It is accurate just read what the Daily Mail is writing about Cannabis!

I have asked for my account to be removed.... Where Jaysays point is accurate. I do not wish to be named as "knowing nothing" "talking crap" "childish" or whatever things people say just because I am of a different opinions, ideas and ideals from others every time a sensitive subject is discussed.

It was just like this when it come down to my agnostic views on religion. I have been told several times that 'I am going to hell'....
I know what you mean when you want your account removed - with all this slander going on!

I don't want Restless to leave the site, nor you Kestrel. I just think this topic has been done to death, so much so that there are now two separate threads about legalising drugs, and the subject is also creeping into discussions about music etc.

Obviously, the answer to your question is a resounding "no". But here is another question: If all drugs became legal tomorrow, would those who currently don't use illegal drugs go rushing out to buy bongs and weed, and heroin and needles? Those who take illegal drugs do so by choice, and there is no shortage of sources for those drugs. Those who choose not to take illegal drugs would probably not buy the drug even if it were legal. The legality or illegality of a particular substance is not important; what is important is the choice of the individual to partake, or not to partake.

Evidence or opinion on what exactly.

Perhaps Im wrong or right. Anne made a good point with the bootleg trade which I didn't take into consideration.

Least if it was legalized people wouldn't have to go to dealers to get it(unless they wanted to of course) and the dangerous resin stuff would be more out of reach than ever.

People are smoking all kinds of dangerous crap when they are smoking cannabis resin-- Ketamine, Plastic hardening chemicals and other countless terrible things. IMO there is not enough awareness about the dangers of cannabis resin. Instead they seem to focus on the plant form and genetically modified seeds or whatever. Cannabis resin contains about 10% cannabis and the rest is crap. Unfortunately I learned this information way to late or I would never have smoked it.

I have changed my mind in my opinion to cannabis being legalized to it being decriminalised. One should be able to grow a plant or two for personal use without the worry of being jailed or marked with a criminal record. If its not a commonly shared view so be it. That is just my take on it.

As for a starting another drugs thread. I don't think so KestrelX. Even if I do stick around here I doubt I will comment in any sensitive subjects again.
I share the Decriminalisation view. I have mentioned it previously.

Why will you no longer comment? you have every right to.

People need to realise its just a forum, not something to worry or stress about, people will have different views. as Hicks would say "its just a ride".

True. It's a forum. We all have different perspectives and opinions. I am quite capable of presenting my point of view, and defending it. And I respect the opinions of others ... while disagreeing with them. There's one guy on here that I have never agreed with; but he his one person I would love to have a beer with, or a cuppa, and just generally shoot the breeze. Go figure, eh. (That's Canadian, eh.)

I concur with you about not being willing to comment on sensitive subjects - some folk here like throwing things back in your face!
You have only ever got stupid subjects thrown back in your face, nothing more nothing less, in fact your last post is probably the best one you've made on this subject

Why not send me a P.M. To find out?
Maybe I'll tell you. My pm box just like my karma space is always open.
Just try to be more civil with your approach than you are on here, I'm able to use some quite tasty words in pm's that are restricted from site.

This topic ain't going away any time soon ... it's not merely about wether a substance is legal or illegal. There are a whole bunch of ideological, social, and public healthe issues tied into it ... and probably some more stuff too. And it is an issue which could dominate discussions among political leaders in the Americas:

Eric good post - you are talking sense unlike the 3 Stooges (Cashman, Less and Jaysay) who only have Knee jerk dogma to say on this subject and many others!

You know Kestrelx, you are just as bad as those you cite.
They have a different opinion to you and you can't seem to live with that........and before you go shouting me down, that they are as bad as anyone - wouldn't it just be an adult approach not to rise to the bait everytime?
These repeat drug threads have become tiresome and tedious.(I'm sure I am not the only one who feels this is the case).
