"Not in any truthful discussion would anyone be able to say that either of those two non cannabis drugs are clean/safe."
Please provide some authority for that statement. If it's true someone with a reputation would have said it.
Opium and mushrooms are clean and safe when used properly - safer than aspirin.
"Harm reduction as practiced by the pusher man almost always ends up with somebody with their pockets and bank account(s) overflowing with loonies."
Give me as many examples as possible of "harm reduction" resulting in a rich person. Compare that number with the number getting rich off prohibition - the oil men, the pharmaceutical companies, the prison builders, the gangsters ... the first number is guaranteed to be a fraction of the second, if it even exists in the first place.
"The facts remain; there was trafficking in drugs going down right next door to a steady customer source."
In Holland there are 700 cafes and a bunch of shroom shops and nobody gets hurt and everyone has a swell time.
"Having said that, to add to the mix is essential. No amount of harm redustion will ever prevent addicts fromm being cast out of work, family, gainful employment and acceptance."
You need to google "NAOMI" and "heroin" and take a crash course in reality - it's the opposite of what you claim.
"Personality Traits of Addiction"
Addiction simply means "attraction". Withdrawal symptoms are best handled by the medical system, not police officers and jailers. Could you imagine how bad tobacco prohibition would be - how it would make everything worse?
"What makes this whole thing stink is that David Malmo Levine had the audacity to admit to the world that Marc Emery bankrolled his entire operation."
Where did I say that? Do you have to lie every time your fingers hit the keyboards?
"A whole lot of people will not let that one go unnoticed."
Maybe. If it were true. But it isn't true.
"A good example of poor planning ahead and getting everything shot to Hell; except of course, from the hard core drug culture. Good luck, chisel tooth."
Either back up what you say or suffer the instant karma of the lying scapegoater. The last big lying scapegoater blew his brains out with a gun ... I hope it happens to all of them.http://www.milliondollaritch.com/pics/hitler-suicide.gif
