    Drug Legalisation

    Okay heres a topic.
    Firstly, heres my opinion. Personally I believe all natrual/herbal "drugs" should be legalised. I don't believe the government should have the power to outlaw a plant. To me, a drug is something that you have to produce or modify chemically, such as pills, powders and liquids.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    Well, my take on it is that alcohol is a more dangerous drug than many illegal drugs anyway. But of course, the lawmakers don't want to ban it, so it remains whilst drugs that aren't really that harmful are illegal to possess. However, I don't think any drugs are good for people, particularly when used regularly. But that's not my decision to make. My view is that so long as alcohol is legal, drugs of similar or less "harmfulness" should be legal, whereas other drugs such as heroin should remain illegal.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    Yes, no drug, even the less harmful ones, have ENTIRELY positive effects. but you can say that about pretty much anything. it's just something you do every now and then to enjoy it's positives.
    I agree totally on alcohol, and of course tobacco. They wont be illegal because theres too much money in them. Heroin, PCP and Crack shouldnt even be being produced. those drugs are truly evil.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    Meth is not your friend.
    But checking out the before and after pics can make for an enlightening afternoon.

    Anyway, my only worthwhile opinion on substances and their abuses is that the US needs to decriminalize possession of marijuana.
    An ounce of weed does not equal major taxpayer expense to provide for yet another inmate.
    Prisoner real-estate is at a premium nowadays anyway.
    Plus we could use the cash from reducing possession to a reasonable fine.

    Otherwise, I'm all for keeping illegal substances illegal.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    I think that Marijuana being illegal is a horrible decision on the governments part. ESPECIALLY the classification of it, I can't remember how exactly what the name of the groups of drugs were but I was watching something on TV about marijuana and how it's grouped in with like a classification (let's just call it level 1 drugs) which is considered the worst type of drugs out there and levels 2 and 3 go from being more to less dangerous to your health. They stated that Marijuana is in level 1 (worst type of drugs) and other drugs like cocaine and meth are classified in level 2 or 3. So basically what the government is saying is that Marijuana is WORSE than Cocaine or Meth which I think is total BS.

    If people are worried about people using it when it becomes legal, then give the same rules that apply to alcohol. If you come to work high or on drugs, you are fired. If you are driving while high and pulled over, the same rules should be applied for Marijuana just like alcohol.

    Speaking of alcohol, compared to ALL drugs, legal and illegal, alcohol has the WORST withdrawal symptoms of ANY drug! Delirium Tremens can occur and it makes people who have been heavily dependent on it do crazy things. My health teacher talked about a guy who she had helped while she was a nurse who was addicted to alcohol. During her time watching him, he decided to rip out the IV and all of the things connected to him and when she tried stopping him, the man started to punch her in the head and grab her by the hair. Other nurses had to come in and hold him down. And once all of this was done, the man was told of what he did and he couldn't remember ANYTHING that he did.

    So yeah, I do drink alcohol and have NEVER smoked Marijuana ever in my life; however, I do strongly believe that Marijuana SHOULD be legal, it has every right to be, compared to other drugs that are legal (tobacco, alcohol, etc.).

    I know this topic isn't just about Marijuana but I think that most other drugs shouldn't be legalized. I am with lloyd on this one, natural items that are not even altered by human hands should be legal. It was here when we were, so why not let it stay? Man made products are MUCH more harmful to me, than something that was taken from a plant in its most natural form.

    This.

    As someone who has used marijuana in the past on several social occasions, I can confirm that anyone who is 'baked' on the stuff isn't even fit to tie their own shoelaces, let alone go to work or drive a car.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    Exactly my point Baron. I know a LOT of people who use marijuana regularly and to be honest, it doesn't bother me at all. I could understand if an employer saw one of his co-workers come into work under the influence and be upset, hell we all would, especially if he or she isn't capable of doing anything when at work. But what that person does in their own house is really none of my business, just as long as they don't come to work in a status of a vegetable while on drugs.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    To be honest, I'll probably try marijuana one day. Generally speaking I don't approve of drugs, although tonight it's the rare occasion I'm a bit pissed to say the least (still coherent enough to type properly, though I need to be seriously pissed for that to fail); just enough for me to chill out. But I do hear that marijuana is a lot less addictive and toxic than alcohol. Totally agree with people using drugs that aren't very harmful in leisure hours. Well, the law's the law...

    I'm not going to pressure you into it, but I do feel marijuana helps a lot with the calming of nerves. Plus, yeah it's not exactly addictive, I haven't smoked in months, and never got withdrawals. Although, different substances have different effects on different people. If you do try it, the first time will probably be sh*t. just try not to make a habit out of it.

    RE: Drug Legalisation

    I do not know enough about all other drugs to know whether or not they should be legalised, but I can say that without a doubt marijuana should be legalised. The simpliest reason in my opinion for this because to my knowledge, not a single person has overdosed on marijuana, while alcohol kills a scary number of people a year.

    While I am not saying marijuana is completely safe, because it can cause mental problems for some but you can still get marijuana into your body in ways which are pretty safe such in hash brownies or through an air vaporizer. Though alcohol in large amounts will always cause problems for your liver, just like large amounts of cigarettes will always cause problems for your lungs.

    Again I am not talking about the legalisation of all drugs, but even if they were to legalise marijuana it would allow for the government to regulate the sale of it and in turn there would be less money for those in drugs wars. I cannot confirm every fact, but this video does a good job of showing how the United States' war on drugs does not work

    It may be a pretty arguement for legalising it, but I am sure we have seen at least one aggressive drunk person before, but have you ever even heard about a single aggressive stoned person before?
