Here are two countries (Alaska being the only state in the U.S close to legalization of Cannabis at this time) at the brink of legalizing Cananbis. There is in fact a shop in Vancouver, B.C where you can purcahse cannabis, bubblehash, and budder. The latter being more potent forms containing much higher levels of THC than regular cannabis. I don't even think Canada will get Alaska's level of freedom anytime soon, which is infuriating.

Why are they even illegal in the first place? It sickens me to read things like "The Canadian government hopes to send the message that marijuana is harmful and illegal" - well, yes, it is illegal, but harmful? Marijuana is MORE safe than legal drugs we already have (alcohol and cigarettes). Much more safe. The level of tar i cannabis buds is 33% lower than in what you would find in cigarettes, and besides, 90% of cancer patients get it from the radioactivity of cigarettes, not the tar amount. Alcohol impairs liver function, and destroys brain cells. And how is pot harmful again?

What are your opinions on the legalization of this wonderful drug? Or drugs in general? I personally think all drugs should be legalized; whatever a person wants to submit to themselves is their choice.

Pointing out the wrongs of other drugs to justify another drug is not a real arguement.

Which drug causes more damage and which less is irrelevant. The fact that they do cause damage and people are still stupid enough to use them is a good reason to ban them.

As opposed to alcohol and cigarettes which cause no damage at all right? In Holland it's legal and I occasionally smoke a joint or two and I feel perfectly fine.

How deadly is the substance abuse epidemic? Here are some interesting statistics from the National Institute on Drug Abuse regarding the death rate attributable to various drugs in an average year.

Tobacco kills about 390,000. LEGAL

Alcohol kills about 80,000. LEGAL

Second hand smoke kills about 50,000.

Cocaine kills about 2,200. ILLEGAL

Heroin kills about 2,000. ILLEGAL

Aspirin kills about 2,000. LEGAL

Marijuana kills 0. ILLEGAL

There has never been a recorded death due to marijuana at any time in U.S. history. It is nearly impossible to die from marijuana consumption, THC is a very safe chemical, it's much safer and less addictive than nicotine or alcohol, so why is it illegal?

At present it is estimated that marijuana's LD-50 is around 1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.

Also:

CANNABIS/HEMP/MARIJUANA was the NUMBER ONE annually renewable natural resource for 80 percent of all paper, fiber, textiles and fuel, from 6,000 years ago until about 125 years ago. Furthermore, it was used for 5 to 50 percent of the food, light, land and soil reclamation, and even 20 percent or more of all medicine. Everyone, from the educated to the uneducated, the farmer to the townsperson, the doctors and the scientists used CANNABIS/HEMP/MARIJUANA products and depended on them.75 to 90 percent of all paper used from at least 100 AD to 1883 was made of CANNABIS/HEMP. Books, (including Bibles), money and newspapers all over the world have been mainly printed on CANNABIS/HEMP for as long as these things have existed in human history.

One hundred and 25 years ago, 70 to 90 percent of all rope, twine, cordage, ship sails, canvas, fiber, cloth, etc., was made out of CANNABIS/HEMP fiber! It was replaced by DuPont's newly discovered petrochemical fiber (nylon) beginning in 1937. By comparison, CANNABIS/HEMP is 4 times softer than cotton, 4 times warmer, 4 times more water absorbent, has 3 times the strength of cotton, is many times more durable, is flame retardant, and doesn't use pesticides. Fifty percent of all pesticides are used on cotton, yet cotton uses only 1 percent of the farmland in the U.S! CANNABIS/HEMP/MARIJUANA is the most health giving plant on Earth and it doesn't require pesticides or herbicides! It is the healthiest plant for human consumption, and for the Earth itself.

Anyway, prohibition makes no sense, the US should have realized this after the prohibition of alcohol, the outlawing of alcohol created an organized crime syndicate of national proportions and, overnight, made criminals of hundreds of thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens.

Smoking marijuana is a victimless crime if I ever saw one. We should allow people to do whatever they want to themselves, the law should come into play when they harm someone else.

In summation only a complete twat would think that cannabis should remain outlawed. There are simply too many reasons why marijuana should be completely legal.

im sure coke and heroin would kill more if it was more easily available.

They would certainly cause more deaths, but they would just as certainly have a lower rate of death among users. Legalization doesn't just make it okay to do a drug without going to jail, it makes it okay to do a drug without worrying about the quality and immediate danger to your health that that drug might cause. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather drink a commercial product like Southern Comfort than some hillbilly's moonshine, with god-knows-what put in it.

You might say, yeah, well, people who do a drug even though they know it could kill them, and then complain when it kills them (obviously I'm talking about drugtakers as a collective here) because it's spiked with bleach or pcp are dumbasses. But the fact is that most people are going to get introduced to street drugs relatively safely, maybe from a trusted friend, and their addiction to said drugs will lead them to the point where they're willing to risk their life every day trying to get high on some junk they got off a street corner. It is not fair to blame them for actions they do while under the influence of that drug (and when you are addicted to something, you are always under it's influence, even when it's not in your system) even if they knew that the consequences could be terrible when they were first offered it. 'Common sense' politics be damned.

The point was that marijuana doesn't directly cause death. No fatal illnesses are caused by the inhalation or ingestion of marijuana. Saying that marijuana kills because it inhibits people's judgements is like saying higher education kills or absent-mindedness kills. People commit suicide all the time because of pressures from work, school, or the social lives, and someone could just zone out while driving (I've done it a number of times) and smash into another car or a pedestrian.

ScotchGuy

WHAT?

Who said that people smoke and drive around? That's not what this is about. I'm certain that if marijuana was legalized that it would still be illegal to drive under the influence of it.

Smoking marijuana in and of itself is victimless, killing someone while driving under the influence of anything is not. Just because you smoke does not mean you drive...

I've been in plenty of vehicles where everyone was smoking, it happens more than you think.

Sure, they legalize it, then we'll have the same people bitching because people eat and talk on cellphones and smoke cigarettes when they drive, and that they should be allowed to smoke weed and drive.

You'll have high people walking down the streets, out in public, being stupid, causing accident after accident.

This will happen. It doesn't happen with alcohol on a -wide- scale because alcohol has been an industry for decades, and we were brought up that there is a proper place and time to drink, and that you shouldn't operate vehicles.

In this day and age of whiney liberal "I wanna do this and I wanna do it now, the constitution says blah bla blah" type people, once you make it legal, they will start on something else like driving, or being fired for showing up to work high, or some other BS reason.

If people want to sit in their basement and get high after a stressful day, and not come out of their house for the next 5 - 10 hours, thats their business.

I don't want to deal with the idiots who don't care, however. The ones who will just walk down the street with a joint in their hand cause they think they look cool now. Or the ones who will start robbing 7-11 to get their high cause they are so burned out on their legal drug, they can't even keep a steady job to afford it.

ScotchGuy
September 4th, 2004, 05:56
The thing is, it will be legal and cheap, I doubt they'd need to rob a place, especially for a drug which is only psychologically addictive.

I've never heard of a crime epidemic because of people not getting their cigarettes, it's because they're easy to obtain and cheap. This would be the same case with marijuana, except that marijuana is less addictive, so I don't think we'd need to worry about that.

Zach
September 4th, 2004, 07:00
You get a different high from cigarettes than you do from weed however, and a different addiction. A psychological addiction is just as serious as any other addiction.

Weed has a more disreable high, which means you increase the desire for it over other highs.

FOr instance. I have 500mg pills of hydrocodone/apap sitting here on my desk. I take them for strong pain like after dental work, and currently am experimenting with them to help try and diagnose some possible disorders that are effecting my sleep.

When you first pop one of these you are seriously off to lala land. Then it becomes two. Sometimes two work, and sometimes even 3 don't do much.. Its easy to see how someone gets addicted. These pills will knock you out, or give you a dizzy happy feeling that you will never want to leave; its sometimes hard to look at the bottle and say NO. I have met people who talk the same way about weed, people who say it takes twice as much weed to get them high as it used to, etc.

Various levels of addiction are there, no matter what drugs you are using. And going to extreme lengths to get what you want is a well documented flaw thruought human history.
I know when I smoked weed it seriously impaired my motor skills, and made me want to sleep a lot. I didn't like it because in particular I felt weak and powerless and not under my own control. Others might embrace that same feeling as their own high.

All it takes is one strong desire, and a ready supply, waiting to be taken; by any means necesarry.

There are a lot of "Don't Drug Drive" posters around here, because of people causing accidents whilst high. My friend's car was smashed in by a drug driver only last night. So yes, it is an issue.

The whole argument is fucking stupid. People need to give and take a little more. There isn't a right side to this debate, just accept what you're forced into. You won't change it. Give up.

Here (http://everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=689509&lastnode_id=696847) is what I believe to be a good opinion on the matter:

"The latest stats on marijuana research

There aren't any!

But here's why: The FDA keeps approving research projects left and right, and Uncle Sam keeps telling the Universities and scientists they can't do the research (because it means allowing some people to smoke pot for science!).

However, I did dig up some stats on where the current research has and hasn't gotten, so at least you can tell people who spout pseudo-science at you to shut the fuck up.

There's been no official research on the effects of marijuana on arthritis, tendonitis, depression, and a lot of other stuff. Unofficially, quite a lot of people claim that it fixes or helps all these things, and just the same number claim that it causes them. But there is chemical evidence that cannabinoids may contain anti-inflammatories (explaining why it helps arthritis, etc.], and may help to ease the symptoms of depression, though nobody claims to know why.

A study was recently completed which tested the addictive properties and withdrawal symptoms of marijuana--of COURSE Uncle Sam would allow THAT--and the results are downright funny.
Only heavy, long-term smokers were reported to have physical withdrawal. Mind you, to qualify as a long-term heavy smoker, you had to a) have smoked an average of a doobie a day for at least five years, and B) have smoked more than 5,000 times. (5,000 times is once a day for thirteen years.) Of course, the headlines of the project screamed "MARIJUANA IS ADDICTIVE!", and then the text below went on to explain, "Well, the symptoms were mild and only lasted 28 days...". As I said, it was funny. But their punchline, which I should at least give lip service to, was that after smoking like a fiend most of your life, you will experience moderate to mild withdrawal, and the symptoms come from the same part of your brain that handles withdrawal from heroin and crack...and chocolate and The X-Files, for that matter.

Oh, and I actually read several--meaning MORE THAN ONE--websites claiming that pot caused undue aggression in its users. Don't worry, none of the legitimate sites said that, but STILL."

Actually I knew a guy in HS who said he could fight like hell when he was smoked up.
He said he just didn't feel a thing when people would hit him, so he'd be in a fight and just keep swinging and swinging until he beat the shit out of the other guy.

He was a cool guy tho, lost touch with him, and then I moved out of state. Oh well.

I don't smoke cannibas, and I am quite anti-drugs, but I don't have any real problem with cannibas. As long as people on it don't speak to me I am quite happy, as there is somthing about stoned people that just do my head in when they talk. I would happily see it legalised

In Scotland just now there is a real problem with Ecstacy and Cocaine, infact one of my boyhood friends died just the other week from taking E, and I know very few people that have never tried it.

Heroin is also starting to become a major problem. Before it was mainly just concentrated in the cities, but now its creeping into the small towns at an alarming rate. Just about everywhere you go has a "bigger than you would think" junkie population, and it makes me sad seeing people I used to know ending up on smack. I read somewhere that the region that I stay in has an estimated 15,000 herion addicts, compared with 3,000 10 years ago. Which is very concerning given only about 300,000 people live around here. Fucking 1 in 20 are a junkie.

People need conciousness to control themselves. Getting High is not a solution.

Wait, let me guess, you've never been high?

If you had been, you'd realize how stupid you look, where did you get your drug information, you believe in the DARE program don't you?

I think it's funny that you make the jump from low conciousness to doing something horrible. When you're really tired do you go outside looking for people to murder, or jump in a car and start speeding?

Getting high is not a solution to what? That doesn't make sense. The only thing people are looking for when they get high is an answer to their boredom. Marijuana takes care of that quite well, and in a safe manner.

Right, so according to you, if I smoke, I lower my reaction time, so that means I think in my head, "MUST GO DO HORRIBLE AWFUL THINGS!" Newsflash, you don't lose anywhere near enough conciousness while high to do something you wouldn't normally. All those horror stories you hear about people thinking they can fly are untrue.

Generally when you get high, the following happens:
1. You laugh more.
2. You eat more.
3. Everything is fun.
4. You get a changed perspective on things.
5. You sometimes feel tired, depending on the type.

I suggest you get high, once, and then you'll understand how harmless it really is.

If you think being high is so terrible I'd hate to hear what you think about the legal drug, alcohol.

No, getting fun with the help of drugs or whatever is not good no matter what argument you give me. If it is, we will see marijuana and other kind of drugs everywhere. When you get low on conciousness, you will lose your reasoning, at least weaken it. It&#39;s the same as if you are really angry, you loose reasoning. And without a good reasoning you may think doing something just fine, even though it&#39;s horrible.

If you really want fun, go ahead smoke marijuana everyday and see what it brings you, it&#39;s up to you. And no, if you never smoke before it doesnt mean that you are a chicken or something. I never jump from a 20 stories building and yet, no one calls me a chicken.

Seriously, what people want to do to relax in their own time is no business of anyone else&#39;s, impaired judgement or not. Would you ban all unorthodox sex (i.e. non-missionary and more frequent than once a month) because there&#39;s a pedophile or an exhibitionist in your community? The drug laws are unreasonably restrictive, and they punish people who would be able to use drugs appropriately.

As long as they smoke marijuana and dont disturb anyone else, that&#39;s fine. But what makes such thing guaranteed to happen? That&#39;s why we need law, to protect other&#39;s people interest from other&#39;s people abusal.

Fugitivo : Using drugs appropiately? Come on, such people need stong self constitution and how many people do you think can use drugs (i mean illegal drugs) appropiately? Do you think you can be at the top of your mental condition forever, what if that appropiate guy someday feeling depresive and consume those drugs INAPPROPIATELY? Can you guarantee such a thing doesnt happen? No? Thats why the law is restrict.

Hitmonlee : Yes, like the first paragraph I wrote. They are free to make their own decision whether they&#39;ll use it or not but as long as they are not disturbing public interest.

This topic tends to continue to a flame war.

Why would a person high on marijuana want to disturb anyone?&#33;? You know that most marijuana smokers like to be left alone, right? That most are extremely paranoid of cops? The last thing they would do is go out and try and disturb ANYONE. And sorry, but what abusal? You have to be kidding, or at least not very bright. Have you honestly ever heard a single case on the news about a guy who went around abusing people after he had some bong hits? I know I haven&#39;t. ;)

"how many people do you think can use drugs (i mean illegal drugs) appropiately?"

Lots. Illegal drug users do not have the luxuary of being able to use in the public in a bar or something. And if we get into more powerful drugs people are usually smart enough to get a trip sitter. However, when I say powerful drugs I mean stuff like Datura (which hilariously, is legal to cultivate and buy&#33;), or high amount of mushrooms, or something like PCP or whatever. Not marijuana. I know tons, and tons, and tons, and tons of people who smoke mj at home by themselves everyday and don&#39;t go and disturb anyone.

"Do you think you can be at the top of your mental condition forever, what if that appropiate guy someday feeling depresive and consume those drugs INAPPROPIATELY? Can you guarantee such a thing doesnt happen? No? Thats why the law is restrict."

Right, because we all know this is only in the case of illegal drugs. No one ever consumes a bottle of whiskey after their girlfriend leaves them, and even if they did, they certainly wouldn&#39;t do anything stupid like acting INAPPROPIATELY and disturb anyone. Because the Government is always right and if alcohol is legal it must be a safe product that ensures the peoples safety from drunks under the influence of booze at all times. This includes drunk driving, no one ever dies of that. Ever.

See? This is the problem with talking to people about the effects drugs have with someone who has never tried them. If you actually do something you normally wouldn&#39;t while you&#39;re high, than it&#39;s not just the drug. Sort of like some people do things they regret later when they&#39;re angry. Should we make it illegal to be angry too, because of the possible problems it could cause?

Wake up, I don&#39;t know if you live in the US or not, but billions of tax dollars are going into a war that cannot be won. Drug use has not stopped, or even lessened. The prisons are full of first offense pot smokers who are nonviolent.

As long as they smoke marijuana and dont disturb anyone else, that&#39;s fine. But what makes such thing guaranteed to happen? That&#39;s why we need law, to protect other&#39;s people interest from other&#39;s people abusal.

Who do you think is worse, someone who&#39;s high or someone who&#39;s drunk? Have you ever been disturbed by someone who was high, how about someone who was drunk? People get disturbed all the time, outlawing a drug to stop the possibility of someone being disturbed is completely absurd.

Alcohol kills thousands of people a year (not including accidents while driving) and people who are drunk are usually violent and belligerent.

Come on, such people need stong self constitution and how many people do you think can use drugs (i mean illegal drugs) appropiately?

How many people use legal drugs appropriately? Answer that, think of all the drunk driving incidents there are, that&#39;s not to say there are no incidents of people getting in accidents while high, but there&#39;s significantly less. Do you think that all illegal drugs are terrible and outlawed for good reason because they make you go crazy or what? Trust me, alcohol is much worse than cannabis.

Didn&#39;t the US learn anything from the attempt to prohibit alcohol? It ended up raising crime, and people didn&#39;t stop. If someone wants to smoke cannabis, they will, regardless of the law, should we really be spending money on trying to bust some 14 year old kid who wants to try it?

"So what&#39;s the solution? Legalization. By legalizing drugs the government can control the distribution and standardize dosages, thus preventing overdose deaths. The &#036;400 billion now wasted on the war on drugs would easily fund clinics to distribute these drugs and to offer withdrawal programs for those who wish to break their habit.

Additionally, by eliminating the profit motive from the illegal sale of drugs, street crimes, including burglary, robbery and murder would plummet. Addicts would not have to steal to supply their habits and drug lord turf wars would end, just as they ended at the repeal of prohibition. Prison populations would also decline as non-violent offenders are released.

Currently, it is easier for a teenager to buy marijuana than to buy beer or tobacco. By selling marijuana through drug stores, teenagers would lose access to the drug and high taxes on the product would add to government coffers instead of draining them."

Scotch Guy is most definitely right.

Marijuana is probably safer than alcohol. Mostly because I&#39;ve never seen a person that was high on marijuana angry. Drunk people on the other hand get violent sometimes. Also most people that get high do so at their own homes. Meaning, they don&#39;t need to drive home to pass out like drunk people do. Plus a marijuana high doesn&#39;t really last that long anyway. So, if you&#39;re at a party and you smoke then you can wait it out so you can drive home.

I don&#39;t think that you should be able to walk into the super-market smoking a joint, but, then again, you can&#39;t walk into a store drinking a beer either. Therefore you should probably be allowed to smoke wherever you can drink (Marijuana bars maybe?) or in other designated places. I don&#39;t see how it can be any more dangerous than drinking.

Also, like ScotchGuy said, it could definately profit your government. I know I would probably smoke, on occassion, if I could pick it up from Wal-Mart. I would much rather do that than walk down the street and pick it up from some junkie that cut half of it with parsley. And now somebody is gonna say something stupid like, "SEE&#33; That means that everyone will try it and get addicted&#33;" That is just simply untrue. Most people have already tried it anyway. And the people that haven&#39;t most likely have strong beliefs against it. Beliefs that they are, most likely, not willing to go against just because the government says they can. It&#39;s just not for everyone. Just like alcohol and cigarettes aren&#39;t for everyone.

I would just like to sweetly add the following:

I was having a session (marijuana only) with some guys I knew at school. And they wanted money for coke, and they were talking about robbing a gas station. After they all decided they wern&#39;t going to rob it because people knew them there, etc....they asked ME to. They told me I should put my hair up and go and rob this god damn gas station&#33; I was incredibly high at the time, so what did I do? I told them "No". There was no question about it. I was not going to rob a fucking gas station. Especially in this state.

But wait, acording to Buhutz, wasn&#39;t I suppesod to say: "YES, I WILL ROB THE GAS STATION BECAUSE THE CANNABIS HAS LOWERED MY CONSCIOUSNESS AND THEREFORE PREVENTED ME FROM MAKING A GOOD DECISION".

Oh right, he&#39;s never smoked it before and doesn&#39;t know what the fuck he&#39;s talking about. What a twat.
