Stuff.co.nz – Lynne Bower and Deborah Stevens 6 May 2020Family First Comment: Boom! Superb commentary – which asks the right questions:“Setting aside the obvious question of why are we legalising and making readily available a product that is associated with a number of “harms to individuals, families/whānau and communities”, we need to carefully consider whether legalisation will enable any of the bold claims that are made in regards to promoting the wellbeing of New Zealanders. Firstly, legalisation is not necessary for “raising awareness of the health risks associated with cannabis use” — we can do this without legalisation. Further, there is nothing in the bill that says how “access to health and social services, and other kinds of support for families/whānau” will be improved. Further still, we need only look to other jurisdictions that have legalised cannabis for recreational use to see that eliminating the illegal supply of cannabis, restricting young people’s access to cannabis, and making sure the response to any breach of the law is fair, are unlikely to happen.#saynopetodopeSetting aside the obvious question of why are we legalising and making readily available a product that is associated with a number of “harms to individuals, families/whānau and communities”, we need to carefully consider whether legalisation will enable any of the bold claims that are made in regards to promoting the wellbeing of New Zealanders.Firstly, legalisation is not necessary for “raising awareness of the health risks associated with cannabis use” — we can do this without legalisation.Further, there is nothing in the bill that says how “access to health and social services, and other kinds of support for families/whānau” will be improved.Further still, we need only look to other jurisdictions that have legalised cannabis for recreational use to see that eliminating the illegal supply of cannabis, restricting young people’s access to cannabis, and making sure the response to any breach of the law is fair, are unlikely to happen.Evidence does not support the argument that the black market and its associated gang involvement will disappear with the legalisation of cannabis. In Canada and California, government-authorised sellers are unable to keep up with the newly created cannabis demand, and government prices are higher than those of the black market. The range of cannabis products available is also greater on the black market. Hence, the black market continues to find support and thrives.Although the bill sets the legal age of cannabis use at 20 years, this will not guarantee the safety of younger people. Research has found a significant increase in adolescent cannabis-associated emergency department and urgent care visits following legalisation, with greater numbers of young people requiring treatment for acute medical or psychiatric symptoms following cannabis use.Research from jurisdictions in the USA that have legalised recreational cannabis use also shows that responses to breaches of the law in regard to cannabis are not applied fairly. Minority groups and indigenous people remain disproportionately represented in cannabis-related arrests, contrary to what legalisation proponents suggest.Alcohol and tobacco companies have invested heavily in the newly created cannabis industry overseas. Cannabis is set to be the next addiction-for-profit industry. Given the way in which corporations are already organising themselves for legal recreational cannabis use, we need to ask ourselves: “Who will really benefit from such legalisation?”If we recognise that there are harms associated with cannabis — as we do — then legalisation is not the way to address those harms. A better way forward may be to take the time to explore and publicly discuss the decriminalisation of cannabis, as opposed to its legalisation.Decriminalisation would facilitate the separation of cannabis use from issues of social justice and health, and provide space in which the work of focusing on the wellbeing of New Zealanders can be better addressed. It will be wiser to vote “no” to the proposed Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill, and instead push for public discussion on the decriminalisation of cannabis.— Dr Lynne Bowyer and Dr Deborah Stevens are co-directors of The New Zealand Centre for Science and Citizenship Trust.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/300005217/better-to-decriminalise-cannabis-rather-than-legalise-it–bill-opponents

(REUTERS)-Bangladesh fought back against India through half centuries from Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mehedi Hasan to reach 322 for six at the close of the third day’s play in the one-off Test in Hyderabad yesterday.Bangladesh’s most experienced pair of Shakib and Mushfiqur added 107 for the fifth-wicket before the latter combined with the 19-year-old Mehedi for an unbroken seventh-wicket partnership of 87 to frustrate the hosts.The visitors still face a steep task if they are to avoid the follow-on in response to India’s mammoth first innings total of 687-6 declared.At stumps, captain Mushfiqur was unbeaten on 81 with Mehedi not out on 51, his maiden test fifty, at the other end with Bangladesh still needing 166 runs to make India bat again. The duo kept India wicketless for the entire third session.After resuming on 41-1, the touring side suffered a major blow in just the third over of the day when Tamim Iqbal was run out on his overnight score of 24.The left-handed opener was stranded near the middle of the pitch after a terrible mix-up with partner Mominul Haque while attempting a second run.Paceman Umesh Yadav, who dismissed Soumya Sarkar on Friday, found enough reverse swing to trouble Bangladesh’s batsmen before he pinned down Mominul in front of the stumps to dismiss him leg before for 12.Umesh continued to trouble Mahmudullah with his pace and movement but pace-bowling colleague Ishant Sharma reaped the benefit by dismissing the batsman leg before for 28 in his first over of the day.Ishant, who replaced Umesh, beat Mahmudullah’s bat with an angled delivery and the batsman’s attempt to overturn the decision on review also proved futile.Shakib then launched a counterattack against India’s bowlers and his 21st test fifty was studded with 14 boundaries in a knock that came off 103 balls.The left-hander was out caught trying to loft off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, the world’s top-ranked bowler in Tests, over mid-offAshwin’s left-arm spin colleague Ravindra Jadeja then dismissed Sabbir Rahman for 16, the batsman falling leg before while attempting a sweep shot.Mushfiqur, who got the benefit of doubt in a run out appeal when he was batting on 18, showed plenty of application and temperament during his knock and will be crucial to Bangladesh’s hopes of avoiding the follow-on.Off-spinner Mehedi gave his captain, who suffered a blow to his right hand in the last over of the day against Ishant, able support and hit 10 crisp boundaries in his flourishing knock.INDIA 1st innings 687 for 6 decl (V.

… Defending champions into several finals GUYANA’S female boxing prodigy Alesha Jackman proved her dominance once again with an emphatic win over home boxer Sharika Elias in her opening fight (a semi-final clash) of the 2019 Caribbean Boxing Championships. Junior boxer Richard Howard and Elite boxer Daren France, however, lost their bouts, which resulted in Team Guyana suffering mixed fortunes in Trinidad on Friday evening.According to one of the Guyanese coaches, Sebert Blake, both male boxers’ defeats were “controversial, more so with the Howard fight”.President of the Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) Steve Ninvalle added that the Howard decision was very one-sided. Keevin Allicock looks to defend his Caribbean title this evening in T&T.“Richard Howard lost … we protested that fight as it was the most blatant robbery ever seen. I had to lodge US$1000 in order for the protest to proceed … if we lose the protest the money gone.” The fight was being reviewed up to press time. Howard lost to Trinidadian Nyrell Hosein in a youth bantamweight clash, while France (who had won the triple championships (Novice, Intermediate and Open) in 2019, was beaten by Grenadian Dariel Sylvester in a heavyweight clash (91kg).Jackman, on the other hand, who fought in the last clash, was able to stop the home team’s boxer in a Youth Women’s Novices 64kg battle. Alesha, who had been forced to fight her older sister Abiola in exhibition clashes of recent at home, did not rush into battle. In fact, she displayed a maturity by analysing her opponent and using her feet well to get in and out of Elias’s space. Even with her unusual tentative approach, the fight lasted only 1:53s into the first round. The Trinidadian had wrapped the Guyanese up by the head and when the referee separated them, Alesha complained about it. As soon as they were allowed to fight again, the Guyanese unleashed a staggering left hook that rocked the home team girl – this forced the referee to administer a standing eight count. Although Elias was allowed to continue, she was hurt – two additional left hooks right after ended the fight. FINALSDespite the controversial defeats on both nights (Guyana also protested against the Desmond Amsterdam defeat on Thursday evening), the defending champions have made their way into several finals. Both Alesha and Abiola were scheduled to fight in the final of their respective divisions last night, while Kevin Hunte was scheduled to compete in a semi-final clash in the super heavyweight contest. Meanwhile, Caribbean bantamweight champion Keevin ‘Lightning’ Allicock and former middleweight silver medallist Dennis Thomas, along with Mark Crawford (youth lightweight), Jullius Kesney and Emmanuel Pompey are scheduled to fight tonight in the final of their respective events.
It’s no secret that the Wisconsin volleyball team is a different team on the road than they are at home.After coming off of a successful home weekend where the Badgers beat the previously undefeated No. 2 Penn State as well as No. 24 Ohio State, Wisconsin is looking to carry the momentum from those victories and translate it into success as the team travels to Michigan this weekend. “[Carrying momentum on the road] is very important,” junior setter Jackie Simpson said. “To take great wins that we had the crowd backing us up with and now to go away and we don’t have that crowd momentum. We are going to have to use what [we did] this weekend to motivate us.”Since this will be the second time Wisconsin will face Michigan and Michigan State this season, head coach Pete Waite said carrying the momentum over from last weekend will be key if the Badgers are going to notch two more victories in the win column.”Big Ten play in the second round is even tougher because everybody knows each other a little bit better,” Waite said. “Now as we hit the road, we have to take our momentum of the high level of play we play here at home and do the same thing on the opponents’ court.”In Friday night’s matchup, the Badgers will take on a reeling Michigan team. After starting out the year 13-0 and being ranked as high as No. 19 in the AVCA Top 25, the Wolverines have struggled since Big Ten play has begun, only going 4-8. Despite the fact that Michigan has played poorly as of late, the Badgers are not taking the team for granted, as they look to avenge last year’s five-game loss in Ann Arbor. “You never want to repeat something like that again,” Waite said. “A close battle like that is something that you don’t forget about for a long time. I know that is something that is going to be in the back of our minds. It will be something we play hard for and not let happen again.”Conversely, Wisconsin will face a Michigan State Saturday night that has been on a surgeAfter beginning Big Ten play with a 2-4 record, including a sweep by the Badgers in Madison, the Spartans have won four of their last six games to move into fifth place.”They’re the kind of team that right now has found their way to the middle of the pack,” Waite said. “They are right there, ready to go after some people.” If the Badgers are going to be successful on the road, they are going to not only carry the momentum from last weekend’s matches, but also make sure their level of play is the same on the road as it is at home.”The things we’ve done well here, we’ve got to do [on the road],” Waite said. “It’s going to be serve-receive, it’s going to be tough serving, it’s going to be flowing well together as a team. I think it is totally something we can do. I don’t think it’s a problem. “They found something in the last weekend at home that was even another notch up from anything they have done all season, and we’ve been very strong in a number of matches. They are excited about it, and now they have a new fire lit under them to finish strong here the rest of the season.”
With the exception of its current five-game losing skid, Syracuse has proven it belongs in any discussion regarding the top contenders in the Big East. On Wednesday, without even taking the field, SU sent a strong message that it plans on staying in that discussion.Lindsay Taylor, a standout high school pitcher from Kings Park, N.Y., committed to Syracuse on Tuesday. Taylor is regarded by SU as one of the top prospects in the entire Northeast region.She has been featured in multiple Weekly Standout columns pertaining to the Northeast region on ESPNRISE.com. SU head coach Leigh Ross said the signing confirms SU’s successful attempt to corner the region as a program feeding ground. Though Syracuse (24-10, 3-5 Big East) won the Big East tournament a year ago and got out to a program-best start this season, consistently strong recruiting classes will be key to future success.The Orange looks to get back to those winning ways from early in the season and snap its losing streak in a doubleheader at Providence on Thursday. But on Wednesday, Ross took a moment to focus on the future and on Taylor.‘We’ve made it our priority to get the best kids from the state of New York,’ Ross said. ‘Lindsay should come in right away and make an immediate impact on our pitching staff.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textA two-time all-state selection and four-time all-conference selection at Kings Park High School, Taylor can throw five different pitches for strikes on a consistent basis. But as a power pitcher, Taylor’s heater is the pitch that jumps off the charts. Heading into her senior season, the Kings Park career wins record holder (69) recorded 833 career strikeouts, or an average of more than 11 per game and 277 per season.In 25 games during her junior season (2010), Taylor fanned 291 batters.‘She has great discipline with all those pitches and knows when to use them,’ said Kim McGinley, Taylor’s high school coach. ‘She also works hard through the entire year.’If Taylor sticks to her current pace, she will easily surpass the 1,000-strikeout mark. Taylor, a two-time Suffolk County Class A Pitcher of the Year, also threw a state single-season record nine no-hitters in 2010, bringing her to a total of 15 for her career. That number includes four perfect games.But it was more than just Taylor’s standout statistics that impressed the SU coaching staff. The goal of cornering the Northeast region, Ross said, is centered on the idea that prospects from the area are accustomed to the gritty Big East style of play.‘She has a tough-as-nails attitude in the circle,’ Ross said. ‘And this is not a flashy, finesse conference. There’s a different, hard-nosed attitude among players and people in the Northeast.’The coaching staff is also excited about welcoming in a freshman who could pay immediate dividends. The idea of a three-headed pitching monster is uncommon in college softball. But with the return of junior ace Jenna Caira (15-8, 1.78 ERA) and sophomore No. 2 Stacy Kuwik (9-1, 2.26 ERA), that’s exactly what the Orange may have in 2012.In many instances, the success of those current starters has drawn attention to the SU program. It has also added substance to the Orange recruiting pitch centered on players being given the chance to contribute from the get-go.As a freshman, Kuwik played a prominent role in SU’s run to the NCAA tournament a season ago. Caira, as a sophomore, was the Most Outstanding Player of the Big East tournament.‘Most of our freshmen are capable of contributing right away,’ SU assistant coach and pitching specialist Mike Bosch said. ‘That’s the caliber of kids we try to bring in.’The thought of having three potential aces excites Bosch. But he doesn’t think SU’s recent success was the primary reason Taylor signed with the Orange.‘We’re ecstatic to get a player of her caliber,’ Bosch said. ‘But you can’t judge off just one kid signing here. It’s a step, but success is never about just one player.’email@example.com Published on April 13, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Jarrad: firstname.lastname@example.org Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
View Gallery (2 Photos)One year ago, Wisconsin men’s basketball head coach Bo Ryan faced the prospect of replacing his entire backcourt, which was worth 168 starts between just two players.Players leave every year in the college game, but this past offseason demanded an even “taller” order, as Ryan’s entire frontcourt graduated, taking with it 203 games worth of starting experience.With preseason All-American senior Jordan Taylor and sophomore Josh Gasser returning to their respective guard positions, the eye of the Badgers turns to the front line where Tim Jarmusz, Jon Leuer and Keaton Nankivil are no longer present.The above three bigs wielded a savviness from the perimeter and on the defensive side of the ball, but the new, upcoming edition of the Wisconsin frontline may be heading in a slightly different direction.With the three most likely successors, junior Mike Bruesewitz and redshirt juniors Jared Berggren and Ryan Evans, several members of the team are expecting a stronger presence in the paint this season. Last year, more than half of Nankivil and Jarmusz’s shots came from the arc and just over 30 percent of Leuer’s team-leading 483 shots originated there as well.“Not that we can’t shoot, I think we’re both pretty comfortable stepping outside and shooting it, but I think we are a little bit more going inside and I think that’s something coach has seen early on in practice and something he really wants to emphasize early on,” Berggren said, referring to himself and redshirt freshman Evan Anderson.“We’re definitely more comfortable rolling to the basket, posting up, things like that, and I think we’ll see more of that this year.”Berggren appeared in 29 games last season, averaging 6.9 minutes per contest and converting .491 percent of his shots. Bruesewitz, meanwhile, appeared in every game, averaging just under 20 minutes, and put forth a .471 shooting percentage from the field.Evans, an athletically gifted, 6-foot-6, 210-pound forward, didn’t fare as well from the field last season, despite showing flashes of success. He shot at a clip of .311 percent and rarely attempted the three-ball.Anderson, on the other hand, still remains a bit of an enigma after redshirting last season. Standing at 6-foot-10, Anderson is tied with Berggren as the team’s second-tallest player, as freshman Frank Kaminsky stands one inch taller.But what sets Anderson apart is his 260-pound frame, which is 25 pounds heavier than the Badgers’ runner-up, Berggren.“He’s so wide and long; he’s tough to score on,” Berggren said. “You can’t move him in the post, and it’s hard to get shots over him. He’s got a huge wingspan. I definitely think he can contribute this year.”Prior to Wisconsin’s exhibition matchup against Wisconsin-Steven’s Point on Nov. 5, Anderson said the role he hoped to fulfill was to “back up Jared Berggren in the post,” but he ultimately wasn’t sure how Ryan would utilize him this year.Berggren and Anderson seem to represent the only options the team has for a true big man this season. And with Berggren zeroing in on a starting job, Ryan seemed to have suggested during the team’s media day on Oct. 24 that Anderson’s role is still up on the air.Against the Pointers, Anderson logged only two minutes of playing time.“We might not be as big,” Ryan said of the team’s collective size. “We could be, but then again, we might not be.”As much as players believe the 2011-12 season will feature more post-play and slashing than in years past, Ryan likes to remind people that putting bigs in the post was still an important element to a team that, at times, relied heavily on three-pointers in 2010-11.“I’ll give you the stat: The highest-percentage three is the three that was received from the post,” Ryan said. “Because a player catching is facing the rim in a shooting position, in a ready position. You don’t have to worry about charting it; we’ve already done it over the years.”One player who benefited from such passes last season was Bruesewitz, who converted 32 percent of his shots from the perimeter. With Leuer’s departure, the hard-working Bruesewitz will be counted on to develop into a consistent scorer.The 6-foot-6, 222 pound forward was a key figure despite coming off the bench most of last year. He scored 10 points in the second half of Wisconsin’s comeback victory over No. 1-ranked Ohio State and produced 8.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game during the NCAA Tournament.“Mike is just confident and continuing to grow mentally,” Taylor said. “He took a lot of strides last year. I remember the UNLV game; he felt so bad because he threw the ball away, and we told him to keep his head up.”“Later in the season he came up big for us … game in and game out he was making big shots for us.”Nankivil and Leuer acted as two of UW’s three top scorers a year ago, and Taylor is the lone returning player to have averaged double-digit scoring for a entire season. With a large enough void to fill on the frontline, Ryan admits he’s on the look-out for a consistent scorer, but he’s not too worried about nobody stepping up on the frontline.“We have to figure out right now where the points are coming from, and usually there’s something about points. People usually step up and get them if you run good offense, get good shots, if you have guys that are unselfish,” he said.
