The 'plug in' seems to have been upgraded.

At a glance it seems like this version has features that were absent from the first. Maybe it's just me but the option to expand to full screen seems new as well as the 'teaser break'. Whatever, they will give me something to look into.


Meanwhile, hopeful still after more than 30 years of expecting cannabis to be legal in Australia by now, I scan the news and internet hoping for signs that that the beast we call prohibition has sustained a setback especially in the 'War on Drugs' but, happy to settle for a minor wound to any part of its anatomy, my hopes of benefiting from such change are diminishing.


It was reported on the 20th April 2016 on the BBC that

A UN meeting on worldwide drugs policy has opened in New York that is being billed as the most significant such conference in years.

Mexico was among the countries that requested the session. Thousands have died in the war on drugs there, and some believe legalising marijuana would deprive criminals of funding.

But can Mexican voters be convinced? Was the question posed by reporter Katy Watson.


To the north of the USA which is the most prominent supporter of prohibition and war in general is Canada where the last federal election was one by Justin Trudeau in October 2015. A covincing win that was largely aided by his promise to legalise marijuana. Voters will have to wait until 2017 before the repeal of prohibition but it seems to be a fait accompli with mass demonstrations showing support from the electorate.

Here is the pinup boy himself but for those who like their political meat nice and juicy they migh prefer to read about his dad; not the 'War on Drugs' but the 'Water War Crimes'. The moral being 'Be wary of those who look good after being dipped in shit'
