    If the issue is potency, then LEGALISE AND REGULATE, SURELY?


    "The Prime Ministers announcement that there will be a fresh review of the classification of cannabis is the second time the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs has been asked to have a look at this issue since Cannabis was made a Class C drug in 2004. The original move from Class B to Class C was made under David Blunkett as Home Secretary. His successor Charles Clarke asked for a review in 2005. At that time the Advisory Council said that while Cannabis was undoubtedly harmful it was still less harmful than other drugs like Amphetamines which are in Class B. It recommended no change. However the council also called for urgent further research on the potency and pattern of cannabis use. If the council were to back a change in classification and the Home Officer accepted that, it would require agreement of both houses of Parliament to effect a change."

    Cannabis should definitely be legalised and regulated it would cut out the middle man who now in a growing trend pushes harder drugs onto their customers, and the government would make a shed load of money taxing the thing.Before anyone gives the mental health = prolonged cannabis abuse, the so called evidence is incomplete and as the counter evidence is suggesting the mental illness was heritatory. There is far more crime commented from alcohol abuse than cannabis in take

    I think Britain should legalise cannibals and we can all grow them in our back gardens,
    then export them to Russia and Afghanistan and other developing countries.
    Britain has the potential to become a world leader is cannibalism and I for one am sure that all right-thinking people will agree with me.

    Given the wealth of scientific evidence showing that excessive marijuana use can lead to permanent psychosis and schizophrenia I'm not sure how big a fan I am of seeing it legalised. Especially after watching a heavy using friend committed into the worlds worst psychiatric ward recently after going completely 100% full on insane.

    Maybe legalisation and regulation would be good though, it would cut out a lot of the more harmful crap you see in the current crop that kicks around. Also, ultimately, people should have the right to do what they want with their own bodies, it shouldn't be the governments job to regulate that. The government is already much too intrusive in the UK, and anyone who disagrees, is a fĂșcking idiot.

    I used to smoke weed pretty heavily, but frankly I stopped seeing the point in it years ago (and hence stopped). Noticing how people act when they are binned when you aren't binned came as a real eye opener, people usually act like idiotic gormless twats when they're binned.

    Still, it's their body.

    Yes but I for one object to being surrounded by idiotic gormless binners,
    and I see it as my human raites to have them all sectioned and put in landfill sites.

    I saw this on the news today and shouted Morons! very loudly.

    It should definately be legal, apart from it being great, because of the financial impact it would have on organised crime and my improved health not having to smoke crap.

    I have got so stoned before i've heard voices a few times and been very paranoid but I think it strengthened my mind in the end as I had to face my paranoia and fear and let go so the voices became like your thoughts go when you meditate.

    I ruined a big portion of my life by getting stoned constantly and that is bad way to be, I'm sure most people know someone like this.
    I would never have smoked it constantly though if myself, my friends and family saw it the same way as alcoholism.
    Someone (maybe myself) would have realised I had a problem much sooner and my parents would have known the smell in my room wasn't garlic :lol:

    The only problem I have now is the extortionate price of low quality crap and that my accent is even more americanised when I'm stoned.

    I'd love to just grow my own wee plants without having to worry about being caught.

    Edit: I was reading in the paper at the weekend that farms in england are growing opium poppies under license because of a worldwide morphine shortage.
    Couldn't they just let the afghans do that? Oh wait that would empower the poor.

    hit the nail on the head there. want any E mate?

    plus if it were legalised poor N.I. citizens wouldnt be subjected to the uvf and their choice of added shoe polish / plastic etc.

    truth is every drug (drink included) are to relax / escape from problems and in moderation most dont have dehabilitating effects. those who have mental problems stemming from the weed have them beforehand and the ensuing paranoia just makes things worse.

    Um, no. I'm as huge an advocate of putting whatever drugs you want in your body as the next guy, but this is just patently false wishful thinking.

    It's all very well these cannibalists claiming they should be allowed to take drugs as a respite from the realities of the werld,

    i've smoked a fair bit in my time - it's like anything, if you boozed constantly you'd be a mess, so if you smoke weed constantly you'll also be a mess - moderation and all that!

    [quote:10ebb3dffe]those who have mental problems stemming from the weed have them beforehand[/quote:10ebb3dffe]

    totally.

    If people could/were allowed do it safe, open and responsible manor, i reckon there'd be alot less of these problems too.

    The whole criminalisation of cannabis thing [i:10ebb3dffe]really[/i:10ebb3dffe] pisses me off - the government hasn't got rid of/solved the "problem" so far, and it doesn't seem likely that they ever will using their tried, tested and failed methods... [b:10ebb3dffe]There is only one group of people that benefit from cannabis [and drugs in general] being illegal - drug dealers and their various [i:10ebb3dffe]benefactors[/i:10ebb3dffe].[/b:10ebb3dffe] I shudder to think what the money i've spent on cannabis over the past 13 years has gone on to do...

    There are so many better ways of dealing with it in general, i just can't comprehend that in this day in age this is the way things are. :roll:

    Auch only racketeering, punishment beatings, forced evictions, non-consensual murder, that sort of thing.

    Perhaps we should have a hilarious wee poll -

    i agree, legalise and regulate all drugs, most people are aware of the risk addiction and problems with drugs before they even take them, and that doesnt stop them, so at least give them pills that do exactly what they say on their government funded pharmaceutically packed tin, and not the ones dealt from the toilet of stiff kitten, wrapped up in toilet roll that are 40% daz automatic.

    If legalising cannabis shuts up Mr. Howard Marks, then bring it on.
  30. avatar tenrabbits
    Is it not the case that most people who work at the bleeding edge of drug addiction (counsellors etc) think legalisation would be a bad idea?

    I remember reading this before, but can't remember the details - anyone know more about it?
  31. avatar T Entertainment
    Generally speaking, no.
    It's widely accepted that having cannabis only available from dealers means its strength can't be regulated and people are much more prone to being offered - and buying - harder drugs.

    pints come pint sized so you know what your at.. if alcohol was sold like ye olden cannabis people would probably fear it; like 'here's a glass of alcohol, I'm not telling you how strong it is, what the ingredients are or where it was brewed, I'm not telling you how long it was in the cellar, what country it came from or how much your going to get for your money, i will not give you a receipt and should you dislike it you really dont have a comeback, i can give you no warranty to the side effects or the levels of impurities, and it might be all thats available for the next month, now drink up' - there's plenty of folks who'd like a wee drag on a saturday night to ease the backache, but dont want to commit to four lava lamp themed floyd albums washed down with a gallon of soft drinks and a metric tonne of tayto's... but when there's no label on the side folks are generally not going to bother, in case of the latter / and the quarterly blood samples at the factory have to stay clean enough to avoid a confrontation.... then there's the painkiller ladies who neck 3 neurofen a day without batting an eyelid; its sold over the counter and its got a label, so it must be ok..whats it do again??? what were those side effects?? - then they know well enough not to neck the whole packet every time they open it. specifically, delegalisations and without intelligent regulation leads to overconsumption and cultification, marginalization and blissful blissful ignorance, methinks. but every generation gets its moonshine and poteen.
