MildGreen Initiative's curator insight, March 20, 1:08 PM

The problem with having overseas experts represent us (kiwi reform advocates) is not that they don't deserve being heard, rather that it creates the illusion that they are the last word on the subject. Support as it is being espoused around the PSA fails to note that it is a flawed response to  our drug policy, imbeding drug by drug failure contrary to national drug policy best practice, and ignores that we had the best practice solution in the conveniently discarded all drug "Restricted Substances Regulations 2008" without discussion or critique or indeed evidence of failure. PSA is a political solution that suits entirely the synthetics industry without addressing the core problem, prohibition itself.
