I'm a non-smoker , but don't mind the social use of cannabis weed ! I am for legalisation for growth of non-commercialised personal use  ! We all need to chill more !!

All drugs should be legal. No exceptions.

In answer to the OP. It's a law which is barely enforced as it is... Nicotine and alcohol are both extremely damaging, and both themselves entirely legal above a certain age. So yeah. Go ahead.


I agree with JBH about driving laws though, mind. At the very least let it be equal to drink driving offences.

I'm 55 years old, been smoking the pot since the early 70's. I now work 2 jobs, pay my bills and taxes and in my community I'm known for being dependable, trustworthy, and kind. I also believe pot should be made legal for many reasons! It does have medicinal value as it helps thousands of people fighting AIDS, Cancer, Glacoma, and many other ailments, it also produces a great fiber that can be woven into clothes, ropes, etc.


People that say it should be illegal are mostly people that have never smoked pot and blindly follow the propaganda that corporations and republicans spew out (And most of that propaganda is usually false information). Just their way of trying to rule every aspect of your life.

I used to smoke it like it was going out of style...but, only smoke it rarely, now (by 'rarely' I mean once or twice a year). I don't see anything wrong with it, and really- there's a LOT more to take issue with when it comes to alcohol than with weed.


 


It should be legalized. Just do it and stop wasting my tax dollars on holding non-violent criminals in jail cells and allowing child molestors walk free with only a promise to register themselves as a sex offender every years. Seriously.

It is an economical disaster in the waiting. I'm for total ban of the weed.

All of the above being in denial, and is not rational.

And what are YOU addicted to?  Because - your answer is VERY irrational since it doesn not take into account - REALITY...


Everyone has their vice's, it's just being honest about it. It's bad for anyone, especially when used to excess, as it is with any drug, legal or not. The denial bit is where a person thinks that they have control when it has control over the person. Nicotine and alcohol, is not an exception.

Canada.


You need to do the research on that one.


And considering, I have been involved with some policing areas, Canada is one of the foremost countries where drug control is an issue, and this is outside of the economic issue that is occuring there. These drug lords sell the other stuff. Drug lords setup where drug laws are relaxed, so I'm hoping that the US for the most part see this as a "high priority,"in prevention. Education is probably the greatest catalyst for change in attitude in these areas.


In answer to your other queries. Insurance is dependent on employees being drug free and fully competent at work that bears a burden on business, as in 'occupational health and safety.' and liability issues.

>And as far as your insurance bullshit...  doesn't seem to stop a lot of dickheads from having a beer on their lunch break - or a few LEGAL prescription pills...    But as far as them trying to tell me what I can do when I'm off the clock... yeah - NO - unless companies want to start paying people 24hrs a day 7 days a week... and if you're gonna play dumb and say because I smoke a pot pipe before I go to bed that it will somehow impair me the next morning for work... yeah - then it's completely safe to say you're actually pretty clueless about the effects of marijuana... and it is YOU who should do some research...

Well, here. The breath test and drug test is random. A shame that the weed stays in the system for up to 6 months. Pretty hard to get away with as these are regular. I know workers in a warehouse that have lost feet on a few occasions because of these issues.


When is having the weed, only ever anything but to get high or low or whatever it does?


Defending it doesn't do it justice.

That's what I was describing before as being "rational?"


You may make the rest of the males cringe!


Do you know how to use a cheese grater? Is Cheese a stretch for you?

Drug users get involved in crime because drugs are illegal. The same thing happened in the US under prohibition. But once prohibition ended the link to crime was cut.
