(ed: here in new zealand our new reformist gummint is promising a referendum on cannabis (no..!..not binding..!..don’t be silly..!) – and this to happen in about three years..(this move at a kind of glacial-pace with our new reformist gummint shows how we don’t like to rush things..down here..
i mean – we do have a bit of a ‘p’-epidemic around these parts…(withdrawals best treated with strains of cannabis with a heavy body stone (google it..!..)..
but..y’know..!..yeah! – nah..!..eh..?..
s.f.a. is gonna change – with the exception of the monopoly on medical-cannabis being handed holtus boltus to big-pharma..(don’t ask..!..his name is peter dunne – recently departed parliament – his task there clearly completed..
and this following his decades of work in the interests of big-tobacco..and big-alcohol..
some people loath him so much – they call him peter dung…
i am one of those people..)
Norway is to become the first Scandinavian country to decriminalise drugs as it focuses on treatment rather than punishment.
The majority of the Norwegian parliament the Storting – backed the historic shift which was supported by the Conservatives (Hoyre) – Liberals (Venstre) – the Labor Party (Ap) and the Socialist Left (SV).
They directed the national government to reform its policies on drugs.
(ed:..gee..!..i imagine if an outbreak of commonsense from all out political parties like that happened here..
don’t be so silly..!..i then tell myself..)
