right to possess, for whatever reason, cannabis is a barren right without the right to cultivate, process, store, transport, package and merchandise, exactly as prescribed in the law that Labour passed, by Order in Council in 2008

Google ( "Restricted Substances Regulations" 2008 ) - because no bloody journalist will.
