Weeding out a bad law — 12 Comments

  1. Sorry to rain on your little pot party GD, but I'd beg to differ than it doesn't have detrimental effects if used in excess.   I've been around people who've smoked a bit too much of it for their own good and well, they've become a little fucking looped.  I'm specifically speaking about an ex 'boyfriend'.. altogether he was more of a shag buddy really.  Come to think of it, maybe he was just nuts and it's not the pot's fault – I'll never know as he rarely wasn't smoking it

    I would agree with decriminalising it though..  I can be a bit of a bed wetting liberal at times.. Let stupid people put whatever they want into their own bodies

    • There is no differ there.  Anything in excess can be bad, whether it's cannabis, booze or even water.  However, a little of what you fancy does you good?  😉

  2. Oops. Duplicate comment. Filled in the wrong email there in the first one GD. Delete which ever one has the worse punctuation. 🙂

  3. I don't agree that if a cannabis smoking habit results in unhappy effects on the smoker, then the action is victimless as only the willing smoker is affected  – and I know the 'experts' are still debating the effects of cannabis while the illicit smoking continues. If the habitual smoker is affected then his (or her) family/friends are affected by worry about his mental or physical condition. They may have to spend money and time helping his 'rehabilitation' from whatever condition the smoker may be in. I suggest that these family members and friends become psychological victims. Most of us are not atomised individuals: we are family. Our individual actions affect those close to us.

    • The same can be said about a lot of things?  Someone who damages their health through overeating, over drinking, playing sports or even driving can become a "burden" on their nearest and dearest?

      I agree that some people may have a bad reaction to cannabis, but people react badly to many substances.  It's just a matter for that person to avoid the substances that cause the problems.

  4. FFS, just decriminalize the production, possession, sale and use of the stuff.  As a kid we use to all gather in someone's car.  Pitch in a couple of cents for gas and drive around all evening and night smoking joints.  We would either run the "Circuit" downtown or just go drive all over the back country roads.  We didn't crash and die in horrible flaming car wrecks and we didn't fry our brains into mush.  For Christ's Sake we drove around, caught a buzz and generally had a good time.  It was a wonderful youth misspent.
